See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Although much altered, this large pub backing on to the Thames can trace its history back to the 13th Century and was once used as a hunting lodge by Henry VIII. The interior has a more modern feel with black flag stones around the bar areas and wooden floors in the seating areas. The long seating area at the rear leads to a raised restaurant area. Outside, drinkers can sit on benches by the riverside which overlook the suspended footbridge to Thames Ditton Island. The changing beer can be from Greene King or other brewers including local ones. Local artists sell their canvasses which are displayed on the walls. Two function rooms for hire. There is also an outside bar used in the summer, but also available for hire. Disabled access is via a lift adjacent to the main entrance on the river side of the pub. Live music every Friday.
