The Dove

Squaremeal Review of The Dove ?

Claiming to have the smallest bar in England, and possessing an upstairs room in which poet James Thomson wrote the words to Rule, Britannia!, this 17th-century riverside jewel comes soaked in history. The Dove is perched at the edge of the Thames in a charming stretch of Hammersmith. Its low-beamed interior is surprisingly spacious, and is augmented by a much fought-after waterside terrace. Well-kept Fuller’s ales are the drinks of choice, while food consists of hearty, upmarket pub grub: potted Gressingham duck with pickles, for instance, followed by a main course of wild salmon with herb mayonnaise, then banoffee cheesecake or summer pudding. Prices are moderate and service perfectly polite, but bear in mind the pub has a strict no under-18s policy, and there’s no disabled access to the toilets.

everytime we go there the atmosphere is always warm and inviting. the food is wonderful and like any pub located on the thames, expensive! you could spend all afternoon and evening in there and wonder where the time went. it can be a little frustrating when it gets very busy, but if you manage to get your own table near the fire.. its fantastic! always leave the dove feeling relaxed and as though money well spent!
