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.
