Absolutely stonking meal for my other half’s birthday. We went when it was Half Term so it was a little quieter for a lunchtime. The staff were just the right level of excellent service and friendliness. The food was some of the best I’ve had in London and anywhere else. The sourdough and ‘Marmite’ butter was heavenly. We can highly recommend the beef and chicken both were so packed full of flavour. Desserts were delicious and the fudge and homemade truffles were some of the best I have ever tasted! This place is a must!! Book now.

I enjoy the family feeling of this place - the staff behave as if every meal and every person matters to them and they are proud of their restaurant. The food was completely delicious and very well presented especially the Lamb shepherds pie and the monk fish. The wine list is limited but what we had was also very good.
Have already recommended this restaurant to friends and will be going again.

This is very, very good cooking. We started with a trio of oysters - raw with lemon and olive oil, warm with a ponzu dressing and tempura. One of the best dishes I've eaten recently, the flavour of the oysters was enhanced not diminished by the dressings. Chicken was a very nicely cooked piece of breast with an intense celeriac puree, but the star was the chargrilled hispi cabbage. Staff were universally delightful. The dining room isn't the most atmospheric in London, but that's a minor quibble. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Oh, and nice touch - we went on Valentine's, and instead of the predictable red rose, we had two daffodils on the table. Pretty much sums up Tom Simmons - classic with some lovely touches, and a chef who stays very true to his Welsh heritage.

I took my fiancé for his birthday, he had to send his starter back because it was cold. Generally I just felt it was really over priced for the service and quality of experience.

All round fab experience! Food was absolutely amazing, lovely atmosphere, gentle but up to date music playing, attentive but not over the top service. Definitely one to revisit next time in London.

The menu is the big attraction at Tom Simmons. I've only ever chosen from the set lunch menu, but, despite the relatively short number of choices on offer, it has never failed to provide tip-top, inventive dishes, served by friendly staff. The decor is shiny and the big glass windows let the light in nicely. While the views are fairly ordinary - mostly other aspects of a large moden development - the location, near the Thames at Tower Bridge, and only a few minutes walk from London Bridge rail and underground stations, is an area bustling with attractions.

Came back after one year from my last visit, discovered this little gem thanks to my girlfriend and we both fell in love with the cuisine, the restaurant is quite small but is always full so I recommend to book in advance! We shared all the food and all was amazing, I love exploring new restaurant in London and Tom Simmons is my number one restaurant so far.
Keep going like this team!

Such a pleasure to find really well-cooked, imaginative and very tasty food at a very good price. The service was very professional, the ambience relaxed, and we had a very enjoyable lunch. So nice not to be the least bit disappointed in a new London restaurant. The Tea-brined Chicken was brilliantly crunchy, moist and so tasty, and really good bread and flavoured butters. The cod and lamb mains were thankfully not too big, but again packed with well balanced flavours. I can't honestly say that the chips were amongst the best I've had (certainly not after the original triple-cooked chips at the Hand and Flowers), but novel and good enough. We were very glad we squeezed in the warm chocolate mousse, as it was quite perfect and even better with the piquant sorbet. A really excellent lunch.

Fourth time eating here and definitely not the last. Outstanding cooking, really excellent. And I think the price is very good value considering the quality, especially the set menus. I'm going to keep going until they win a Michelin star and put the prices up!

V relaxed dining room style in upstairs dining. Pan fried monkfish was extraordinary. Our table also ordered roast lamb. This was excellent and v reasonable price. Monkfish was bit expensive. Overall v pleasant, service was swift and attentive. Will visit again.

We were looking for somewhere to have fantastic food that would be fairly quiet. I booked through Open Table and saw the mushroom croquettes on the menu. They were even better than I’d hoped for! The service was good and the rest of the food was excellent.

Great food, ambience a little lacking but that’s because we dined early so it wasn’t ‘buzzy’ yet. Service could have been a tad more alert and proactive...for a pre theatre reservation it’s good to have service team overly check in to get those orders in within minutes of seating. But very friendly and competent overall :)

What a find. We had the pre theatre set menu which excellent and was good value. Service attentive and friendly. If you are seeing a show at the Bridge Theatre this restaurant is perfect. I only gave a lower rating for ambiance as we were the first there, but the restaurant filled up before we left. Try to get a table upstairs as the downstairs door would have made dining cold and draughty on a winters night.
