Wining and Dining

This area is well known for its huge choice of top class restaurants and bars and the riverside is a popular after work haunt for city workers stopping off for a meal or glass of wine on the way home.

Within 200 yards of The Penthouse you’ll find more than 20 restaurants, pubs and bars.

These are some of our favourites.

Blueprint Café
