Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Sitting on the banks of the River Thames, we've got an amazing view of Kingston Bridge, especially from our beautiful River Room Bar upstairs, which can accomodate your next party, gathering or corporate do. Our stunning riverside terrace is the perfect place for a spot of people watching, whether they be on land or by boat! In the Summer Months you can't beat a refreshing beverage on the banks of the Thames, the nearest thing to a beach for miles. In the bracing Winter, we've got blankets to wrap up in & warm drinks to keep you toasty! We serve food all day - pub classics, bar snacks and seasonal. Check out our great range of ales, ciders, wines and spirits. We look forward to welcoming you to The Bishop soon! Kitchen opening hours: Monday-Thursday 11:00-21:00 Friday-Saturday 10:00-22:00 Sunday 10:00-20:30

I went for the light option - mackerel on peas.

Mr Birds Eye freezes less in a day than was on my plate!

The mackerel was good and the peas were delicious. But far too much for me to eat.

The staff were very sympathetic and gave me a doggie bag.

The beer was good too.

Hi Geoffrey,

What a nice review, thanks so much! We're glad you enjoyed the mackerel salad, I'm sure you'd agree it's better to have more than not enough! We hope it tasted just as good as leftovers as it did fresh on the plate, and are happy we could accommodate with a doggy bag.

Hopefully you'll stop by again soon and try some more of our seasonal menu.

Kind Regards,

Visited Kingston on a lovely sunny day to do some shopping, and decided to walk along the river to find somewhere to have lunch. The Bishop did not disappoint. Had a delicious fish finger sandwich served with crisps, and sat upstairs on the little terrace overlooking the river! The staff were very friendly, and made sure I was looked after!

Hi there,

Thank you for leaving us a review, and such a great one at that. We also think our terrace is the best spot in the pub, and a fish finger sandwich is just what you need after a long days shopping!
We hope you'll visit us soon.

Kind regards,
The team at The Bishop

I love the Bishop for a drink by the river and have used their upstairs function room several times for different events. Their salt beef sandwich is mostly coleslaw though; I only had one thin slice of salt beef - and had to send it back at first because it came out with the wrong bread!

Hi Anna,

Thanks for your review. We're glad you've had a good experience in our upstairs room on multiple occasions and we hope you choose us to host more events in future.

We'd like to apologise that your sandwich wasn't up to our usual high standards, it's one of our best sellers and it's a shame that it didn't deliver. I will have a word with the kitchen to unsure our standards are maintained.

If you'd like to discuss further drop in or send us an email to bishopevents@youngs.co.uk.

Kind Regards,
Chloe Morant

As tourists, we went there to enjoy the atmosphere of a British pub and had few rounds of drinks. Staff are nice, place is not too noisy that we could talk. In summary, a very enjoyable evening with family and relatives.
