About the Pub

Famous grade II listed riverside tavern which was licensed by 1740 as the Doves Coffee House and bought by the brewery in 1796. Visited by a host of celebrities over the years, as attested by the list of names on one of the walls. The Scottish poet James Thompson used the pub as his local and may have composed Rule Britannia in an upstairs room. One of London's Real Heritage Pubs, the main bar area is on a raised level with a tiny public bar at the front. This also holds the Guinness world record for the smallest bar area at around 33 square feet. However, recent research suggests that this bar is not very ancient and was installed some time after 1911 by the then licensee who mistakenly thought his pub layout contravened the Licensing Consolidation Act of 1910 and hurriedly created the tiny snug. The likes of Dylan Thomas, Ernest Hemingway and Alec Guinness have enjoyed a pint or two of excellent beer here; fortunately for them they were all drinking after 7th January 1928 when the bars were waist-high in water. Now, we hope, the Thames Barrier will stop another inundation! The rear conservatory has a fruit bearing vine and leads to a terrace overlooking the Thames. Well worth a visit but often crowded in summer. Classic food with a twist is served every day; meals can take a little time to arrive at busy times but are worth the wait.
