Sea Containers


Inspired by the Golden Age of transatlantic travel and designed under the creative direction of visionary Tom Dixon, Sea Containers Restaurant brings the best of American and British cuisine to the South Bank, offering a modern yet casual dining experience in an informal setting alongside the River Thames.

The copper-clad hull guides you through to the restaurant, which boasts an open-plan kitchen featuring an impressive wood-fired oven. At the centre of the restaurant, there is an iconic 18-seat signature stainless steel bar designed to reflect an American diner, together with a Yellow Submarine which continues the maritime theme of the hotel. Sea Containers Restaurant also boasts stunning views over the Thames, a riverside terrace for al fresco dining and a private dining room with an outdoor terrace.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily and a weekend bottomless brunch. Each menu combine Modern American and British cuisine with hints of West Indian spices, as a nod to our Chefs’ roots. Incorporating a range of fresh and locally sourced ingredients, these are menus that are designed to be shared and enjoyed in the dynamic surroundings of our beautiful Sea Containers Restaurant.
