“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”.

"Your partner Mark introduce himself and we had a great chat with my son, Mark about Roaring Meg Sauvignon Blance and by the end of lunch we had devoured two bottles! My son Mark spent two months in New Zealand last year and loves Roaring Meg Red Wine and now the Sauvignon Blanc! A wonderful restaurant right on the banks of the River Thames in Barnes. We got off to a wonderful start with delicious and very tasty hors d’oeuvres. The Quinoa Salad was superb as were the Small succulent Mussels. The main courses of Large Mussels, Roast Chicken and Sea Trout were perfectly cooked. All our deserts were scrumptious: perfect cooked pastry Crumble and Custard, also a dream like Cheesecake. The Frangipane Tart was out of this world. We asked to meet the Chef Gary and personally thank him for his superb cooking. Thee Service was very attentive throughout lunch and Peter, the Manager, was the consummate professional Manager of The Depot. We are very much looking forward to our next visit. Evan,"

"The Depot is on a roll. It's great value especially the set lunches but the whole place comes together so well - the whole is greater than the sum of the parts sort of thing. The recent refurb has made it much warmer and comfy and at night when you can't see the river it doesn't matter but a sunny day probably is the time to go. Wines are democratically priced and there are some attractive staff!"

"The depot has had a subtle refurbishment which one gradually realises is rather very tasteful and comfortable. Two recent visits have also strongly proved that this is a place where the food is a real winner. It was described by some as "never the main event". No longer. The dishes are a lot more adventurous and decidedly a promotion from near relegation to moving up a league. Still book early so you sit by the windows (no longer with a draught!) and enjoy the views. Service is more positive and friendly. The revamp has motivated the staff too. Lucky west Londoners."
