Celebration dinner at the 1665. Very helpful when I requested a quiet area and was given a private dining area which was perfect. Food and service were great. Will definitely be back.

Great setting but for a late September evening was surprised to be outside with no heaters available. Inside or outside should be made clear at the time of booking.Most food dishes were very good but some needed some improvement eg the roast beef looked and tasted as if it had been prepared at lunchtime and not at 6pm. Overall good and we will return in the expectation that the venue will improve.

Great setting on the Thames riverside, sat outside on the terrace, if it had been sunny it would have been amazing but still good on a cloudy rainy day. Comprehensive menu with a specials page but as it was Sunday we went for the roast dinner which was tasty.

Was disappointed in the quality of food. Felt it didn't match the price. Lack of vegetarian options with no Vegetarian roast choice on offer.

Lovely situation by the river, lovely tables, lovely staff. Food very underwhelming - crispy cauliflower popcorn was a soggy mess and the squid salad was chewy. The fish specials were a bit better, but without much flavour. Desserts were good though (especially the little raspberry donuts).

A fabulous restaurant in a beautiful setting, run by wonderful staff. Was my husbands 50th surprise birthday lunch with 20 friends and Carolina in events and Merlin the sommelier alongside the restaurant staff were on hand to help organise it to perfection. Excellent service and food. It was a day we will all remember for a long time.

Expensive for what you get. I had the squid starter and it was really overcooked and rubbery. I let the waitress know but it wasn't taken off the bill. The crab tortellini wasn't as nice as it should have been for the price.

We had an OK evening at the Mitre. The starter was exceptionally good however we were quite disappointed with our seafood platter. The lobster and prawns tasted like they had been cooked from frozen, it was a very expensive platter but it wasn’t very big. No butter or mayonnaise coming with it and stale sourdough bread. I was a bit shocked to be honest. But the service was really lovely and the waiters very attentive and friendly. The desserts were a bit too sweet. There was a private function outside so we weren’t able to sit by the river, and I wished we had been warned. All in all I was disappointed, it was an OK evening but not what I was hoping for.

We had a great time, my only reservation is that the menu doesn't really cater for vegans and not much choice for vegetarians. There should be more options in all courses for veggies and vegans.

Such a beautiful room and a really wonderful location... esecially if you are lucky enough to be able to park !
The food however was distinctly average and poorly executed, and offered very poor value for money.
the ribeye steak was £33 for simple steak and chips, the steak was presented as a slab of meat, no sliced preparation, no garnish ...lazy execution .
Risotto was clearly cooked by someone who does not love nor understand the dish.
the cauliflower popcorn was claggy and missed the crispness that the dish would indicate.
The starter of tomato and Burrata was very good however.
Would return for the location and ambiance, but not for the food or service, sorry !

We had dinner on the terrace which has a very good ambience. The service was first class throughout and the food excellent. Squid starter was slightly overcooked - I'm sure they would have replaced it if we had asked, wasn't a big issue.
Reasonably expensive but will definitely return, this is a very good restaurant, great attention to detail but not fussy. Highly recommend.

We were visiting Hampton Court from South Wales, and we wanted somewhere nice to have a meal for my husbands birthday, so we chose The Mitre and we weren't disappointed.
The food, ambiance and staff were fabulous. If we ever go back to Hampton Court we would definitely re- visit The Mitre

A strange experience. We arrived half an hour before our booked dinner time for a drink in the bar. But we were told there was no bar. We were told outside tables were full but I could see from the restaurant an almost empty outside area. The food and wine were good but the service was efficient rather than friendly. It was not a cheap meal but we never really felt welcome. By contrast the hotel reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great experience. Wonderful food. We both had the Sunday roast. Really lovely both Beef and Lamb. Service was friendly and attentive. Lovely wine to accompany. The only slight moan I would have is I knew some of the wines on the wine list and there was at least a 100% mark up on the ones I knew (I know all restaurants do this). All in all can’t wait to go back.

Service both very poor and slow. Had to wait ages for main course and one beef
lunch was very fatty. Avocado and prawn starter serves in cocktail glass with
knife and fork with no plate - where are you supposed to rest your cutlery
between mouthfuls, on the table - yuk. Not very smart and chic.
Standard of dress for men was bad. Flip flops and shorts is not something
I would expect in the restaurant of a 4/5* hotel.
Wines very expensive. Will not be returning or recommending to friends.

I booked lunch for our wedding anniversary, they brought a little after s saying happy anniversary but the waitress took it to the wrong table, even though they said that’s not for us but we will have it anyway !! Our table constantly got overlooked such a shame as great location!! I will book any special events at a different hotel,
We won’t be returning.

Food was great but service was a little slow, however not in a hurry so not an issue. Lovely waiter but a tad inexperienced, suggest more staff training required. Very attentive initially but as the restaurant got busier we were ignored and wine we ordered to go with main course did not arrive at all. Was deducted off the bill but still disappointing.
