This is a little pub with oodles of atmosphere. The food was good and at a good price. The service was good. There are a few seating options: inside in the main pub, under a glass roof and outside on the deck alongside the Thames. Really worthwhile!

During the fifties, when a wee lad, I passed this establishment every day whilst eating my packed launch in Furnival Gardens. After all these years I finally walked through "The Dove's" hallowed doors and I was not disappointed. Steeped in history, awash with atmosphere and very pretty. Everything a seventeenth century pub should be, Plus some. I sat on the... More

We liked very much the atmosphere. We happened to be there on Monday and could listen hours and hours to songs and music performed by 9 excellent musicians.

I tend to think the atmosphere is more important than the food, if you agree you'll love this place! food was slightly disappointing, just average. but the location is class, view of the river, entrance on a small passageway, and you can make it part of a walk down the river between the Chiswick Mall and Hammersmith Bridge, so let's...

This pub is right along the Thames in Hammersmith, making it a great place for summer patio dining - I think, since we couldn't get a table out there! It's a pretty tiny pub but a very pleasant one. Dark and cozy on the inside (best in winter), but sunny and attractive outside. We were a bit put off as... More

Really lovely 18th century pub right on the river Thames. Pots of atmosphere and eye opening views onto the river. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the only thing that lets it down is the poor food. Burgers have to be cooked well done according to the waitress as this is for health and safety reasons and because they... More

Booked this place two weeks before going. Explained I needed a table for 6 and it was for a special occasion. Advised by booker that the oval table was in the best position and by virtue of its shape would be sociable. Duly arrive to find oval table not booked for us and given 3 tables pushed together which made... More
