Charming Pub on the River

Had lunch there yesterday Very good food, and an excellent choice of ales. Right on the River, so if you want a table outside it's best to book. Good service, with lovely views.

As a family of four we went to The Dove to have a good dinner on our last day of our London vacation. Three of us went for the most expensive dish on the menu card - the sirlion steak (at GBP 18). After the plates were served we all realized that the food was not hot, either the serving... More

This is a fabulous pub - tucked away just off one of the busiest roads into central London. The food is delicious, great beer and the location is very special - as its on the Thames River. You can enjoy a lovely meal, enjoy a beer and appreciate the view - watching the boats and rowers on the river and... More

The location of this pub is fantastic - right on the river and with a great outlook. Service is friendly but the last few times when we have come here to eat they have always run out of whatever we wanted to order, which is becoming increasingly annoying. This is especially irritating as we have come at mainstream times, either... More

Hi Vicky, Thank you for your review, and your comments about certain dishes sometimes being off the menu. At the Dove we pride ourselves in serving only the freshest food, and so in peak times we can occassionally run out of certain items on the menu. We would probably recommend that you perhaps you book and pre-order in advance next,... More

This is a place to have a Pint.. Stayed 2 blocks from here so we went a few times. Food was good, beer was great.. But the atmosphere was phenomenal.. Nice bartenders, we got to catch some Irish musicians.. I highly recommend..

A great historic pub with modern cuisine. Lots of fresh flavors, okay service but overworked, amazing location for a walk along the river. Very nice vegetarian options. Good cheese plate.

The Dove is a quaint pub on the river thames. We recently started having Sunday lunches here in the past few months and were surprised what good value for money it was in comparison to the other river side pubs. The service can be a bit slow but the staff is always friendly and the food comes quickly out of... More
