“Great Location”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Went on Monday night as the weather was lovely and with the view of the river we thought it would be a good place to eat.

Food was good , service was very friendly but I think they forgot our main , as after 50mins they noticed we had not had it and it then turned up very quickly.

Did not bother us this time as we had a lovely bottle of wine and plenty to chat about with great view.

We go here once or twice a year and have never had bad food.

Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Second time I have eaten here and was again very happy. Table outside near the river, food was excellent and staff friendly and attentive. Thanks for a lovely evening Riverhouse!

“A right old Eton Mess”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Lovely sunny day, fancied lunch by the river, arrived early enough to beat the rush, or so we thought! This restaurant has plenty of tables on the terrace overlooking the river, perfect, we sat down and ordered drinks and food 11.45, drinks arrived, we asked for a parasol as it was very hot but there were none, so we moved inside which is quite dark but nice. At 12.15 I asked someone if they could check on our order, came back and said it was on its way, 11.25, we asked another member of staff to check, she didn't come back, 11.30 we asked someone else, he said it was just being prepared, apparently too many people ordered sandwiches and there was a backlog! My 'hot' panini was stone cold, the cheese hadn't even melted. Each sandwich comes with chips and coleslaw, we each had 4 chips! One of the waiters (of which there were plenty) apologised and asked if we wanted a free dessert, as we had only paid for parking for 2 hours we declined as it had taken an hour to serve the sandwich, I told him the panini was cold but as we were hungry by that time we just ate it, he did take the price of drinks from the bill. Lovely place full of promise but the service really lets them down. I would not go here again when visiting but visit one of the other pubs up the side streets to get a better service

“Went for wine, charcuterie, and a sunset”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Very good in that I got what I wanted out of it: a beautiful sunset view over the river Thames with a bottle of wine and some great charcuterie. If you are going to simply wine and snack your way to dusk, it is an excellent venue. Our server was friendly, not speedy. It was definitely a leisurely paced wine and dine, but after a day of sightseeing I was fine with it.

“Poor”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Several attempts of this place just fails to impress :(

Lovely location alongside the river is let down by average food and can't be bothered attitude to service..

A pub that tries to be a restaurant does it poorly with " not serving now as we have been busy all day"

.... " Drinks only "early on in the evening when a nice meal riverside would be nice..

Last 3 visits been turned away for food for various reasons...

I now no longer will bother, neither should you!
