Monkey Island Brasserie & Bar
Afternoon Tea may be enjoyed here or in an entrancing setting with a famous Renaissance ceiling. Cocktails and drinks are served in front of the welcoming fireplace in the stylish bar.
Classic French doors lead out to the picturesque terrace where guests can enjoy outdoor dining whilst admiring the idyllic views of the River Thames.
It is a most beautiful place . The gardens and river were gorgeous and the inside was lovely too. It was very quiet when we arrived as it was after lunch. The tea was very nice and beautifully presented. When the manager asked if it was a special occasion we said it was my birthday and she very kindly brought over a glass of champagne for the adults and a soft drink for the child with us. The manager was kind enough to come and chat with us and we told her we’d visited many years ago and she offered to show us around the hotel . Amazing ! Such style !
Really lovely spacious dining room with tables not too close together and noise levels tolerable. The food was exceptionally good with a very original menu. Our waitress, Ellen, in particular made the whole experience truly enjoyable. We will definitely be making this one our regular treats, providing we can get a booking in future as I fear it will become too popular, once word gets out.
Excellent venue, wonderful staff, even had a guided tour of all rooms upon arrival.
Great food and very attentive staff. Hotel and restaurant very nicely refurbished . Restaurant was very busy and a little noisy but that wouldn’t put us off returning. Lovely place to have dinner or lunch and the location by the River Thames is very pleasant.
A wonderful evening spent at Monkey Island celebrating the engagement of close friends. This was our third or fourth visit since the refurbishment and reopening earlier this year and the experience only gets better. Monkey Island is a unique and very special venue which still retains a lot of it’s old school charm but manages to deliver a very up-to-date yet relaxed dining experience with excellent cuisine and very friendly staff - definitely worth a visit.
Great food and ambience. Staff very friendly and attentive but the food service was a bit slow. Would certainly go again.
Enjoyed dinner here for the 1st time last Saturday. Lovely venue, inside nice menu, not too complicated, smoked salmon was superb! We will definitely return soon.
This restaurant has a very good view of the river. Ask for a table near the window. The lunch menu is not large but good quality and tasty. An excellent wine list. And the service couldn't be faulted.
Staff, quality of food, service, ambience, location
Lovely location, especially on a sunny day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious but the choices were a bit boring. We managed to find a couple of interesting dishes though and they were beautifully presented.
Food was very good, lovely new destination; we’ll definitely be back. Lee (the general manager) went above and beyond go make us feel welcome.
Easy going atmosphere, no problem that we were delayed and arrived 15 minutes late.
