Celebrate in our Bankside bar

Our riverside bar is the perfect spot to warm up after a winter stroll along the River Thames. At Christmastime we serve wintry cocktails, craft beers, and mulled wine, alongside seasonal small plates such as mini turkey and cranberry pies, Neal’s Yard cheeseboards, and much more.  This festive season we’re taking bar reservations for 8+ guests, and if you’re looking to reserve a private area for a Christmas party or for New Year’s Eve, the Snug is the ideal space to come together with friends and family. On a Thursday and Friday evening, and on a Saturday afternoon, our resident DJ plays in the Bar.
