This navy yacht-turned-restaurant permanently moored near Temple tube dates back to 1927, and its history is obvious as soon as you step on board, with several of the original features all still looking shipshape. While seafood might have been the obvious course for the menu to follow, veg-centric dishes are instead to the fore. Delicately assembled roasted aubergine is fashioned into something like a mille-feuille, mixing layers of crumbly rye bread with velvety aubergine and a smear of butternut squash purée. Elsewhere veg is used to equally good effect in the earthy mushrooms, steamed kale and shreds of parsnip crisps accompanying succulent chicken stuffed with melted red Cheddar, while pretty desserts include a fluffy cheesecake mousse. The bar serves up a great selection of G&Ts alongside wines and Champagne, and on-the-ball staff are attentive. With creaks from the hull coming from the rising and falling of the tide, there’s no escaping the fact you’re on a boat, but bring your sea legs and The Yacht is a relaxed and romantic setting.
