The Magpie prides itself at being at the heart of the community welcoming both the locals and those from further afield. In the summer its open and airy with an amazing garden terrace that is so close to the river you can moor your boat up. In the winter The Magpie is cozy with open fires and comfy seating you can have a drink or meet some friends for a meal Upstairs we have a restaurant area with its own self contained bar that overlooks the river Thames that is great for anything from a romantic meal to an unforgettable birthday party. You can park across the road in the Walled Garden car park for £2.5 Per day an even better reason to come and visit your friends in Sunbury.

I met friends here for a reunion - the staff could not have been friendlier - very accommodating - but the food (a club sandwich) was dry and had to be sent back as it was not made correctly the first time - not cheap - about £8. Lovely location on the river - outdoor seating.

I thought very hard about whether I should write this review. The Magpie was my favourite pub for many years. We used to go at least twice a week and we tried the menu from top to bottom (and back again). Must have eaten 30 Focaccia chicken burgers, my favourite dish ever. And then a new manager arrived followed by... More

The menu has good variety and the standard of food is also good. Sunday lunches particularly. The staff don't seem that bothered with pleasantries, and the service is slow. Views over river from the outside spaces are nice, but often tables are cleared very slowly.

Having been to the Magpie many times, this pub has gone down hill. We visited recently & only stayed for one drink, when we had planned to stay for a meal. Both bar man were rude & couldn't care less, also messed up our order. The whole place inside looked like it needed a good clean & is beginning to... More

We use the Magpie a lot over the summer months purely because of its location. Plus points are Usually decent pub food at average prices Nice riverside location But there the plus points end and the issues with this pub begin 1. Poor poor service by bar staff who obviously have little or no interest in being there let alone... More

Two separate visits, require two different reviews. Here you are likely to enjoy a well presented starter, which tastes as good as it looks. The steaks are fine and you may also enjoy the curries. However, avoid the fisherman's pie. Extremely boney.

Popped into the Magpie yesterday for a late Sunday lunch (4.30), although they had been very busy the service was excellent and the roast beef very good especially with a glass of the rioja. We also did not have to wait too long, which was an improvement on a previous visit. The puddings were excellent and in particular the blackberry... More

Visited The Magpie for birthday celebration with family on a Wednesday evening after 8pm. This is the second midweek evening visit within the space of a month and once again the food was excellent. The menu had changed on the second visit and still thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

Set right on the river at Sunbury, so the outside seating is perfection if a little cramped. Food was typical pub grub, sandwiches with chips, excellent coffee, not much to criticise but nothing special. Staff nice but when I mentioned the 'Ladies' was in total darkness and no light switch in evidence - no one seemed bothered. Took a peek... More
