Visited the buffet several times during my stay for a business conference. Buffet was a real treat, very good quality with fantastic choice and freshly made dishes. Highly recommended if staying at the hotel or even if visiting for a special occasion.

Description
At leftbank there are stunning views of the river Thames from wherever you're dining. Linger over gorgeous seasonal food all freshly cooked and served buffet-style so you can help yourself to a little bit of this, a lot of that...you can tuck into three, four or five courses! The food style is English with gorgeous international influences and it's all prepared freshly for you by people who love food. The wood-fired oven, rotisserie and hobs are always in action - a theatre of cooking right before your eyes.
