Serving modern European cuisine, our chefs design a menu daily using fresh and seasonal ingredients carefully sourced from local farms and suppliers in the British Isles.

Blueprint is a restaurant that prides itself on fresh, good quality ingredients; every purée or emulsion that graces your plate is made from only natural chemicals.

Our Head Chef Martyn Moody’s culinary philosophy and passion reflects in every element of his food.  Martyn is  a firm believer in making as much on-site as possible.

We churn our own butter, cure our hams for at least six months and salt our own beef at 56 °C for 36 hours.

Blueprint Café is the ideal location for all occasions, from business lunches to family gatherings, an intimate table for two to groups and private events.

The candied walnuts on my Seabass dish were very tasty. The venue comes equipped with a good view of London!

The Blueprint café offers a fantastic view of the river and the city, we were also lucky enough to see the Tower Bridge lift in action. We went for the set meal which is very affordable (2 course for £18 or 3 course for £23), my starter of Eggs Royale was great and so was the lamb steak. My dessert was however quite underwhelming so I suggest you go for the 2 course meal and grab an ice cream somewhere else. Overall: good food, good service and a fantastic view. Give it a go!

We had a table booked for 7.15 on a Saturday evening. Helen who looked after us when we arrived was very professional and friendly. The waiter was equally as good any question we asked he was able to answer. Had a lovely meal and evening. Thank you. Mary Scott

Awful, the worst dining experience we've had in years. From the start were treated shoddily. Given a table facing a wall without a view which we had requested when booking. It transpires that a lot of the window tables are held for walk in diners - which is ludicrous. After complaining we were moved to a better table nearer the window but the waitress took the hump and was grumpy for the rest of the evening. It got worse from there, they ran out of gin and inexplicably potatoes! My husband was told the potatoes were finished and so was offered a side order of chard instead. My sole I was told came with no veg so I ordered a side salad, when I enquired what lady's beard was the waiter couldnt tell me so I suggested it might be samphire - he said not. However when my dish arrived it was accompanied by samphire and potatoes which made the very limp side salad obsolete. The dish was bland and full of bones - basically inedible. Bread for the table comprised of three tiny pieces of stale bread and the olives were chewy and inedible. Despite all this we were charged a 12% service charge and no one enquired why I had left my main practically untouched. Everything about this restaurant reeks of meanness from the measures of drinks to the food cooked without any love. The staff were rude and useless. The decor is tired. The whole place looks like its on its last legs. A very disappointing evening.

If you happen to go by this place you should try the Black bean and tomato cossoulet. It's amazing and despite that you cannot fill yourself with it, it's a parade for the mouth and belly.

I've visited the Blueprint café quite a few times over the last few years, and can definitely highly recommend the food, the service, the atmosphere, and the view. My personal favourite is their Onglet steak, which was a real eye-opener for me in terms of under-used cuts. The café is definitely not cheap, but it's by no means on the expensive end of London prices - I would say that you can probably expect to pay £30 per head, and I would definitely say that the food is worth the money.

Birthday celebration - it was a beautiful evening we watched the sun go down over London with the sunlight reflecting in the buildings across the Thames. Great spot sitting their on the edge of the Thames with London Bridge to to your left. Simple, elegant interior, good unobtrusive service and good food. Would recommend the venue - it was very comfortable and just what we wanted
