Reviewed November 9, 2013

Very good historic pub with a view to river Thames. Marvellous place to sit outside during a sunny day.

“Great Riverside view; good food-friendly waiter”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Great Riverside view and good quality pub food. A bit noisy but it was a Friday. Very nicer waiter and prompt service. Barmaid was a bit brusque but thawed out. Would certainly go again

“Disapointing”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Very poor experience. Took 10 minutes to be served at the bar by a rude barman. Not shown to our table .Half the menu was off. Ordered food and then was told there could be a 1-2 hour delay(basic pub food) and it wasn't that busy when we arrived. Asked for perhaps for a free starter we could share and they brought up 3 small bowls of chips which they charged for. Food arrived after an hour which was edible but very average. Asked for the bill but couldn't pay upstairs as the card machine only worked on the ground floor. Would not go there again. Rude staff ,poor working atmosphere ,slow and average fair.

“Lovely pub but worst food i have ever had in London.”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

The pub itself is in a great position, tastefully decorated and overlooking the Thames. A lovely place to have a Sunday roast on a sunny day right? Not at all... quite honestly the worst roast dinner i have ever had the displeasure of eating and not cheap too! The beef was ceratinly processed, a block of dry 'meat' resembling tinned cat food.The green beans were not cooked, the carrots overcooked and the mash a blob of plastic tasting displeasure. I could go on. Its such a shame because having a drink there is really enjoyable. So go for a drink but avoid the food like the plague!

Good friendly pub with a large selections of beers. We did not here so could not commenting the food. Nice outside seating area and good views over the river. Lots of history and stories, well worthy visit if you are passing
