London's High Timber restaurant fails to impress critic

Metro's Andy Lynes finds it hard to love London's High Timber on the bank of the River Thames.

"It's not that the food or service at this wine-led restaurant (jointly owned by the South African Jordan winery and Neleen Strauss of Vivat Bacchus fame) is bad.

"But High Timber's dead-end location in the soulless ground and basement floors of one of the ugliest buildings to blight the riverbank does little to raise the spirits," says the critic in his review.

Lynes finds that ,while the restaurant may indeed have one of the most comprehensive selections of South African wine in the capital, the food and its expense means a return visit is highly unlikely.
