    The pub is divided into four areas: a riverside garden/terrace, a lounge bar, a gorgeous conservatory area, and the tiny front bar, which merits an entry in Guinness World Records.

    Good pub. Yes, very good pub. But head a few doors west to see the place where the Victorian Internet (AKA the telegraph) was invented, and William Morris lived.

    Come here to experience the 'smallest public bar room'

    Once Guinness world record holder for smallest bar in England, also a favourite of Graham Green and Ernest Hemingway - the latter as famed for his notorious drinking abilities as his literary prowess.

    The Dove has the smallest bar room in the world.

    A great little pub with an amazing little terrace on the Thames, fun staff and Live Irish music every Monday :) My best find in Hammersmith so far.

    Really great pub that cares enough to serve fever tree tonic. Great bloody maries

    Hemingway used to go there. The area around it doesn't look like what you would expect from Hammersmith. A nice place by the Thames

    Have a Pint and look out over the Thames. Love this place.

    This is not disabled friendly. The landlord claims that they have a licence preventing anyone with ANY restricted mobility from going anywhere other than being on the small floor by the door!

    Turn right immediately for a welcoming snug bar; the uk's smallest apparently!

    Don't have the linguini. It's rank.

    Beautiful old pub by the river with great views from the secluded beer garden. Great food and interesting range of beers including lager from Hawaii.

    If you can get a space on the terrace, you'll not regret it. It commands beautiful views of the Thames towards Richmond and Hammersmith.

    Best place to watch the Boat Race

  • Ross C.

    Great location overlooking the river (South-facing so lots of sun). Amazing food (better than an average pub) and a good selection of Fuller's beer (best beer in the world!)

    Ross Cook · March 27, 2012
  • Dan H.

    As recommended in the book Quiet London

    Sit on the outside terrace, especially if the weather is nice. Gets crowded so be in early

    Nice pub, friendly staff, no decaf :(

    Quaint little Fullers pub with a riverside terrace. Food looks ropey but nice place for a pint in the sun.
