I visited first sunny evening of the year & friends had booked. 2 completely empty dining spaces. Had to beg to be served as 30 min queues to get served, 30 service. The pub only survives because of great location. Can’t be rocket science to...More

Friendly staff but very disappointed with the food. Kedgeree lacking fish and flavour. All a little bland and low on quality.

Sunday is Sunday and with that goes a Sunday roast. We were past the usual lunchtime roast and found this place that would still be serving later in the afternoon and was right on the Thames - we were looking for a place exactly like...More

This was so disappointing. The wine glass was very dirty, you could see multiple lipsticks on it. I asked for another and the bar tender just poured it in another glass.... The food was expensive and awful. The most basic, almost fast food burger costs...More

It's a real shame. The staff are friendly and obviously trying the best they can. But clearly have had no training. The food was average. The bathrooms are disgusting. The place is in need of investment in the facilities and the staff. The location is...More

AWFUL service, terrible atmosphere. Waited two hours for our food, was told our preorder was lost and received no apology. When our first course finally arrived, the waitress tried to start an argument with us. Worst pub in West London, avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

Great pub, good atmosphere. Only one person serving at the very busy bar? Why on earth would the manager not find someone else if they had apparently been let down? Having said that the barman was very efficient! I had the roast beef which was...More
