“Wonderful Family Pub in a Beautiful Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

The situation of this pub is fantastic, on a nice Summer's day it feel like you are abroad! It is often packed in the summer, but if you can find a table on the outside patio keep hold of it! In the winter it becomes a cosy pub indoor, the Christmas period is great and this year they even held 2 Carol singing nights (on on Christmas day) which was lovely and jam packed. It is a typical English pub with friendly staff and a good selection of ales. I haven't often eaten here but each time I have it has been of a good standard.

“I must say it's one of the best pubs I've ever been for food quality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

I literally loved the dish I ordered, a delicious salmon fillet with olive pâté. My friends enjoyed their dishes too, so thumbs up for this gorgeous place. Only one negative remark: service was a bit slow, but it deserves to wait even more for the quality of food!

“Great riverside spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The terrace by the river is a fantastic spot to share with friends and loved ones. Careful where you park in the area as high tide can see the water coming up, but it's a lovely walk from Twickenham or the road from St Margaret's. Food is also normally really good here.

“great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

It is a traditional pub but being along the river attracts a variety of different customers; which makes this place interesting. Food is good and what one would expect from a good pub, but when it is packed with people , it is the atmosphere that makes this place special
