The food is very delicate. It was over our expectations. Thank you so much for this moment. We were celebrating our son's end of school.

Really poor vegan menu, if you advertise it online it should be more than just a few veg sides

Saturday lunch time at Tom Simmons was calm and relaxing. We had the lunch set menu which was fantastic value. Very warm and welcoming service. The food was very good and beautifully presented. Only comment was the wild mushroom risotto was tad over salted for my taste but the restaurant was very kind to remove it from our bill without any prompting. Would be keen to revisit soon.

Lovely staff, great food but the design, decor and music felt like you were in a travel lodge restaurant which detracted from the overall experience and left us feeling overcharged for the privilege considering the amazing food you can get in London for a fraction of the price.

Both the beef and the lamb dishes were wonderful. Good wine. Terrific service. Very quiet and peaceful (but we ate early, before they got busy).

Friendly, helpful staff and the food was fabulous. I have food allergies which can making eating out difficult, but they were happy to adjust the menu for me. Every course was perfect. We will definitely be coming back.

Delicious and delicate menu. The celeriac veloute is wonderfully tasty and subtle - so too the broccoli butter. Lamb loin from the main menu was also beautifully cooked. The pre theatre menu is very good and good value. The wine list is small but very fairly priced. We now come here pretty well every time we come to London.

Highly recommend. Everything that we ate was delicious: mushroom croquettes, buratta, scallops, rabbit loin and leg pie. And the chips are indeed excellent. Service was also very friendly and efficient. Not cheap but we certainly felt it was worth it. Will return.

We really enjoyed our lunch. To find both regular and vegan menus was a delight. The gluten free bread was the best I have had in London. The leek and marmite butters were a lovely touch. The wine list offered different wines to the standard and of good quality. All in all good value for money all round. We will go back for sure.

Amazing well-prepared food from an interesting menu was added with elegant and considerate service. A great experience.

Despite it's proximity to Tower Bridge, don't expect views of the great landmark.

It was our anniversary and we had high expectations based on the feedback we reviewed.
Unfortunately our experience wasn’t as good.
We found the menu limited, somewhat over-priced and the location lacked privacy as it is overlooked by the surrounding flats.
The service was okay and the staff friendly but overall a little disappointing, we won’t be returning.

Interesting cooking very well executed. All of the dishes were very good, but the rabbit main stood out.
The loin was cooked perfectly, partnered with a rabbit and mustard pie which added another level. Service throughout was attentive without being overbearing. Was slightly concerned about the quoted time limits, but we stayed much longer and were not pressured at any point.

Delicious food and friendly service. A bit noisy as there was a private party downstairs and the place is quite open, but quietened a lot when they left.
Otherwise enjoyed it and very convenient for the bridge theatre.

lunch before going to Bridge theatre. Lovely waitresses, prompt service but not rushed.
Three course including glass of wine, so good value. Extra for chips and delicious cabbage.
We all had same starter of salmon, which was excellent. One had the cod and loved it, other had risotto and loved it, l had belly of pork which was succulent but a bit too salty for my taste. Pud was totally yum.

We had a delicious and stylish dinner at Tom Simmons. We were with our daughter and her friend. Atmosphere was fun. Cocktails were inventive and tasty. Food presentation was beautiful. For starters we had short ribs and scallops. Both perfect. For mains, I had lamb - delicious, as was my husband’s duck. Service was attentive. All in all a very enjoyable evening!

We had the two-course set menu before going to the theatre. The food was all delicious, especially the pork belly: three choices for each course, side dishes (delicious chips!) and bread all extra.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was neither too fancy nor innovative, but absolutely 'right' and simply delicious. Excellent ingredients, very well prepared, portion size not huge but also not too small. We had the two course lunch combination, a few extras plus side dishes, and came out well below 40 pounds per head, including service charge (attentive and friendly service too). Informal, basic, and still top quality - we will come back!

Amazing meal! We had the express lunch menu - salmon to start, cod for main and strawberry cheesecake for pudding. The food was top notch and such good value! Would highly recommend, and have already booked again.
