SquareMeal Review of The Grapes

"GOOD"

With ‘not a straight floor, and hardly a straight line’ in its whole constitution (as Dickens put it in Our Mutual Friend), The Grapes has ‘olde-worlde’ charm in spades (as Dickens didn’t put it). It’s a real pleasure to introduce friends and out-of-town visitors to this diminutive and refreshingly child- and telly-free riverside boozer – a matchless, vintage ‘London’ setting for a pint (Adnams Bitter, Landlord or London Glory, say) or a glass of wine and a lunchtime sarnie. Bar meals of devilled whitebait, curry or prawn salad are served downstairs, with classic grills and old-school seafood dishes on the menu in the petite fish restaurant upstairs (think dressed crab, potted shrimps, whole plaice and so on). One for the traditionalists.

24 April 2014

Three of us ate here on 22nd April 2014. The whole place is very small – don't go in a big crowd. The dining room upstairs has 6/7 tables for about 20 covers. It's small and intimate. Perfect for a small group. There is a great view over the river. Between us we ate smoked trout and horseradish and some sort of beef carpaccio for starters which was really nice. Mains were steak and chips ('best steak ever") and salmon on ginger mash and sea bass. Sides have to be ordered seperately, which adds considerable to the bill. It's not a cheap pub-grub place. We spent about £120 for three of us, one bottle of wine and no deserts. The waitress was lovely and very good at her job and I loved that decoration of the room – good art and good tableclothes. Overall impression: It was good. Might go again if a friend from out-of-town wanted to, but probably wouldn't be bothered for myself.
