In The Quarterdeck, just along Westferry Road, Shades of Green is owned by Bob who is a great bloke. He loves a chat about football and in fact, if you look closely through the right hand window, you can see him in action snipping away!

A family-run Italian with turbot bigger than my face! Their service is outstanding and one that we can all learn from and appreciate the lack of nowadays.

The best steak house and part of an upmarket chain. Sumptuous décor, delicious cocktails and perfectly cooked steak that you can choose from a board carried by the waiter.

A great gastropub on Narrow Street in Limehouse with fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere. The terrace has superb views of the Thames and you can go for a stroll around picturesque Limehouse Basin afterwards to walk off all the calories consumed!

The most elegant place to visit within Canary Wharf, offering a plethora of choice from its wonderful menu is undoubtedly Bokan. This popular restaurant and bar situated over three floors within Marsh wall, offers diners scenic and stunning views of the capital placing it up there as a place to visit for a special occasion or a treat. The sirloin steak, creamy mashed potato, the 'Luna' cocktail, the breath-taking views and the exceptional service make Bokan a go to restaurant to visit if you are ever in the Canary Wharf area. Can hands down say this is the place where they serve the BEST steak in London!! **Top tip - If you book a seat for the restaurant, do ask for one by the window and try to get your table just in time for the sunset so you can enjoy stunning views of the capital whilst further enjoying a gorgeously prepared meal.
