What we say

The Vauxhall Quay is close to achieving a Fish2fork blue fish rating and serves some highly sustainable seafood, including crab from the West Country and mussels. But their online menus provide little information on origins and the restaurant did not respond to our requests for more detail. Our biggest concern is the use of king prawns - do they come from a sustainably certified farm? - and we would like to see much more information provided clearly to customers.

What they say

Simply, a stunning view day and night

About The Vauxhall Quay

A waterside hotspot bar, pizzeria and live/DJ music club, food here is as fun as the cocktails. The star turns are the thin-crust pizza baked in a wood-fired stone oven: top of the range are the Meat Feast (£12.90) with Napoli salami, spicy chorizo, bacon and beef chunks, the Marinara with clams, mussels, prawns, salmon and calamari, and the Big Ben - don’t ask. There are pastas, posh sarnies (chicken, mozzarella, tomato and pesto in warmed rosemary and garlic focaccia, £6.90), nibbles (butterfly king prawns with Thai sweet chilli dip to baked meatballs in homemade tomato and red wine ragu), salads (no prizes for guessing Caesar) and the irresistible guilty pleasure of “A Knickerbocker Glory” (£5.50). Add to this a choice of 2-4-1 cocktails (we’ll have the Booty Shaker and the Boogaloo) and you’re on your way to a great party night out.
