Waited at the bar for 5 minutes, didn't get served....so walked out. The pub looks promising from the outside, right on the Thames. Some of the bar staff seemed confused or didn't want to be there. Walk 5 minutes down the road to the Mayflower,...More

My local which means I am in there quite often. Very rarely do I managed to get served in less than 10 minutes at the bar. Always understaffed and no enthusiasm from the bar staff. Always out of crisps and the food can take forever...More

A fantasy pub ideally situated for views of the Thames. Service was warm and efficient during a busy period. Managing of the bar has definitely improved over recent months. Keep it up

This place has plenty of seating inside and out. Upstairs seating with views of the Thames. Outside seating with views of the Thames etc etc. Food was ok but overpriced. Service was very slow. Not impressed. Not going back.

Great location on the river and a stylish pub, but the food service was shocking. We waited over an hour for burgers, which eventually arrived looking like somebody forgot them for 45 minutes - Cold, hard and wilted. No apology. Go for a drink, but...More

Hi there I'm not sure if it's per head, but like the gentleman said, there is a an upstairs you can book and have privately. you should go and have lunch in person and get a feel. Ask while you are there. It is lovely.
