Welcome to The Magpie. We pride ourselves as a beautiful riverside gastropub with an amazing dining room overlooking the Thames, serving fresh seasonal food with an impressive range of real ales, craft beers, an extensive gin list and a great wine list.
We offer full table service in every part of our premises.

We are a dog-friendly pub as long as they are with well-behaved hoomans but do not allow dogs in our dining area if you would like to bring a four-legged friend please let us know and we can seat you in our bar area.
Luckily enough, we are lucky to have a car park just across the road if you are coming from afar.

We have a click and pay app for our guests staying with us as well as for takeaway.

We are now a cashless and Over21 pub only, please bear this in mind.

    My wife had the hake, was the smallest piece of fish i'd ever seen served. Was the smallest element on the plate. I had the beef and it wasnt that tasty, the side of mash was also under seasoned.The service was however good. We were not charged for the hake after complaining, which was appreciated.

    We took an elderly relative to lunch at The Magpie which requires some patience and understanding and although I felt a bit nervous at how we would manage, the staff were extremely helpful and understanding. We had a very relaxed lunch with tasty delicious food. Our lovely elderly companion really enjoyed his meal, reflecting that it is quite an effort for him to leave home. Thank you to the staff for all their help.

    Really great time with my parents for my birthday. I did feel like we were a bit of an inconvenience to the waitress but think they were busy. They also didn't think to tell us what time they were closing the kitchen so we came to order deserts and then were informed they had actually shut the kitchen until 5. Not a big deal but was a birthday and we were all eying up a pudding! Would still recommend! 100% be coming back!

    The main meal was poor on this occasion there was no outstanding of what the gravy was made up as a vegetarian I’m glad I asked as bacon was in it! There was a rowdy bunch which spoilt the ambience whilst i happened to be there . The food was standard it’s a shame as it’s in a beautiful location

    The food was very disappointing. There was no imagination at all. Burgers and and a pile of chips looked like they were dumped on a white plate. No garnishing or anything on the side. Not attractive presentation at all. Booked our table. On arrival couldn’t find anyone to help us. Reception was cold indeed. Pity they could be so much better being located where they are.

    Hi Ruth, we're very sorry that you were let down by the presentation on the meal you received. We will ensure that your comments are taken on board. Thank you very much for getting in touch.

    Have not eaten in The Magpie since before lockdown. 1st choice of starter not available (always a disappointment) 2nd choice did not excite me and didn’t warrant the price tag. Main had some good flavours but texture of veg not good. Was offered an alternative but to be honest not feeling like trying anything else that may have

    Ordered:Fish Finger Sandwich, Chicken Club, Salmon Fishcakes & Katsu Curry. The sandwich and chicken club were less than average! Chicken in the club were quite dry. Overall was not nice. Salmon fishcakes were ok. Katsu Curry sauce was not great, quite bland. Hence why, I feel the food were overpriced. When booking was asked if it was for an occasion and I did say for a birthday. I think to top up on customer service, management could have done something a little extra for this special occasion. I was having lunch with my family for 45th before our son goes off to uni.

    View and service was great but the food was Luke warm, mediocre and lacked any flavour or presentation. We had the burger which was approximately £14.50 and came with no salad, or even a lettuce leaf to dress the plate. It looked uninviting and therefore it was.

    Didn't actually eat here but a really lovey pub. The garden is delightful and we had some lovely views out onto the Thames. The service was really great and they had some good drinks on tap. it was quite pricey but pretty much what you'd expect in London. Will definitely be returning.
