We didn’t eat here but the service was exceptional and the prices of drinks were ok. Lovely pub right by Hampton Court Palace and near the river. Perfect to watch the world go by.

Not sure for whatever reason but you’re not allowed to be with a toddler in a stroller there for Sunday lunch.

Had dinner here with the boyfriend after a day out at Hampton Court. The food was excellent and staff were friendly. I had the lamb which was slightly overdone for my taste (but I thoroughly enjoyed it nevertheless) and my other half had a pie...More
