Rum & Sugar Review

Top 10 things we found out when we visited Rum & Sugar bar:

1) Canary Wharf is not just enormous, soulless skyscrapers; Rum & Sugar is located in the rather beautiful West India Quay Warehouse, steeped in history and also home to the London Docklands Museum.

2) Don’t be put off by the website. A sneaky peek online is customary before any restaurant visit for me, but the look of the website and the menu – both of which are incredibly basic – really undersell it.

3) That does mean you’ll spend the first half an hour looking around commenting on how lovely the place is. Old wine barrels line the back wall and a huge industrial pipe hangs from the ceiling. My dining partner called it ‘bohemian’. The restaurant manager said it had been designed ‘sympathetically to the building’.

4) Start with a platter. There are several to choose from. We chose meat, and were served hands down the best parma ham I’ve ever eaten, alongside other yummy treats including olives, pitta bread and a chunky pork pate, all dished up on what was effectively a tree trunk.

5) The signature pork belly dish looks out of this world. Unfortunately, the next table snagged the last portion. Food envy.

6) Order the burger, it will leave you speechless. It took my friend a full 10 minutes to actually start eating her meal, once she had finished admiring its size and beauty and stopped taking pictures.

7) The chips are amazing. Truly. Chunky, hand cut wonders. Dip them in the burger relish.

8) Desserts are laced with rum, as all good desserts should be (see our boozy desserts feature for more). A tipsy toffee pudding was, frankly, the size of my head. Meanwhile, the ornate trio of shot glass panna cottas were beautifully adorned with chocolate twills, and swiftly devoured.

9) The place is somewhat lacking in tables but this is because, of an evening, things get a bit livelier for the City clientele; live music and DJ sets are a regular feature and you can even book rum masterclasses for parties.

10) Sat in Canary Wharf, in a historic London docks building, the Caribbean theme is a tad out of place; but as there are such delicious rum laced dishes and spice infused foods, I’m happy to embrace that.
