Worst service in a pub I've ever seen in my entire life, no exaggeration. Walked in to the bar, wasn't very busy and waited to be served, waited 20+ minutes didn't get served. Moved half our party to another section of the bar and waited...More

Argh this pub! We've visited a number of times over the past few weeks. It's a really great spot, right on the times, loads of outside seating, food and drinks reasonably priced but the staff here just can't seem to keep it together! The service...More

Waited at the bar for 5 minutes, didn't get served....so walked out. The pub looks promising from the outside, right on the Thames. Some of the bar staff seemed confused or didn't want to be there. Walk 5 minutes down the road to the Mayflower,...More

My local which means I am in there quite often. Very rarely do I managed to get served in less than 10 minutes at the bar. Always understaffed and no enthusiasm from the bar staff. Always out of crisps and the food can take forever...More
