About

If you are in Hammersmith and feel the need to relax by the river, The Dove is a great place to try. The terrace overlooking the river is a favourite spot for local drinkers, and there is even a conservatory-style section in the dining rooms so you can enjoy the beautiful views even if the weather is ugly. If that wasn’t enough to tempt you, this 18th-century pub has also played host to various famous Londoners. According to legend, James Thompson wrote the words to Rule, Britannia here, and William Morris is said to have ordered an ale or three at this establishment. History, a good view and great beer.

The brownie and ice cream was served on a plate coated with carmel and crunch toffee - picture perfect. There are 3 rooms to pick from - dark old bar with small tables, an indoor dining room with... more

This iconic riverside pub is between Chiswick and Hammersmith and quickly became one of my favourite traditional pubs. The whole set up is nice and the pub has an amazing atmosphere. They've got a full bar and they're not too expensive considering the location. You can sit outside and enjoy the river view but also inside close to the fire place. It does get crowded especially for the Sunday... more

Beautiful pub on the banks of river Thames with serene, lazy water views. It's completely non touristy and off-the-grid and we decided to bring in the husband's birthday here.

Go early if you want to snag a table outdoors and enjoy the calm views of the Thames. They don't take reservations for outside - we reached around 6.30 pm and were able to snag the only table available. *what luck***... more
