Square Meal Review of The Depot ?

A bewitching location, perched above the riverbank with a panoramic view of the Thames, is the primary reason for visiting this well-established brasserie. The room itself, all wood & cream, is fairly plain, allowing diners & drinkers to appreciate the picture windows. It’s a comfortable, if well-worn place to linger, & the service, both welcoming & solicitous (unless under pressure from parties), makes for a relaxing meal. The kitchen has its ups & downs – the trick is to order simple dishes. Tuna carpaccio with soy & ginger is likely to be more successful than a rather over-complicated dish of serrano ham, pork crackling, soft-boiled egg & green beans. Conscious of their target market, staff tend to be great with children; weekend lunchtimes see families predominate. Overall ‘this place deserves recognition for consistency & warm hospitality’, says a typical devotee.

    Cooksister :: The Depot, Barnes – 25 years and counting

    The Depot is situated on the banks of the River Thames, not far from Barnes Bridge, in a pretty restored Victorian courtyard. Constructed in 1901, the buildings which currently house The Depot restaurant were originally the stables and coach houses for the Barnes Council refuse depot. During World War 2 the corner occupied by The Depot served as a barracks for air raid wardens and their tin helmets were still hanging there in 1983! By 1981 the Council had no further use for any of the buildings and proposed to demolish the whole site and leave it as an open space. Local residents protested and competition for local architects/developers was held, with a brief to keep the best of the existing buildings, to include some new housing and to provide space for small new businesses to start and flourish. The competition winner, chosen by the local residents, was Gillian Harwood and her architect partner Philip Lancashire, who still own the building and the restaurant. We were lucky enough to have Gillian and Philip join our table when we recently visited and a more interesting, engaging and charming pair you could hardly hope to meet...
