Awesome little find by the river Thames. Great river walk from Chiswick and close to Hammersmith. Really nice staff with good choice on the menu. Typical nice cosy London Pub.

A place to take lunch or just a pint. Sit outside at the terrace by the river. A real gem . Not far from the underground station.

Been some while since we last visited. Really enjoyable early evening dinner. Food choice limited but acceptable, food quality excellent. Service very good, staff friendly, prices average. Great location on the Thames, quite small inside and very busy, all contributes though to a great atmosphere....More

I recently tried the South coast crab which was really disappointing with a garnish of three tiny blobs one avocado flavoured, one a minute tasteless melon ball and a lemon curd gel.The sour dough crisp was burnt and seemed like over-cooked regular toast.Definetly overpriced.More
