Concierge.com's insider take:
After getting your fill of art at Tate Modern, cross the Millennium Bridge and fill up on Falmouth crab, Duchy of Cornwall oysters, and grilled Dartmoor hog's pudding in the buzzy atmosphere of Northbank. Created by Christian Butler, formerly of Baltic, this place aims to make the most of the cracking view over the Thamesthere's raised banquette seating indoors and soft wool blankets (this is England, after all) for those who choose to sit on the outdoor terrace. Butler and head chef Peter Woods have their roots in the West Country (around Cornwall and Devon), which is reflected in both the food and the alcoholthere's mead from Somerset, cider from Devon, and even a white wine from Cornwall. For those who want more tried and tested vintages, there's also a huge selection of international wines from Lebanon via Austria to Oregon.
Open Mondays through Saturdays noon to 11 pm, Sundays noon to 5 pm.
