A popular Docklands hotel has invested £70,000 in a new-look waterfront restaurant.

Docklands Bar & Grill at Crowne Plaza London - Docklands has undergone extensive refurbishment works, transforming the dining space with a new contemporary aesthetic, reflective of the local environment.

The project was led by interior designer Amanda McMorris of ICA, and sees the eatery feature all-new décor.

Amanda said: "Our design concept, 'Reflections', has come from the landscape and culture of the Docklands area itself. For example, the new colour scheme in the restaurant takes inspiration from the effect of the imposing skyline interacting with the surface of the water below. Our aim is to make the restaurant feel very at home in its surroundings."

Daniel Loosley, general manager of Crowne Plaza London - Docklands - managed by the UK's leading independent hotel management company RBH - said: "Docklands Bar & Grill is a popular destination among Londoners and visitors alike, and receives huge passing custom from the neighbouring ExCel Exhibition Centre.

"We have made this investment to maximise the appeal of this comfortable, modern space in the heart of this historic area, and we are delighted with the results now the work is completed."

Docklands Bar and Grill serves traditional British and European dishes, as well as delicious new creations, all at good value prices. The hotel bar features panoramic views of the historic Royal Victoria Dock, O2 and Canary Wharf.

Crowne Plaza London - Docklands has 210 guest rooms, offers a complimentary shuttle to Canary Wharf on weekdays and features an on-site taxi company.
