I was introduced to All Bar One when one of the regular photowalks that I join in ended up here. This particular branch (apparently there are All Bar One's all over London) has a very nice atmosphere to it, many thanks to the River Thames just outside!

A great place to sample London's ales. I'm finding myself going back here to have a pint (or usually two) as it's a comfortable place to enjoy your drink. Service is not bad, but it can get crazy, and by that I mean you may find having to battle for the waitresses/bartenders attention.

I highly recommend bringing friends along especially on a summer evening. It's a great place to drink, make great conversation, and potentially meet a few new people as well.

Oh and when you get the chance, their Fish and Chips are delish!

Very nice place to enjoy the good weather, situated along the river. Great service; attentive, yet respectful of you social engagements. My friends and I ordered drinks; they have a great selection of ciders and beers, as well as cocktails, wines, and fizz. We also ordered food; whilst the menu is big and choice of burger in particular - vast - they only cook them well-done, which when ordering the Wagyu burger is disappointing, as you can hardly taste the superiority of the meat. The overall atmosphere is pleasant and although the outside area filled soon after we arrived, we were not distracted by the on-going conversations nearby. Price is reasonable - would recommend at visit.

The wait staff were not very familiar with the menu and when they brought the food, they had no idea what they were bringing and just placed the food down on the table, declaring 'well, here's some fries' and left. The fries were barely warm and that's how the coffee arrived too. Disappointing experience as the prices were not exactly cheap. The only nice thing was the decor, which we admired for the reasonably short amount of time we spent there before we paid and fled.

If Tuesday evening Come and dine! 4 to 20 lbs bottle of wine and tapas! The menu of the British hit good taste and price, Tower Bridge, the view is good, then added to complete ^^ Tuesday, if not notably Koreans prefer, they got a lot to eat this and that by sharing menu. Again, please just sit down and start eating before dark! Watching the night view of Tower Bridge before it gets dark to you like a drink or eat dinner too good. Recommended ~

Went for breakfast on Sunday. It was quiet, service was good. Friend got a traditional breakfast and was happy with it - it was a large portion of food. I ordered huevo rancheros and was served some mediocre scrambled eggs with a teeny tiny spoonful of vinigared beans and a couple small slices of under ripe avocado. It was served with a weird pineapple ketchup that didn't go with it. Not what I expected and very small. Disappointed.

The waitress on a sunday morning a lovely lady who was attentive and kind...
The food and the chaos of people yelling in the kitchen this morning was awful and ruined the ambience of a sunday breakfast
I ordered full breakfast - scrambled eggs.
It was dry and bland, i dared not to ask for anything as i would have wait for something and hear the continous yelling from the kitchen!!!

Bankside location at Butler's Wharf overlooking the River Thames just downstream from Tower Bridge. Great views of the River, Tower Bridge and the London cityscape including the Gherkin. Food is of average quality, not cheap. Drinks are similarly priced. Decor OK. There is an outside dining area which is usually very busy. A typical 'All Bar One' establishment.

I ate here just after New Year and we were very happy with the food. I was awkward (ordering off menu) and confused the waitress but when I sent back what she had brought me she was very polite and my replacement meal was delivered really fast. My 85 year old Nanna found the music a bit loud (actually so did I) but they even turned it down a bit to make it more suitable for Sunday brunch.

This is by far the worst cocktail bar I've been to. We went here with 6 people at a Saturday evening 22:20. We waited 20 minutes until a waiter noticed us and in total 35 minutes until the cocktails arrived - and the bar was nearly empty. All cocktails tasted either like hand soap and not like a cocktail at all. We had 6 different drinks and none of them were drinkable. Never ever

The food was fairly good when it eventually showed up. Wasn’t sure how service worked, we gave up and ordered at the bar after being seated for roughly ten minutes. Someone eventually showed up to try to take our order and seemed unhappy we had already placed it at the bar. Not bad for a cheapish breakfast with friends.

I like this place, you can have breakfast or lunch or dinner or just drinks. I pretty much like the salads, also the pasta is nice, they have quite a few choices and all is nice. The service was average, I cannot say anything bad either good. I always try to avoid rush hours, otherwise it is a bit slow as normal.

Excellent £5 cocktails, not even just during happy hour! Meet a large group of friends here, and we had a great time. Waiters didn't seem to know the wine of the week, but they were happy to go find out and let us know.

To top it all off, really lovely view of the river from the outside area!

A great location overlooking the Thames. This place is chilled out and for me - a place i like to stop off at as i can comfortably take the children. That's not to say it is a place for children - but for those times when you want to feel grown up and you have a child in tow it's nice.

Absolutely horrible service, took forever to get drinks for the table, had to go to the bar twice to ask for someone to come by. Got our drinks about 20min later despite the place being pretty much empty. All drinks were absolutely DISGUSTING, undrinkable. Never again

It's mainly a bar, and if you come for food, there is no atmosphere of a restaurant. What we ate was good. Because it's a bar, people smoke outside which means that the doors are open more than half of the time. This causes a pretty unpleasant draft.

All Bar One is a chain, so you know what you’re getting, but I have to say that this one is particularly good. They have tons of seating (including outdoor) and the service has always been good for me. Clean, bright, and pleasant. Right on the river.

Lovely meal & great atmosphere until I discovered they scammed my credit card 2 days after I had returned home! And I left a generous tip how very stupid of me!!! It's with my solicitors now so I can relax waiting for justice to be done

Didn't take order correctly, wait staff wasn't that friendly or attentive, and pretty expensive for food that we were unimpressed with. The view was nice looking out on the Thames River but didn't make up for the experience.

We use All Bar for our month End Drinks and find the waiting staff and management very accommodating. The service is great and the beer is cold , just what is needed after a hard month in the office... Thank you to Alex and his team...

Love this place! It's cosy, warm, with perfect view on a Tower Bridge. Staff is very friendly and helpful, they're good spirits of this place. Drinks are cold, food is warm, what else can I write? Enjoy your stay!

It's an All Bar One-- where you go to get a cheap pint. The food is okay, but the cocktails aren't worth getting (overly sweet... flavour balance sort of off). But a popular place for people after work!

3 by Danielle Lloyd Review source

Good location for a quick drink along the Thames, but for foods a bit hit and miss. In my experience breakfasts can be really good, but main-courses very basic made without the heart and soul of your local pub.

2 by Anders Aarstad Review source

Good food, mediocre service. I got a dirty glass, one beer on the menu was not available and, despite it was stated on the menu that coffee was also available for take away, they did not have take away cups.

3 by Dario Solera Review source

I stopped here for a pint and would suggest finding somewhere else as the area can do much better than this place. It is clean and sells a decent selection of beer but it does not offer much more than that.

1 Star for good food, 1 star for the kind and smiling waitress.

My complain was handled in a very ignorant way by the shift supervisor / restaurant manager. I expected some gesture of goodwill.

I always use this All bar one for meetings. They are very good at what they do and the customer service is always good and you get a great view of the river. Perfect place to grab some lunch

5 by Benjamin Dayo Review source

We have been waiting 30 mins for additional bread for our camebert and have been ignored by every single waiter that has gone by. We have had to ask 3 times just to get some kind of service.

Nice atmosphere and nice view, the drink menu is alright, price at normal. The food is really bad unfortunately.. I recommend not to order the tapas. The quality is really low...

2 by Camille Liger Review source

Not the cleanest, but have good choice of drinks and food. A lot of spaces outside, just next to Thames. All right place to grab some drinks with your friends in the evening.
