If it is the weekend a lot will be shut in the area as they only trade in the week. In that case head up towards St Paul's or down to St Katherine's docks for choice for food.

In the week the area will be open although at lunchtime very busy with office workers. No real chains round there as it isn't a tourist area. I would still head to one of the areas above.

Friday is fine. I only ever go to London during the week. I can see why loads of places around there would be closed at the weekends. It seems that no one that works in London can feed themselves. These places are packed at lunch times. I guess half their wages goes on food and the other half on travel costs

That sounds like a plan as Friday as SMAX says the places round there will be rammed. I work about 10 minutes away from here up towards Liverpool Street and always pity the tourists at lunchtime due to the sudden deluge of office workers.

Tank and paddle is good, cocktails are good in the sky garden but watch what they charge you, last time they tried to add service even though I went up to the bar myself. Theres also a Nandos over the road

Theres loads of street food trucks and stalls along the South Bank, past Blackfriars Bridge. You could take boat (clipper) to other places on the river.
