Many thanks for your review which was much appreciated by all the staff. It was great to hear you enjoyed your meal and the service. Shame you live so far away as it would have been nice to welcome you back.

It was a mid week evening, very quite. Food is good (add some duck breasts - very well cooked) and prawns as appetizer.) Friendly service

Without doubt the nicest, most genuine staff with the best service for a gastropub we have experienced since relocating to the UK two years ago. Great food and fantastic location. We will be back

Without doubt one of the nicest reviews we have received, all the staff were so pleased. Given where you live, and that we are less than an hour by train from Waterloo station, we really hope to welcome you again.

My girlfriend an I had an excellent Sunday roast in this charming pub. Nice staff. All though they do offer a view on the Thames, you need to sit in the conservatory to have an unobstructed view on the river.
