About The Table Café

In an area known for its constant progression, The Table Café on Southwark Street sits comfortably amongst its Bankside neighbors, evolving as the neighbourhood itself has done for thousands of years. From a small restaurant selling sandwiches and salads, the Table has grown into a thriving business with a diverse menu centered on impeccable quality and sustainable resourcing. The menu? Simple food with flair. A full English to rule them all. The Stack, the Brunch burger, the Breakfast Bruschetta, the buttermilk pancakes and flat-iron waffles, a bar food menu focussed on seasonal British ingredients. They are the simple things you want crafted to complex masterpieces. Opening just as you need your first cup of coffee and closing long after the last of those essential after-work drinks have been sipped, the restaurant strives to make sure that customers feel part of the Table Community seven days a week.

Shaun Alpine-Crabtree, chef and now co-owner, helped establish the Table Cafe in partnership with internationally renowned architectural practise Allies and Morrison. An 11-year relationship that has created a business intent on being unique. Supporting them and providing the backbone to their dream are carefully selected British suppliers and a few innovative partnerships made along the way. It has been their collaboration with homeless charity, St Mungo’s, purchasing fresh herbs and vegetables grown in an allotment underneath the Shard, which speaks of the restaurant’s need to be fiercely independent.

Simply put, The Table is a constantly evolving story of the people that work there, the customers that visit, and the creative food and drink produced. A triumvirate moulding the restaurant as a cornerstone of the community.

Food was delicious, blue pancakes looked amazing, however the scrambled eggs and salmon, the salmon portion was tiny unfortunately. Service was very good until paying where it took 15 minutes for us to get the bill.

We had a lovely time and the service was amazing. The waffles are the BEST I've had in the UK. Having moved from London a couple of years ago it's always such a treat being able to pop in for brunch.

We had a great experience for a team brunch with great quality food options (healthy and not so much), menu selection (for vegan and nonvegans), along with a beautiful environment. Great brunch - I'd be back for dinner for sure.

This was my second time at The Table and I will definitely be returning. The menu offers great choice and the Garibaldi cocktail I had was just delicious! The staff are warm, welcoming and pitch their level of attentiveness just right. My only (minor) issue was that my friend and I were seated very close to other customers when there was ample space for us to have been allocated a more private table. I look forward to my next visit :)

Been many times to The Table but only during the morning. It is a good breakfast/brunch menu. I can't comment on the lunch/dinner options. Booking recommended st bust times. We went Thursday 11am and it was quiet. By 12 it was full and some people had reserved tables.

I ordered the sweetcorn fritters, to which you could add Bacon as a side for £3. I asked whether instead of bacon I could have smoked salmon, and was told yes. When the bill arrived I saw I had been charged £8 for my side of smoked salmon (which was not an especially big portion) which seemed extortionate compared to the rest of the cost of the dish. I then checked the menu and noticed smoked salmon was listed as a side to other dishes and the price was £6 - still expensive I thought but less than £8. When I queried the bill, the manager explained to me that the price was not a mistake but was justified by the fact that “their smoked salmon comes from a very small supplier”. When I queried why I had not at least been charged £6 as per the menu, she said that the price of the sides varies depending on which main dish you order, as they make a bigger profit on some main dishes than others(!) and therefore on those dishes, can afford to offer sides at a slightly reduced price. My dish apparently didn’t fall into the category of providing the restaurant with sufficient margin, so I was charged £8 (incidentally no where on the menu did it list smoked salmon for £8). So effectively if you’re being ripped off in the first place, they will rip you off a little less as far as sides are concerned; if you aren’t being ripped off in the first place, they will try and make it up but ripping you off on your sides. I thought that was the most appalling explanation and pricing policy for a restaurant to have; arbitrary and completely lacking in transparency as far as the customer is concerned. I also pointed out that if they stand by this bizarre and extortionate pricing policy, they should make that clear to the customer at the time of ordering (ie when I said “instead of bacon as a side, please can I have smoked salmon”, the response should have been “sure but just to make you aware the smoked salmon will be £8 not £3”.) Anything else is highly misleading. This incident and the restaurants handling of it has completely put me off this restaurant and I won’t be returning.

Very good food and service. Only issue was being seated to the outdoor dining area, where every 20 seconds the door was opened by staff with a cold breeze.

The food was really average, we were disappointed. Nothing special there, apart from clever marketing machine. £12 for a slice of bread with 2 poached eggs, very thin layer of smashed avocado, 3 slices of tastless tomato and two tiny slices of haloumi is not a good deal. Chips were cold and we left most of them there. Same goes for other dishes.... shame as we had such an expectation based on their Insta page... lots of places in London with better brunch options and more generous portion sizes. Not going back.

The welcome was a bit odd as I was advised that I had booked a table outside and I must have selected it from the drop down option whilst booking online. I never saw this option. Why would I in early April? We were then advised we could only have the table for 1.5 hours which we knew and were fine about. It just made for a very negative start. However the food, service and atmosphere was lovely.

Lunch on Friday 5th April. Charming and efficient front of house and waiting staff. Lively and friendly atmosphere. Asked if everything OK a couple of times. Great to be able to have a carafe of wine (bottle too much for us at lunchtime). Delicious tea. Nice guy who chatted to us about where we were from. We'll definitely be back.

The food was nice however the service wasn't great and we were in two minds about paying the service charge. The reason for this is because we weren't told upon ordering that the fryer wasn't working so our breakfast wouldn't include the sweet potato fries. The waitress was quite pushy with drinks considering they were so expensive. They told us that they could not take food and drink orders at the same time which was odd. Inside was very noisy but outside was much better. Would visit again in future if I was in the area but not make the effort to visit.
