What they say:

Perkin Reveller is a London dining and drinking experience near Tower Hill, overlooking the Thames. This Middle age-inspired restaurant bar aims to highlight British culture and heritage in a very unique place: the Tower of London. Created by fans of good food, good drink and good times, Perkin Reveller sets out to offer a place where you can come together - over a jug of locally brewed beer and a platter of freshly cooked food. And to give Perkin Reveller a real medieval atmosphere, much of the decoration and dishes will be individually crafted by master artisans; while at the same time supporting small producers and local suppliers.  

What we say:

Perkin Reveller has been inspired by Geoffrey Chaucer and his Cook's Tale - a story he never finished, but with this bar in the Tower of London the fantasy lives on. The Cook’s tale tells the story of a young boy apprentice, in the food-seller guild, who relished so much in having fun around London- dancing, eating, drinking- that he was called Perkin the Reveller. The new City restaurant bar is indeed closely linked to the famous writer and poet as he took part in building the Tower Wharf in 1389. At the Perkin Reveller bar, you have the opportunity to taste beers and clink pints in homage to Chaucer’s little hero - with one of the 200 cups and 100 beer jugs hand-crafted by a local potter.
