About: This riverside pub is in the Guinness Book of Records for having the smallest bar in Britain. It serves highly recommended food and beer, and is very popular because of this. The dining area can be found at the rear, and beyond that is a conservatory. The outside terrace is a great spot for viewing the University Boat Race.

Went to this beautiful looking pub on the river but turned out to be a disaster. The waitress was unfriendly. We ordered drinks and food upon arrival but the beers took 15 minutes to arrive. The barman seemingly did not get the ticket order. We had to ask the waitress 3 times for the drinks. The food was the worst part. The fish & chips meal: chips were fine, but the fish was the definition of insipid and the mushy peas looked like they had been left out for too long before being served. The canelloni was definitely microwaved and at 10.50 I expected more than that. When I asked the waitress if it was cooked on site or microwaved from frozen (which it evidently was) she obviously lied. Then the managed came to ask if there was a problem, but didn't do anything about it. We just left the food, finished our drinks and tried to enjoy the view. But I would not be going back there and I do not recommend this place. Tacky and cheap.

This is a charming historic pub where Charles II and Nell Gwyn supposedly met. It has a roaring fire, river terrace views, and friendly service. A marvellous and atmospheric place for a drink, and should be a shoo-in for every West London tourist. But they need to be warned that it is absolutely not a place to eat. The sandwich I ordered, costing an eye-watering 6.95 was almost inedible, and although starving I left most of it. It was filled with school dinner tough leathery beef in gravy, clapped in slices of door-stop bread, and accompanied by chips fried in unpleasant tasting oil.
