For a restaurant area the music was too loud, myself and other guests were having to shout at each other. The restaurant should investigate separate speaker systems for the bar and restaurant areas.

We ate outside on a lovely sunny day. Despite it being quiet things were rather erratic service wise. We had random things delivered to us (other peoples food) and when our order arrived there were a number of mistakes.

Puddings were nice.

This isn't a restaurant - only go here if you are looking for somewhere to drink where you can get a burger on the side. Service was very quick and friendly.

I'd walked past this venue on countless occasions but never booked for food/drink. I'm glad I did as it has a great vibe - with live music (on a Friday night at least), creative food and drinks menu along with good service.

The staff were friendly and attentive and the value for money is first rate too!

Overall a nice meal, but my guests and I were seated at different tables on opposite sides of the restaurant...where we waited and waited for each other! That's the first time that has ever happened to any of us. The place was immaculately well kept though, and the food was nice although we weren't blown away.

Nice quiet spot with a good ambience - the music isn’t too loud.

As a coeliac the restaurant had a number of gluten free options including flat breads which was a great surprise.

Would definitely go back.

We have visited Sipping Room a number of times and while my wife was pleased with her meal it was my most disappointing due to the fact chicken was a very small portion and bacon was cold and the burger roll was small and not well toasted. Service was friendly and efficient and we will return and hope that my meal was just a one off disappointment

I used to love this place but the last few times the service has really gone down. And last Saturday was the worst so far. Super slow sloppy service but a slightly abrupt rude lady and seemed liked she didn't really want to be there. The manager was friendly and quick to try and resolve.. but everything from waiting for the drinks, ordering, wrong order and incorrect bill. Maybe my last time there.. disappointing!

Have visited this restaurant a few times now and the food is good quality and wine and beer selection very good. Quite traditional cooking but that is fine for the pricing and the whole evening was enhanced by very friendly and helpful waiters and waitresses

Beautiful setting right on the water at West India Quay. Faster service and more attentive staff than at their sister venue, The Parlour. Food was burger and chips, but burger and chips done very well. Not at all rushed, nice to hang out in there, good margaritas.

Had visited Sipping Room before when visiting Canary Wharf and was pleased to return again . Ambience good whether just having a drink with friends or a meal downstairs.
Food is very good value and varied cooking at a good quality. Will certainly go again. Service was excellent / Very friendly

Attention: They do not have the same brunch menu as the one on their website! Only 20 or 30 pounds set menus. The brunch does not worth 20 pounds. Service is very slow and they got the wrong bill (the server noticed and corrected)

I thoroughly enjoyed my Sunday brunch. The service was attentive without being over-bearing. The Mimosas were excellent, delicious. The Haddock was so fresh and the chips were nice and hot. The ambiance is soothing and relaxing. This restaurant is a great place for a woman, traveling for business alone, to dine. I felt safe and very comfortable. I love the fact that they decorate with potted herbs. Too bad there isn't a Sipping Room in NY. I will definitely dine there on my next trip to London.

Birthday brunch with family and friends. The service was great. Staff are friendly and active. Outdoor sitting in August month was still very nice. Food presentation was lovely, delicious and healthy. We like healthy smoothies a lot. If you want to enjoy your meal with family and friends in a relaxing and quiet time, highly recommend the weekend.

I am a teacher from Germany who stayed in London for 5 days with a group of students aged 17 and 18. We wanted to have a meal together on our last evening in the Docklands and after some research on the Internet decided on The Bothy. My colleague and I liked the fact that we could book a table for 18 people and that the menu offered diverse meals.
I would have preferred booking by phone but then at the hostel booking via opentable was finally successful.
The people working at The Bothy were very friendly and patient when dealing with our large group.
I would always come back.
