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.

Came across this pub by accident but had heard of it. Is Halloween week so decorations were hanging everywhere but was lovely as added to the eeriness of the pub. Lovely staff, both were very chatty and brought our drink to the table for us. Went upstairs for a nose, nobody up there at all because so much nicer to... More

This claims to be the oldest riverside inn in London. It is a most attractive place outside and fascinating inside with its low ceilings, low lighting, its ancient pewter bar top and its history. Staff were friendly and efficient. We sat outdoors on a lovely day and viewed the activities below us on the Thames. Recommended for its interest and... More

A fantastic location with views over the river, and full of historic pictures and artefacts relating to its long history. Definitely worth seeking out just for the atmosphere and sense of history. The food was quite nice, but a bit on the expensive side for pub food.
