“Average to Good”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Stopped by for a beer and to eat. Very busy but then it was a sunny Sunday afternoon. Good range of beers. Right against the river so good for 'people watching'. Had home made burgers which were good but expensive for what they were. Service was good as you collected your own food when ready having been notified of its availability by buzzer! System works well..

“Great riverside pub in Richmond.”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Lovely old fashioned boozer situated on the riverfront in Richmond. Get in the beer garden early order a pint of pimms and take in the great views up the river and of Richmond bridge.

Youngs pub, so good ales on. Food has always been decent with traditional pub fayre the name of the game.

If you're really lucky and there is an abnormally high tide, you can get stuck inside it and locked in till it recedes -terrible when that happens!

“A great venue, but busy!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We arrived for lunch without a reservation and were lucky to find a table being vacated. Another group joined our table, as this is a very popular place and very crowded at busy times. The food was good and didn't take more than 15min to arrive. A nice venue beside the Thames. The tables are very close, but this is a very popular spot.

“Great food in a great surrounding.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Food made from scratch and tastes great. It took a wee while to get but well worth it! Fish and chips great, batter crisp and tasty as well as proper hand cut chips cooked in beef dripping! Yum. Chilli con carne also great, beef had loads of flavour and as a wee side sticky honey sausages. Delicious! Nuff said!

“Great value food with stunning views.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Popped in for an early lunch with my sister and fiancé and found it to be a great experience.
The food was delicious with decent-sized portions and was cooked to order.
I would thoroughly recommend a visit here.
