Had lunch for 2 on the floating pontoon over the water, spectacular spot watching the kayakers and the river life come and go. Which would have been great in itself, fabulous actually, but the staff, and the manager especially, made it a truly memorable experience. She set the tone for the whole atmosphere, found places for people to finish up their drinks if the table was needed back, generally kept the vibe alive and people happy. Not sure there's anything else you can ask for! Outstanding.

We went the first week that the terrace reopened and had a gorgeous evening. Fantastic buzz to the place, great selection of beers, and the loveliest staff. It's a great spot by the river, and the lights and heaters make it a joy to be outside even when it's a bit chilly. Menu is pretty small and simple, but tasty stuff and good value. We'll definitely be back.

Excellent service, very friendly and the right amount of attentiveness. Great covid measures, it felt really well organised and safe.
Food and drinks both really tasty - but perhaps a tad pricey but I suppose that's london.
Great ambience, would go again. Compared to bar 90 next door grow is leaps and bounds ahead in service and general vibes.

They were challenged. We were seated in a corner, by a drain/sink, and the ground was green with moss(?) and wet. It wasn't pleasant.

They had no GF options--server said that upon re-opening they were no longer offering that option. The server was very very nice, but he was alone. Ordering through deliveroo was odd. Hard to locate the menu/clickable items. And, I guess they were busy/didn't have enough supplies, as they ran out of food.

They had a one-way system and clear mask-wearing rules, which was great.
