Set in a historic warehouse on the north bank of the Thames, The Pepys is a hidden gem in the heart of the City. We serve a menu of modern British dishes, grills and stone-baked pizzas all accompanied by a wide range of draught beers, wines and expertly mixed cocktails. Whether you join us for a drink on the balcony or drop in for coffee and cake from our dessert bar, you can be assured of the warmest of welcomes. We are open every weekday from midday until late, and are available for private bookings at other times. We are highly experienced in hosting corporate and other events. Please call us to discuss your requirements. "A great choice for a Thames-side drink or bite to eat." -
