Average Sunday lunch

Went to the pub on a Sunday afternoon and had booked a table which is the norm nowadays. Staff were good at first, and acknowledged the booking swiftly. After that though the service was slow and we had to go up to the till to pay at the end after no one came up to us after desserts for 10... read more

Went here for supper with freinds. Great looking pub - great view of river from our table but... service was awful! They took out order promptly but the food .. took .. an...age ... and was a bit on the cool side when it arrived. When the wine arrived (pinot noir) a waiter brought it to the table and said...

We visited this restaurant for the first time with family on a Saturday night. We had booked a table in advance which I'd recommend. We were promptly served and given the menus - it took us a while to choose (partly due to the group chatting) but we weren't rushed into making our decisions. The range on the menu was... More

This place rests on the fact it has fantastic river views. Thats it. Average beer. Okay wine. Basic food. Dreadful service. Expensive. I stopped going. Not even for a glass of wine.

With river views, fantastic great big windows with blinds I would give my right arm for, fireplaces, wall lights, mirrors, lots of candles and stunning decor in duck egg and white, this place feels just wonderful inside. The food was good and we found the waiting staff to be friendly, helpful and efficient. I had rustic little cheese and onion... More

I returned to the Dukes Head yesterday after being offered a £40 voucher due to my first bad experience. First time we went, we ordered a £60 bottle of Champagne as my mum was visiting from Dubai - the waitress brought it out, dumped it on the table and walked off. We asked for an ice bucket and they just... More

Service was poor and food was average - we were disappointed. Very loud pumping music coming up from the club below. Menu sounded good but didn't deliver. The wine was excellent though.

That's all there is to say about that. It definitely wasn't a barista that made mine. I haven't tried the food yet.

Quite a few of us shared a dinner pre Boat Race. Quality of ingredients really good . But, why try to put a culinary twist on everything? For instance a tea tasting creme brûlée ! And that was not the only one. You get the feeling the chef is trying to prove something about his skills but he would be... More

While not bathed in sun and it still being April, we were well wrapped up for four lunch on the terrace overlooking the Thames and the preparations for the start of a The Boat Race due the next day. The offering was different - we chose the 'twist' on Ploughmans which had a meat and vegi option. One of each... More
