The terrace bar and restaurant at the Oxo Tower has been around forever, and it’s even nicer than it’s ever been after a recent kit-out. The terrace is big and while you’ll still pay a fair amount for so-so food, let’s not kid ourselves by saying that we’re there for anything but the view - it’s probably the best one you can have of the river and St Paul’s in London. It’s a nice spot to take your parents for brunch or afternoon tea, and equally a good spot for a drink when the weather’s nice.
