SquareMeal Review of The Blue Boat

These days, the launch of a brand new pub is as rare as a dead heat in the Boat Race – the annual varsity row-off that provides the inspiration behind this latest opening from local brewer Fuller’s. Set within a pricey Thames-side residential wharf redevelopment, The Blue Boat is a roomy venue decked out in 1920s Oxbridge undergrad attire. Well-kept Fuller’s draughts include Oliver’s Island, Frontier and London Pride. The pub opens daily from 10am for Anglo-American brunches, before offering an all-day menu that might start with Jerusalem artichoke soup or tuna tartare with avocado and chilli dressing. Main courses of laverbread ravioli, samphire and beurre blanc, or Provençal-style lamb rump might follow, then you can finish with classic sticky puddings or the cheeseboard. Easy-drinking wines cost from £19 – ideal sundowners to be sipped on the smart, sun-trap terrace with its river views. Such aspirational Thames-side living floats may locals’ boats.
