Café is housed within the Mint Hotel at Tower Bridge. Inside the décor is light and airy with full length windows running along the whole of one side. The a la carte menu features British favourites such as Fish & Chips and Shepherds Pie and the Market Menu which changes twice a week offers a good value set menu.

To start we choose the Prawn Cocktail and Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli. The prawn cocktail was the winning dish, served in a huge glass topped with a large tempura prawn, the mountain of prawns rested on a tangy mixture of diced tomatoes, avocado and onion. The ravioli was an artistic piece showing ’white space’ it could have perhaps done with a couple more pieces.

For mains the Fish and Chips consisted of an impressive sized beer battered cod with a small wall of chips, a little too small for our liking. The fish so soft it fell apart was coated in a fresh golden batter and balanced on some ace homemade minted mushy peas and served with a chunky tartar sauce. From the Market Menu we choose the Sea Bream with a side of Tomato and Onion salad. The sea bream was thick, meaty and very tasty, the salad could have done with a few more onions as it was more of a garnish than an ingredient.

Rhubarb Tart served with a dollop of rhubarb sorbet was so good we could have eaten it twice!

All in all it was a pleasant meal, the food was tasty and fresh the only grumble being that some dishes were a bit skimped on.
