Location is tucked away, and a little difficult to find. Service was friendly and food and wine were exceptional.

Amazing tasty fish dish and steak dinner. The best sea bass recipe I’ve ever had! Visited on a quiet night during Covid. Cheaper than some other quality food places nearby.

A hidden gem - great food with a South African flavour in a place you wouldn't stumble across by accident! Right on the river and a very pleasant place to be. They coped very well with COVID, too - plenty of space and social distancing measures observed.

Wonderful celebration meal. Sat outside to enjoy the sun setting over The Globe and listen to the Thames lapping against the river bank.
Food was delicious, the service was excellent - attentive without being officious - and we were given a complimentary glass of dessert wine to top off a really lovely evening.

Great food and unobtrusive service (my personal preference). The round of Springboks on the house to help me celebrate my birthday was a nice touch and appreciated. High Timber highly recommended by me!

Well it's only two weeks since I was last there which speaks for itself. The only difference was I had a Don Pedro instead of the Malva Pudding, and a splendid Lismore 2016 Syrah instead of the transcendent 2015 Cobblers Hill. Oh and I had cheese too; the usual top notch aged Comte, plus a couple of other good ones.

Good as ever; great to be back. Jordan Cobbler's Hill 2015 is the best ever of this revered Cape Bordeaux blend. Still steak as good as any in London and cheaper than most - yet you also get the view.

Popped in for dinner with a friend, had a martini (okay, two) followed by a steak and the house merlot. Both were lovely and so it would have been rude not to have the malva pudding and a glass of dessert wine...

Good food and wine, and sterling service from Neleen and her Team.

Great location, with amazing views but just tucked away enough to not be super busy. Food was delicious and steak was easily the best I've had in London so far. Service was equally great. Definitely recommend.

Although very quiet, we enjoyed perfect food and great unobtrusive service. The steaks were lovely and perfectly cooked. And the cheese you chose for us was a wonderful selection. Will be back.

I visit High Timber two or three times a year. It has a good location, is friendly, relaxed, serves good food but I wish it was a little warmer. I can understand in summer when the doors are open that it can sometimes get cool with a wind off the water, but in winter a little more heat would make the experience more enjoyable. At my table during the last visit we all ended up putting on our jumpers.

Terrible worst steak I have ever had, left 3/4 of it, not the cut that was on the menu and tasted awful. Very poor quality meat. Sides were over seasoned and dull.

It was raining outside, but had a fabulous night with friends. One of our number was South African but been back once in 50 years. Food was fabulous, Sparklehorse was great as always. !!! I'll be back soon.

Felt like a place that is past its best. We were not there at a busy time but no atmosphere and staff walked round like they had nothing to do - one waitress walked amongst the tables whilst talking on her phone!

This is an excellent restaurant - the fillet steaks were superb and a selection of delicious veg to compliment
It’s a little hard to find first time but well worth the hunt!
If you like South Africa you will love Jordan’s Wine Estate - we had a brilliant time there

Not a very busy evening which meant it was quiet and not much atmosphere but the up side was that the service was impeccable!
Steak was one of the best I have ever had and very reasonably priced - would certainly go back and recommend!
