Our beautiful glass-walled private dining room can seat from 12 up to 22 guests for breakfast over three round tables and overlooks the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, with stunning views of the London skyline.

We have recently introduced new menus at breakfast, starting at £25 per person, making our private dining room the ideal place for larger breakfast gatherings. At breakfast you can also use AV equipment, which isn’t possible at other times, so it’s a perfect spot for a meeting, brainstorm or presentation.

Officially there’s only one Pancake Day – or Shrove Tuesday, to give it its proper name – which this year falls on Tuesday 4th March. But we think you’ll like our special pancake dishes so much that we’re making them available not just on Shrove Tuesday, but for the rest of the week as well, until Friday 7th March inclusive.

Wake up to eggs & bacon on Collop Monday!

aqua shard Eggs & Bacon: 63˚ͦ steamed egg, crispy bacon and potatoes, potato mousse

You’ll probably know that Shrove Tuesday – also known as Pancake Day and Mardi Gras, or ‘Fat Tuesday’ - is a Christian tradition, whereby rich ingredients including milk, eggs and sugar are purposely used up before they are given up for the fast of Lent.

Less well-known-about however is Collop Monday, the day before Shrove Tuesday. This was traditionally the day to use the last of the meat in the house, (a ‘collop’ is a piece or slice of meat) which was usually bacon, served with eggs. The fat used to cook the bacon was then kept and used to cook the pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, ensuring that nothing went to waste.
