Food at Tom's Kitchen%2C HMS Belfast

New group beverage and dining packages are now available on board the HMS Belfast, which has just opened a Tom’s Kitchen rooftop bar and deli.

Parties of up to 58 can arrange to have cocktails in the rooftop bar and groups of up to 46 can organise catering in the deli.

Tom’s Kitchen is a group of restaurants and delis founded by British chef Tom Aikens, best known for his Michelin star and role on television series Iron Chef UK. Groups visiting the al fresco dining area can enjoy views of Tower Bridge, The Shard and the London skyline. The venue can be hired exclusively by groups, or have areas sectioned off for smaller private gatherings.

The deli, open daily from 8am until 6pm, offers a range of seasonal Tom’s Kitchen deli dishes, including a chicken and chorizo sandwich with beef tomato and spiced mayo on pumpkin bread; and roast squash salad with rocket, pecorino, sage and honey.

Visitors after something lighter can choose from sausage rolls, freshly baked cakes and pastries, as well as a range of teas, coffees and soft drinks, beers, wines and ciders. 

The rooftop bar, open from noon until late, offers a menu of nautical themed cocktails, such as The Black Pearl, which combines blackberry infused Beefeater gin, lemon, and Chambord blackberry liqueur.

Other cocktails include The Kraken, made with Four Roses Bourbon, and The Lifeboat Sidecar which is made up of blackberry and vanilla infused Martel cognac, Cointreau and lemon juice.

Speaking of the opening, Tom Aikens said: “The opportunity to create a Tom’s Kitchen Deli and Bar in such an extraordinary space is a real privilege. Launching a new destination bar at one of London’s most iconic landmarks is very exciting and we hope it will become a new favourite on the South Bank for Londoners and visitors alike.”
