Book a table and make sure you get a river view. Good selection of food on the menu well served and as it says, nothing fancy. Good service, but gets very busy at times. Good ales too.

Called ahead Late Sunday afternoon to ask about reservations (not needed), and got a welcoming response. Enjoyed a scenic and winding walk through St George's Gardens, past the canal, and made our way to Prospect of Whitby. Charming neighborhood pub with a Thames view. Staff were very friendly and helpful, patiently waiting while we debated over an indoor or outdoor... More

The traditional pie & mash was great we had the beef and ale pie. My daughter had the fish and chips and loved it. We had a great time and would be back again

one of the nicest yorkshire pudding in a sunday roast that i've ever had, sirloin beef is a bit chewy and gravy a little watery for my liking. servers were great and all polite!

I was looking forward forward to a nice pint and some decent food in this old pub. When we arrived at lunchtime, the bar was quiet with about a dozen or so other patrons in the place. We waited at the bar along with another two guys .................. and waited............ and waited. The bartender ignored our presence, in fact he... More

What an incredible pub. The location, views, history, drink and friendly staff all great but the food that we had didn't live up to expectations. We were surprised to get a table ( without booking) on a bank holiday weekend Sunday but after 5 of us having various roast dinners we understood why. Nothing special. The burger was good and...

Why do they continue to serve terrible food despite the constant bad reviews?I go quite often because i live near by but it it's usually just for a beer.Sometime we stay longer than expected because it is actually a very nice relaxed pub so we get hungry and foolishly order the over priced food.It is always extremely disappointing.The Sunday Roast...

One of the most fantastic pubs in London, great location, tasty beer and friendly staff but every time I order the food, it is so disappointing. I thought I'd ordered safely today, a steak, but it arrived raw and cold. I complained and I was given a new steak but its was full of fatty and grisly. Please, please improve... More

Friendly staff, lots of space for large groups to sit together. The pub garden has a nice view of the Thames if the weather is good.

I feel in conflict with this place, as the location and the pub's history were really interesting and staff was nice, but food was terrible. My family and I had a Sunday roast and it was probably the worst meal we had in a week in London. Probably it is worth a visit just for a beer.
