Summary

“Lovely views of the Thames”, especially from the new riverside seating area (“definitely a success”), are the main attraction at this “very popular” Barnes haunt; the food may not be the main point, but fans insist it’s “getting better”.

Summary

“Perfect, if you get a table by the river” – this “spacious” and “informal” Barnes haunt can be “magical when the sun sets”, and is a major family favourite at weekends; the food’s never been the main event, but is currently on something of a high.

Reviewed 7 months, 7 days ago

"The depot has had a refit and the interior is decidedly more comfortable and attractive to look at. The food has improved overall and maybe the service is a tad better. A warm summers day is the time to go and sit at a window table to look at the Thames and its boats. The meals aren't the main draw but all in all it never disappoints."
