Here we go: sadly another example of a pub with self-righteous staff imagining themselves trade union leaders standing up for bureaucracy. Customers are a hassle. In an empty restaurant, my family are rejected to secondary seating away from our own choice due to the fact that we won't occupy all seats. Well good bye.

I've always loved this pub, which is a standard English pub -- don't expect to order too many exotic drinks here -- with a beautiful traditional interior, and a great patio outside with a view of the Thames and flower boxes.
