The Sipping Room

The Sipping Room

The Bothy

16 Hertsmere Road,

West India Quay, London, E14 4AX

The Sipping Room, formerly known as The Bothy, is a relaxed all-day Modern European bar and restaurant situated on the river in London's Dockland. Owned by the renowned Drake & Morgan bar group, The Sipping Room is open throughout the day serving seasonal dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Sipping Room offers guests the option of indoor, cosy lodge-like dining, or outside seating on the river terrace. As well as having a vast menu with small plates, sharing boards and signature dishes, the establishment is also famed for its quirky, contemporary cocktails and craft beers. Naturally, you will catch suits in the restaurant all year round, whether they're grabbing a quick small plate for lunch or a drink after work, but there is no mistaking The Sipping Room as place you could take the family for a casual evening out, or meet a friend for a bite to eat.

My guest and I started our meal with zesty chicken satay skewers and tempura prawn 'lollipops' before moving onto a wonderfully tender medium steak and chunky chips main. All courses were accompanied by cocktails- the Tiki Punch a highlight (coconut-washed pampero rum, banana liqueur, pineapple, lime & stout). Service was attentive, friendly and helpful- a reflection of its relaxed ethos.

The evening was finished with a crunchy crème brulee dessert with a piece of shortbread to garnish. No course felt too rich or too filling. My guest and I made our way through a few more on the cocktail list, including the Candy Shop (pictured above) with Tanqueray gin, rhubarb & custard liqueur & lemon. The cocktail menu includes a small key to indicate whether the drinks will be fruity, sweet, smoky, sour, etc, so there's no need to dwell on an drink option you think you may or may not like. 

With an adventurous food and drinks menu, escape from the bustle of life at The Sipping Room anytime of the day!
