Riverside pubs in London: Time Out rounds up the best

Posted at 12:30 pm, October 1, 2011 in Food & Drink

If you’re looking for the perfect place to enjoy one of autumns sunnier afternoons with a pint or two, then you’ll appreciate our round up of the best riverside pubs in London. Start out in Wapping at the historic Prospect of Whitby which dates back to 1520 and claims to be the city’s oldest riverside pub. Stroll along the river to Limehouse to Gordon Ramsay’s enterprise The Narrow, slightly lacking in local charm but with nice views and good British food. Meander over Docklands to Coldharbour ‘s Grade II listed Gun which boasts a bank of interesting ales and a terrific terrace. Next stop: Hammersmith’s Dove, accessible via the riverfront or a tiny alleyway, where punters spill onto the riverside pathway to enjoy a pint with a view. The vast Victorian Crabtree on residential Rainville Road, W6 offers a superb menu. Last but not least (if you’re still standing), we have Kingston’s Boaters Inn, perched on a quiet stretch of river where you can sip local ales whilst watching rowers and kayakers glide by.
