About
Sitting on the banks of the River Thames, we've got an amazing view of Kingston Bridge, especially from our beautiful River Room Bar upstairs, which can accomodate your next party, gathering or corporate do. Our stunning riverside terrace is the perfect place for a spot of people watching, whether they be on land or by boat! In the Summer Months you can't beat a refreshing beverage on the banks of the Thames, the nearest thing to a beach for miles. In the bracing Winter, we've got blankets to wrap up in & warm drinks to keep you toasty! We serve food all day - pub classics, bar snacks and seasonal. Check out our great range of ales, ciders, wines and spirits. We look forward to welcoming you

Decent range of cask beers, slightly pricey but worth it for the location. Truly awful fish wallpaper by the toilets! Service is very nice and if in Kingston would definitely come here.

The place of in quite good, the waiters are gentle and the atmosphere is familiar. There's not a huge variety of beers and the food is good but without a 'wow!' dish.
