Love this place! It's quirky being located underneath the foot bridge but that adds to its charm. There's seating in full sun and in the shade so great for a hot afternoon. Not a large place but definitely worth a visit for a refreshing beer or glass of wine.

Always crowded, sometimes play good music, good booze and offers a good view. Perfect place for Tete-a-Tete over drinks and drinks only.

They do not serve food. They only sell packaged nick-nacks like Pringles and wafers and cheese balls though. (At least that's been the case every time we have been here)

We love this place.

Great place for a drink when the sun is shining, great atmosphere and great music. Can watch the boats or people watch the hundreds walking along Southbank.

Wow - nachos burried in sour cream and guacamole. Yummy! Add great surroundings, friendly staff, an ice cold beer or Coke and there is no reason why you shouldn't go.

It was Sunday, packed on the "Island" but luck was with us, we got a table and two chairs, perfecto!

Ordered a jug of Pimms, wasn't bad, bit watered down but we totally enjoyed our hour sitting out there, watching the world go by.

Would absolutely recommend you stop by for a visit.

No food was available that day :(
