As I’m sure you’ll expect, we have a few temporary new plans in place to keep everyone safe. In particular, our capacity will obviously be reduced for the time being.
Hopefully, they aren’t too much trouble and if we can all respect these measures, we should be able to enjoy the pub as much as possible.
In line with the guidance, we will be running table service only. Don’t worry, there will be lots of us around so you won’t have to wait!
Please would you wear a face covering while moving through the pub
The Maximum number of people per reservation will be 6
To allow as many people as possible to enjoy the pub, reservations will be for 2 hours
Payments will be by Card/Contactless Only
Children – we very much look forward to seeing families in the pub for lunch and 5:30pm dinner reservations. To maintain safety for all, we ask children to remain seated throughout your visit

Myself & my boyfriend were staying very close by for a few days so we went in at least 3 times . Each time the staff were absolutely lovely & we would definitely make it our local if we lived nearer. Highly recommend!

First time visitor. They had tasty food and smiling staff. We sat outside due to Covid considerations, heaters kept us warm. The only let down was cigarette smoke from another table. It felt a bit pricey, but then perhaps I'm not familiar with London costs. I'm likely to go back again.

The Dartmouth is the place to be in Hammersmith.
Going for dinner never felt as safe as I did here post lockdown.
The staff is really friendly and attentive. All following the COVID 19 rules.
I’ll be back for sure.
Also the food is always 10/10.
Well done DC

One of the best steaks we've ever had! The service was fantastic and they accommodated us very well considering we were rushing off to go to a show. Not the most palatial surroundings but the staff and food were perfectly fine.

Food was good and the service attentive. However, not a place to go if you have dietary restrictions - very little choice for vegans. The dietary menu was out of date and the staff weren't sure what was dairy free on the main menu. Otherwise, a good evening.

Conveniently located gastro pub in Hammersmith. It was a Friday evening so downstairs was quite noisy but we had a quieter table upstairs. The service was very good with a reasonable range of choices of both food and drink - the calamari was very good. Would go again.

Pre show meal before the Apollo - very convenient. Staff helpful and happy. We arrived before kitchen opened at 6 (Friday night) but dining room available above bar bustling with Friday crowd. The food is a cut above normal pub grub and is very tasty. Really enjoyed it and would recommend.

The food was outstanding. I have been to many gastropubs whose food has been a let down. This was special.
I'm only short of one star on service because we started quite late but no one told us that the kitchen closed at 2.30 so we couldn't have dessert. They did kindly let us have affogatos though, so they rescued the situation.
My Jerusalem artichoke soup was perfection. Value: I've had bills for four people higher than ours for nine here. It will be very difficult to get rid of me in future.

I really enjoyed my first visit to Dartmouth Castle and the food was fantastic. Our table was a very tight squeeze, we asked to move to the next table and the bartender/waiter told us the next table was a joint booking with the following table. When the guests for the next table arrived they were nothing to do with the other table, slightly disappointing to be blatantly lied to. Other than that we had a good pre-theatre meal and drink.

Thoroughly enjoyed my wild boar ragu and my partner loved her Italian sausage penne. We have struggled for years trying to find a pre-gig venue for dinner near the Apollo, but from now on I will choose the Dartmouth Castle every time, a lovely pub with fantastic food and friendly, efficient service.

Attractive, elderly pub, just beyond the hurly-burly of Hammersmith Broadway. Clean and well maintained, and, inside, lots of comfortably worn wooden fittings.
