    We visited for a family birthday meal and the staff were fantastic. The staff were so accommodating and nothing was too much for them. The food and wine were delicious and the staff had great recommendations on food and wine pairings. I would highly recommend this place. We watched the sunset over the Thames and it was a lovely experience.

    The view from outside tables are spectacular. Definitely a spot to go on a beautiful day. The server and restaurant manager were so helpful with recommendation from their unique menu offerings. We even got a tour of the wine cellar and enjoyed a delicious couple bottles of rosé. We loved the biltong, beet carpaccio and salmon starters.

    I’ve been to High Timber about a half dozen times before and being back there for the first time since before the pandemic was a real pleasure and privilege. Sure, it’s not for the feint of wallet, but the food, the wine and the service certainly justify the price tag. After a glass of pink bubbles, my friend and I shared the tea smoked salmon and biltong croquettes to start, both delicious, followed by the sublime cote de boeuf, washed down with a Jordan Cobblers Hill 2017 and finished off with cheese and port. An absolute joy from start to finish and Neleen and the whole team covered themselves with glory once again. I’ll certainly be back… once I’ve saved up again!

    Our burgers were cold! Changed after complaining, so we had warm food but the burgers weren’t cooked through as we’d normally like, this wasn’t stated on the menu. One of us had steak and really enjoyed it. The chips were lovely. No real atmosphere unfortunately but staff were friendly. Overall, sadly we weren’t impressed really.

    This is a great little location with great views across the river. The service here was excellent and the food was very good. We had lunch for 5 from 12.30, midweek, and the restaurant was very quiet and almost empty from 3pm which unfortunately left the atmosphere flat.

    We had lunch here as a birthday treat for my partner......and a treat it certainly was! Although we were the only diners for much of the time (it was early on a Monday), it never felt uncomfortable. Staff showed the perfect balance of knowing how to make us feel welcome and relaxed, without being intrusive. This is a rare skill! We skipped starters and the main course food was delicious: the lamb and the halibut were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. And there was flexibility from the chef to meet my particular dietary requirements. Desserts were good, rather than being outstanding. But the overall experience was excellent. Thank you!
