The Tate Modern Restaurant is located on the 7th floor of the Tate Modern and is contained withina two-storey glass penthouse built on top of the original building – the Bankside Power Station.
The resturant serves food from 10am throughout the day and most of the seating is reserved for dining. Along the bar are a big line of stools for those not eating that look out across the Thames. The excellent views take in the BT Tower in the west, St Pauls Cathedral directly oppposite and the Norman Fosters’ the ‘Gherkin‘ in the east. There aren’t many locations in London – especially bars – that offer such stunning views. The few others in the city, such as atop the ‘Gherkin’ aren’t as accessible or are far more expensive.
Even if you are not eating you are welcome to stay for a drink and there is a wide range of bottled beers such as:-
- Brew Dog Paradox
- Brew Dog Punk IPA
- Brew Dog Divine Rebel
- Brew Dog Tate Modern Limited Edition 10 Year Anniversay Beer
- Brodie’s IPA
- Innis & Gunn
- Fullers 1845
- Cains Raisin Beer
- Samuel Smith Cherry Beer
- Suthywk Ales ‘Liberation’
- Harviestoun ‘Old Engine Oil’
Prices are what you’d expect from such a venue ranging between £3.30 and £4.50 although Brew Dog Paradox and Divine Rebel are more expensive at £5.95 and £6.95 respectively. They also sell a cider and a perry from Dunkerton’s and a rather expensive (£15.95) 750ml bottle of Burrow Hill Kingston Black bottle fermented cider.
Whenever I’ve visited London I’ve always avoided visiting here due to it not being a regular pub but I’m glad that I did. On a sunny day it’s a great place to have a good beer and watch the boats on the Thames.
