I visited the Prospect in mid-December 2014 for a Christmas meal with a few mates. I can honestly say I've seen better food in school canteens. And that's before Jamie Oliver went on his school meal crusade. The turkey was Bernard Matthews-esque, the veg was cooked to a pulp and the roast potatoes were truly horrific. I really don't know...

I don't come here as often as I'd like to as it's quite a trek to get to, but it's always worth a visit. Inside, this pub is amazing with a glorious history attached. It's cozy with little hideouts, bar resting on barrels, ol' decor, and creaky staircase & floorboards. Feels like you've gone back in time. The terrace is... More

Just have a pint of beer and a huge "The cod father". Its not that about the quality of the food but becaue of the different living room areas and amazing terraces just above the river Thames. Amazing for summer drinks.

I actually had lunch at this historic waterfront pub, September 2013, but have to select a later date to post this review. I had just been on my 4th bike ride with Tally Ho! Cycle Tours - East London (also reviewed here at Trip Advisor). Jack (owner of Tally Ho!) and I had done the ride on our own and... More

The prospect of Whitby has lots of old world charm and comes with excellent views of the Thames from the garden and balcony. The food is tasty and good value, beer is good and also inexpensive, good atmosphere also. It's generally just a very pleasant place to come for food and booze. I have booked a table for parties on... More

A great location especially on a misty, wet afternoon. Full of history and well worth a visit if you fancy going back in time. The food is more than acceptable and the portions are generous. Plenty of space within the pub and the views across the river are outstanding. Friendly staff who do more than make you welcome. Well worth... More

This pub has all the right ingredients for an excellent pub. The location is superb looking out onto the Thames . The pub has plenty of history and character. The food and drink is good pub grub. The real problem is the table service is so poor. We visited on a rather quiet Saturday afternoon. Knowing this pub well, a... More

Lovely views, good beer and food what you'd expect from a pub, neither sets the world on fire but does not leave you hungry after either! Great history to the place which continues with the locals who continue to grow the history.
