This was the first place we hit on our trip to London. We wanted a local pub that wasn't packed with tourists and we got exactly what we were looking for. The pub is old and beautiful and we sat on the deck because the weather was lovely. Had the fish and chips and the bubble and squeak, and they... More

This is a pub with one of the best locations on the Thames. If you want to sit outside, highly agreeable in the right weather, you'll need to get there early. The Dove doesn't do simple snacks - most pubs don't any more, more's the shame - but their food is good. Fish and chips recommended,

We went for a weekend lunch. Food was ok, but nothing special which is why I am bit set back by the prices. Friendly staff and service though! If you want a nice table, make sure you reserve for weekends!

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.
