Visited merchant numerous times with friends during quick lunch breaks from work. Fast service, fish and chips are most of the times exceptional! Friendly, chilled staff. Perfect place if you want pub atmosphere but hate Wetherspoons across the bridge.

My friends and myself stopped in for a few drinks and appetizers. We had the chicken satay, grilled cauliflower and chips. Everything was good along with the drinks. Service was good and a convenient location (for us).

Decided to try this restaurant after looking at the menu. Went back several times. The lamb burger is absolutely wonderful! Good selection of beer and cider on tap. Reasonable prices. Can sit outside if you want.

Cavernous interior but outdoor seating too with dock view. Although a Fullers pub I found the ales al over chilled and of course over priced (that’s London). Quite noisy with the local office crowd who all need to shout to be heard over the music....More

We wouldn't usually use a large chain pub like this, usually preferring smaller independents. It has to be said also that we find London service in London quite in personal... But all the staff here were incredibly friendly and professional.
