With 51 people walking from Greenwich I had planned lunch at this beautiful old pub. To help out we had preordered our lunch by phone, a feat in itself! So with some trepidation we duly arrived at the pub a half an hour late. I need not have worried as we were quickly served excellent IPA beer and the food... More

I have passed this pub many times on the river boat clipper and wanted to visit. We had a lunch time cod and chips and whilst not outstanding it was enjoyable food in pleasant suroindings. The service was good and friendly. The pub itself is a gem and worthy of a visit....I loved the pewter topped bar.

The staff, like the food are wonderful and the guest ales are regularly changed. If you have a free night on a Wednesday then the monthly quiz is always fun but get there... More

We stopped here for a drink whilst walking around the Wapping area with friends. It's a lovely old fashioned pub with a deck outside overlooking the Thames. There is a good selection of beer, including local craft ales. We had considered this place for lunch and would try it another time. All tables were full with people eating when we... More
