Jimmy's Lodge On The River

 

Dine in your own personal snow globe alongside the Thames this winter. The four private dining domes are part of Jimmy's Lodge On The River, created by Jimmy Garcia of Jimmy's Pop Ups fame. Serving a set menu which includes a trio of canapes followed by traditional Alpine fondue and the option of Cote de Boeuf to share, these snow globes are the ideal alternative option for a group get-together or a staff Christmas meal. An alpine foodie retreat, Jimmy's Lodge also serves a fondue menu at 'The Refuge', upstairs in the first-floor restaurant. In addition, there's a more accessible grab-and-go menu from the Winter Grill downstairs, so you can eat as you stroll along, taking in the winter market and views over the river. The Lodge will also be open for New Year's Eve, with an alpine feast, unlimited drinks and a view of the fireworks.
