Popped in for a late lunch at about 3.30. Friendly and efficient service with great tasting food. Children's burger was the same size as an adults so great value. Super spot to watch the world go by.

Nice setting overlooking the water and service was friendly and quite quick but the food was really poor quality. Burger and fish and chips were not good at all. Not too pricey was the only saving grace.

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
