Tapas On The Dock


I love St Katherine's Dock. When I worked in the city I would often spend my lunch break strolling along the waterside, admiring the yachts and on sunny days envying the people sat outside the bars and restaurants, sipping on wine. It's a beautiful place to be during the warmer months but even on a chillier day like this particular Saturday afternoon, it's still worth the journey. No surprise that it's often described as one of London's best kept secrets.

Laura and I were meeting for a catch up. With the exciting discussion of a possible girl's holiday in San Sebastian on our agenda, I suggested tapas and Cava on the dock might be appropriate! 

We had a fabulous long lunch at Bravas Tapas, eating croquetas, Spanish cheeses and patatas bravas before walking over to the SkyLounge at Tower Hill for scones and cocktails. All the ingredients for the perfect ladies lunch!

  4. I've never heard of this before but it looks amazing. Definitely going to swing by. Like most places in London is it best to make a reservation? x

    1. Yes give it a go! I think if you went on a weekday evening you would need to make a reservation but when we went on a weekend lunchtime, it wasn't very busy x

  7. I visited St Katharine Docks for the first time last week and loved it - the sun was shining and it felt like I was on holiday! I remember thinking Bravas Tapas looked great when you went the first time and now I'm even more inclined to go :)

  8. St Katharine Docks are an amazing place to go for a stroll. I remember interning at the Times as a fresh-faced graduate and I'd always escape to the waterfront at lunch time. Also, no-one else has said it so I will...Rocking the abs! Queen of the Keto. Although I'm not sure Tapas counts?

  9. I love everything about your outfit here Caroline! But those shoes are exceptional. Looks like you ladies had a lovely catch up! Can't wait to see if you decided to take the holiday! Your photos have a gorgeous style to them here. Really rustic (?!) looking!

  11. So many things to say! Your outfit is amazing I love the crop with that skirt ( and helloooo abs )! The food also looks incredible especially that fish on the tomato puree, what is that? And lastly, tapas and cava on the dock sounds so ideal. If that doesn't already exist in Copenhagen someone needs to start it!
