After my sister ran the London Marathon I booked us a meal here as it was close to our hotel and the reviews on this site were really good. I booked online just half an hour before we arrived and just an hour before they stopped serving. The staff were courteous, helpful, swift and the food was great!

I was taken here on a Sunday afternoon, we chose this restaurant as they had tables outside and they were open! We were extremely surprised that many of the restaurants along that strip closed before 7pm! However, because it was a little breezy they were not serving food outside. The staff all looked very professional and seemed knowledgeable. It was... More

Visiting this restaurant on Mother's Day, was a good test of how competent it is at a busy time. The special menu was a reasonable price and came with a token glass of champagne for mothers. The service was erratic at times with the free offer being forgotten and requiring prompting. Due to the flocking numbers of guests, any slow... More

First visit and pleasantly surprised at the layout, decor and space once through the entrance doors. The staff were very attentive and bearing in mind how busy it was we did not feel neglected. The menu should suit most palates but why do owners present menus with print so small that in the half light you can barely make out... More

Description
West India Quay is a thriving part of London in the heart of the Docklands.

The Browns building was once a sugar warehouse, built in the early 19th century by Napoleonic prisoners of war. It has a truly distinctive atmosphere and a lovely external seating area overlooking the dock.

The site is spread over two floors with a large front external terrace and lower ground floor bar garden.

Come and enjoy our innovative take on classic dishes, or join us for one of our legendary cocktails in the heart of the Docklands.
