Truly one of London's best kept secret! A proper English pub, 17th century, filled with old and young, consisting of small rooms, an open fire, low wooden tudor beams, and best of all - an outside wooden terrace – almost alp chalet style -overlooking the Thames right where it curls east and west (great for watching the boat race). With the sun shining on the river, people rowing past, walking dogs and pushing babies along the river, you'll feel like you are in The Wind In The Willows rather than central London.

Called in here for a bite to eat last night, my second visit in the last couple of weeks. Nice atmosphere, old wordy pub with pleasant staff. I had the fish and chips, excellent, my colleagues had the Pork Belly and was the same. All washed down with a couple of pints of London Pride made for a very pleasant... More

We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express for one night as we had booked tickets to see Elbow at the Apollo. A member of the Reception staff recommended The Dove and so we decided to try it for an early supper. We were so very glad that we did. The food and the service were fantastic. It's an unassuming...

We visited The Dove early on Sunday afternoon for my mam's birthday. We were seated in a fairly quiet corner and there was enough room for everyone to get in and out, despite the fact that the main serving area was beside us. We felt so relaxed as we arrived as the restaurant was very quiet at the time. The... More

A beautiful pub with real character. But always very busy. The food is good and so is the service. We had the burger and the gnocchi. Both were very tasty. A little more vegetables with the burger would have been nice.

This was my first time to The Dove. It's an old pub with so much character. I love pubs where I have to watch my head all the time. I had the fish pie and it was delicious. It had salmon, haddock and shrimp in a cream sauce topped with mashed potatoes and cheese. Yummm

Three of us had a great meal here. The battered fish was light and full of flavour and the beef dish was rich and tasty. The desserts were to die for too. The service was swift and friendly and we lost count of the number of people who turned up to eat without booking and were turned away as the... More

Haven't been to this pub for years. I had a pub lunch, fish and chips and a pint of Fullers ESB. IT WAS GREAT. The pub is on the small side so could come cramped quite quickly. The views over the river are great. The walks along the towpath are easy.
