Great old pub

Been here quite a few times and I love it, It's not very close to many other things but I don't mind the walk as it's one of the oldest pubs in London. Spacious but usually quite busy.

We made a reservation here for last Saturday 29th August for 8pm. We arrived at 7.55 pm and was told by a waiter that there was not a table downstairs in the main eating area and told to go upstairs to Pepys Room. The waiter told us up there that we were not upstairs but downstairs. We went down and... More

I have been there twice and both were on sunny days. The little beer garden got a lovely vibe to it. The food was alright but it's more of the atmosphere that you'd go for.

Had good food in a traditional pub environment. Balcony overlooking Thames. Certainly worth a visit. Would certainly revisit.

I've been to the Prospect many times. It's generally pretty good as pubs go. Usual pub food served in an old building with plenty of character. It's bang on the Thames so there are great views of the river and Canary Wharf. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

Staff great, location great - nachos were terrible. The were made from a powdered cheese with water. £11. Enough said.

This pub is a great location on the river and the food and service is excellent. They do a veggie fish dish which my friends love.

Arrived around 3 o'clock it was busy, but there were plenty of tables. The fish and chips were very good they also offer a good choice of share food which is great for a group of friends. One good point is the food orders can be taken at the table Which saves queuing up when it's busy. Overall 4 out... More
