W was always going to be tricky, so we were fortunate to find this super Welsh eatery on the south side of Tower Bridge on a rain-swept London night. Tom Simmons, named after the chef and MasterChef: The Professionals participant, is not going to win awards for character in its new build unit. But the food and wine were excellent, included some authentic Welsh moments, and couldn’t be faulted. Highlights included delicious starters of fresh bread with leek butter, crispy pig head (£5.50) and mushroom croquettes (£4.50). For mains, we enjoyed the Welsh lamb loin (£23.50) and duck breast (£21.50).
Desserts included dark chocolate fondant with salted caramel and banana ice cream (£8) and a pannacotta with Welsh whiskey.
