  • Time Out London

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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!)
