A relaxed dining experience with views of the River Thames

Designed by visionary Tom Dixon, Sea Containers Restaurant is an all-day dining experience on the River Thames, suitable for any occasion. With an American-British-inspired menu designed for sharing, our dishes celebrate seasonality and local ingredient-led cooking, with a touch of British quirk. Expect a relaxed, inclusive atmosphere, with friendly and engaging staff who create memorable experiences.

Mid-week lunches are light and bright – make it a long, leisurely affair, or pop in for a quick bite and a revitalizing riverside view. Dinners are more intimate, with cosy corners for two and plenty of larger tables for family and group get-togethers.

The vibe at weekend brunch is epitomized by our optional bottomless Bloody Mary or Prosecco bolt-on. On Sundays, a Roast Lunch is also served.

Our Private Dining area is a hidden gem on the South Bank, offering an intimate setting for up to 22 guests, including the use of a secluded, south-facing terrace.

Reservations may be made online for parties up to 7, for larger groups please contact [email protected].

Summer Bean Feast with Ali Honour

After a string of sold-out events, we're thrilled to welcome acclaimed chef and sustainable food activist, Ali Honour, aka The Bean Queen, to Sea Containers Restaurant for a one-night-only kitchen takeover!

Come and experience this pop-up dinner where beans take the spotlight. They're packed with protein, fiber, and essential nutrients, and they're way easier on the environment than other protein sources. Join us on Thursday 30 May and and prepare to be amazed as Ali introduces us to a whole new world of bean varieties.
