About

With panoramic views of the River Thames, The Mitre Hotel, Hampton Court offers the perfect setting to enjoy a tasty meal, be it a relaxed affair with friends or a special occasion with a loved one. Be prepared for delicious summer dishes with organic, homegrown and wherever possible, locally sourced ingredients. Our menu is inspired by the fact our front door is literally on the riverside. The team balances its natural creativity with a superb range of cosmopolitan yet comfort food, including vegan and vegetarian dishes. No wonder it’s one of the most popular restaurants in Hampton Court. Even without the dreamy Thameside setting, this is the sort of restaurant everyone wishes they had at the end of their road: a characterful, idyllic eatery. Classic dishes cooked to perfection – that’s what we serve at our Riverside Brasserie. The breath-taking river view at The Mitre Hotel, Hampton Court is truly the icing on the cake, especially at sunset.

The food was indifferent. The staff didn't know what they were doing. One doesn't chill red wine. Our half bottle of wine left over in the fridge disappeared. All in all a VERY disappointing experience!!!!!

This was one of the worst dining experiences we have had. Not only were the tables sticky, no table cloths provided but the windows appeared not to have been cleaned for generations. The amount of spiders made it impossible to enjoy the meal.
The state of the hotel was deplorable, the upstairs restaurant area was in a mess. This place is in desperate need of complete refurbishment. Given the prime location of The Mitre its condition is deplorable.
In its present state it should be inspected by the authorities.

Booked for evening meal. No need to as we were the only ones in the restaurant.
The view overlooking the Thames was amazing.
The food was simply fantastic so fresh and tasty.

Service by 20-somethings left much to be desired in terms of attentiveness, efficiency and speed. We shared the pork terrine to start and it was fine. I asked for the vegetarian plate to be modified, switching to pasta from gnocchi, which the chef did. The dish, however, lacked flavour. My companion had the spare ribs and chips. The ribs in the center were better than the ends. The chips were average.
The view, however, is what you go for, which is what most reviewers agree on. So adjust your expectations.

Lovely to be able to moor the boat and then enjoy a relaxed Sunday lunch on the terrace overlooking the River Thames. The service was excellent and food good value but from a limited choice.

The place is looking very tired and could do with a face lift. Food was very average and not much other than burger, chicken burger or hot dog with chips!!!! £11 + sides +drinks. Location is nice and the service was good and quick although it was very quiet for a saturday afyernoon.

Being a very hot day there were long queues at the bar , the staff couldn't cope with the extra influx of guests , who only wanted a drink .As a result they completely ignored the guests who had booked tables much in advance for lunch. We were seated at our table where it was completely deserted. Later one family arrived. They virtually forgot us.
STAFF MUST BE TRAINED TO WORK UNDER PRESSURE. The only good aspect of this place is the view , as the food is mediocre and few dishes were not available to order as they ran out . . The attitude of the waitress was also very rude as if to say we are busy go somewhere else!
Not a good experience at all .Would not recommend or even revisit.

I was given a voucher for a gift, if I hadn't, I would have left after waiting so long to be served. This restaurant is part of a hotel on the river at Hampton Court, so it's an attraction to sit by the river on the sunny Saturday we were there. When we arrived the barman looked harassed and the other mainly male staff just looked confused and overwhelmed. There were already people complaining about their drinks orders at the bar when we arrived, not a good sign. We arrived at 1.30 and left at 4. Some staff were making a good act of looking busy but actually weren't doing anything except carrying empty trays. If the majority of staff had better training then I might go back as the location is great and the food is also good which is a shame as the majority of the front of house let's the side down.

Booked a table here for Easter Sunday. Was seated quickly and given a menu (only 3 tables were taken so the restaurant wasn’t busy) but then completely ignored by the waitress for 30mins - no drinks or food order taken in this time and she was spending time clearing and setting tables We just up and left. Do not go if you are looking for good service.

Food very good
Service good
Ambience let down by ageing decor, dirty carpets and overall pub feel if the place . Wonderful views of the river that could be so much more romantic
