See above! 5 of us meet twice or three times a year. This branch of Tibits it new to us but it proved to be more than we expected. Everyone enjoyed the food, drink and atmosphere. We noticed another group of women having as good a time as we were. The young (younger than us, anyway) staff were great, dealing very pleasantly & professionally with a rather fussy member of our group, taking group photos & being available even while clearing up between lunch & the evening rush. We will be back, either as individuals or together again. Thank you

The hospitality and food at Tibits was fantastic. We had a group of 8 and everyone found something they really enjoyed. The setting is beautiful, we will be making this a regular spot in the coming months and I plan to bring more groups to enjoy the delicious and healthy food.

Extensive offer of dishes, hot and cold. Delicious food and excellent value for money. The French Viognier white wine was very good indeed. My friends and I ( party of 5) celebrated a belated birthday and we all said how good the lunch was. We had a superb lunch thank you.

Good food, nice venue - but a bit pricey considering it is a buffet affair.

Reviewed On
Restaurant Response

Hi John, thanks for taking the time to review, although sorry to hear you felt the price was at odds with the concept. We find giving the freedom to guests to create their own plate of deliciousness, whilst reducing food waste and making the dishes as allergen accessible as possible is a truly unique experience and not something you'd find in every restaurant. After all, we're about so much more than being a buffet. We hope you'll visit again soon, but in the meantime if you'd like to discuss further then we'd be more than happy to chat, just email [email protected]

Food quality very good, concept great. For the booking I was expecting to be in the glass area at the back, I had no idea there was a party of 17 preventing us being there that so would have preferred to know that the booking was difficult rather than sit in the buffet area itself. The food is stunningly expensive! We were all taken aback, one colleague paid £18 for a plate of veg! Some customer scales, so we know where we've got to, would be good, better still a more sensible price

Hi Chris, thanks for the review and feedback. Our space at tibits Bankside is anything but usual so sometimes when we get a few larger bookings together we have to be a little clever with where we seat everyone to ensure they can have an as good an experience as possible. We can't always let bookings know in advance where they are seated, or guarantee them a specific table, as it really depends on the business of the diary and what the team can do on the day! When it comes to the food, the concept of paying by the weight of the food can be a little unusual for some, especially when we are essentially a 'buffet'. From our side however, there are a number of factors that go into locating, sourcing & recipe development when it comes to all the dishes that we serve on the boat, rather than being just vegetables we feel the price and concept matches our values in terms of the seasonality, sustainability and most importantly the taste of each ingredient. Don't forget though, we're always happy to offer discount to local business and neighbours to the area too!

Hi David, sometimes it can be a little tempting to take quite a large plate, we eat here every day so completely understand! The tibits concept is that you can have as much or as little as you like, and often we encourage first timers to take a little of anything that takes their fancy so they can get used to the concept first. Don't forget, we always offer discount to local neighbours and employees, as well as our loyalty scheme too - just ask the team when you next come in!

Such a brilliant concept. Eat as much as you feel you want, and choose, self-service, from the buffet. Great idea for reducing waste. Both vegan and vegetarian dishes offered, and all delicious.The atmosphere is great - informal and welcoming, and all round, we had a super pre-theatre supper. Will definitely return, and have already recommended to friends, both in UK and abroad.
