Tamesis Dock

£25 and under
Tamesis is a colourful converted 1930’s Dutch barge permanently moored between Lambeth and Vauxhall Bridge. It is a walk-on neighbourhood bar, restaurant, live music and events space.

Offering stunning views of the Houses of Parliament, London Eye and Battersea Power Station, Tamesis offers generous indoor and outdoor space with a relaxed, fun and friendly personality.

Our pizzas are freshly made, hand stretched, long fermented and use a homemade tomato sauce with Fior di Latte. We offer a selection of meat, vegetarian, vegan, cauliflower crust pizzas and other options we hope that float your boat.

We offer a discounted lunchtime menu and cocktails, draft & a selection of wines and spirits.

Please note that the food is provided in a relaxed atmosphere and comes out when it is ready. As we have a small kitchen, should there be a rush, there might be a delay as everything is made fresh to order, however we hope the views and drinks will help to pass the time

I booked a table outside as I was meeting a friend and wanted to follow COVID rules. When we got there our table was inside?? The waitress said they allocate tables randomly, which especially in these times does not make sense to me.. anyway we waited 15 mins and got a table outside.
Food took 45 mins to come and was not worth the wait. The pizzas are dry and look like cheap oven pizzas, disappointing as the menu sounds so tasty.
Overall it’s a cool location and something different as it’s on a boat on the river. However in terms of food it’s very disappointing and service seemed a bit rude.

I’d asked of outdoor table for 6 with heating and shelter. Before attending I clarify this twice over the phone to ensure this, otherwise we would have gone somewhere else.

We were given only half a table, which we shared with another 6 people (not very COVID friendly). The table was fixed which meant it was about 1 metre away from the where some of my friends where sitting. This meat we had to eat on our lap. It was also done so we all had to sit in a line which wasn’t the best and there wasn’t any room for one of the group so we had to take turns standing up. Also there was no heaters which I was told there would be.

Some of the staff weren’t very friendly, and helpful when we ask for a chair for the person standing. This could have been because the restaurant was busy.

The pizza where really good and tasted great. However one of the pizzas we ordered was forgotten, which meant one of our party only got his pizza when everyone else had finished eating.

The vibe at Tamesis Dock is stunning. It was a perfect place to go to as our last pre-lockdown treat. We will revisit it when the site reopens in December (hopefully!). The drinks were great, the pizza was splendid, and everybody on the staff was so lovely. Tamesis Dock is a must, must, must (!) when you're in London.

Electric ambience with plenty of outdoor seating for multi-household groups. Disappointingly took 30 mins to get a served a drink with the waiter returning 25 mins after ordering to tell us they didn't have what we ordered. Prime location and pleasant experience but I'm just glad we weren't 1) in a rush or 2) thirsty.

This is a wonderful unique floating pub.... that provides great views of the Thames and the Houses of Parliament. It great being up on deck on a sunny day and equally cosy inside when the weather isn't so nice.
We enjoyed very nice vegetarian pizzas with our drinks. Friendly service.

Had a really lovely time here. Had to sit inside due to the poor weather but the staff were so nice and friendly. Quite reasonably priced too.
