A charming, much-loved pub with incredible history, The Dove has been a fixture of London life for centuries. Set right on the River Thames, it's the best pub in Hammersmith for great atmosphere, wonderful fresh food and, of course, a quenching pint of ale.

The world smallest pub bar is more than just a novelty. The food we had at lunch was delicious and beautifully presented. Great place to experience an old pub.
