The food here was exceptionally good and the service was excellent and friendly. Very attentive without being too much. A little overpriced but then it is situated in the City. I slightly larger menu with a few lighter options would have been great but what food was on offer was done to perfection.

Pretty icy service and I would not say the environment came close to justifying the extremely overpriced food. Yes, the outdoor seating gives a view of the river Thames but don’t expect a sophisticated setting.

Service was great. My beef burger was cold in the middle but the chips were really nice, although the portion was tiny! Also didn’t realise the kitchen would close at 3pm, it would have been nice if that was made more obvious at the time of booking.

The only BUT I can mention is that the waiter recommended octopus carpaccio and it wasn’t at all the best dish they have. Croquettes are really good, and the ribeye and sides too. I don’t recommend the octopus at all

Amazing tasty fish dish and steak dinner. The best sea bass recipe I’ve ever had! Visited on a quiet night during Covid. Cheaper than some other quality food places nearby.

A hidden gem - great food with a South African flavour in a place you wouldn't stumble across by accident! Right on the river and a very pleasant place to be. They coped very well with COVID, too - plenty of space and social distancing measures observed.

Wonderful celebration meal. Sat outside to enjoy the sun setting over The Globe and listen to the Thames lapping against the river bank.
Food was delicious, the service was excellent - attentive without being officious - and we were given a complimentary glass of dessert wine to top off a really lovely evening.

Well it's only two weeks since I was last there which speaks for itself. The only difference was I had a Don Pedro instead of the Malva Pudding, and a splendid Lismore 2016 Syrah instead of the transcendent 2015 Cobblers Hill. Oh and I had cheese too; the usual top notch aged Comte, plus a couple of other good ones.
