Diners will have their dinner while hanging precariously above St Katharine Docks

Here's a restaurant that takes the concept of a "pop-up" rather literally: tickets have gone on sale for a "dining experience" which gives diners the chance to have a Michelin-starred dinner cooked for them - while dangling 25m above the capital. Those with weak stomachs need not apply...

London in the Sky offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and "champagne flights" by the likes of Duck & Waffle chef Dan Doherty, Lime chef Robert Ortiz and Tom's Kitchen creator Tom Aikens. Also on the list are chefs from Morden & Lea, Pont St, M Restaurants, Ceviche and Marcus Wareing.

The restaurant, which takes the form of a table hanging from an arm above St Katharine Docks, seats 22 guests who are "securely fastened" before the platform is hoisted into the air.

It doesn't come cheap, mind - tickets range between £50 for breakfast, to a rather steeper £200 for dinner. Lunch will set you back £125 - and if you're not a foodie, "Taittinger in the Sky" costs £75.

Dale Agar, one of the restaurant's organisers, said it was the first time the event had been held over two weeks.

"[The restaurant] will offer unique views of popular landmarks; Tower Bridge, the Shard and the Walkie-Talkie," he said.
