Harden's says

Opened in September 2023, this mid-Victorian pub in Barnes with a balcony overlooking the Thames is now run by Patty & Bun owner Joe Grossman, who grew up nearby and has hired a top-class chef and management team to deliver something special. Look out for some snazzy snack in the bar downstairs and whole fish and steaks cooked over coals in the dining room upstairs.

Summary

Few pubs in London boast as fine a location as this riverside tavern, at the Thames-side end of Barnes High Street (and next to the also-picturesque Bull’s Head). Abandoned to pizza and brasserie chains in recent decades, it’s now to be relaunched as a passion project by Patty & Bun founder, Joe Grossmann; and with front of house from Simon Walsh, who filled the same role at Hammersmith’s excellent Anglesea Arms.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"The food and wine are nowhere near good enough for the prices being charged. Whilst some tables have a river view, the only way I could have a conversation was to shout like everyone else."
