    Ancient Pub by the Thames. Perfect spot for a lazy summer afternoon. Far away from the tourist crowd, a beautiful little spot to spend your time.

    Amazing atmosphere, great view, wonderful staff and one of the best Sunday roasts in London! Well worth a visit and great spot to enjoy glass of wine outside on the terrace when the sun is out 😄

    Cosy, riverside pub with traditional food. A little further West than we'd like, but it's too gorgeous to miss.

    An amazing old pub with lots of history, the smallest bar in England, plenty space to sit inside or out, and good quality food. Always busy and vibrant.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!)

    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.

    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!

    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.
