The Dove reviews

Probably the worst pub experience I have had. We waited for an hour and fifty minutes for our food. We were told three times that our food was on its way. When we asked for some bread to stave off our hunger pangs, we were told they could not serve bread. In the end, we paid for our drinks and left without seeing any sign of our food. The toilets were disgusting and the service is terrible. What a shame, as the location is fabulous. I'm a local and I can't wait for someone to take over this public house and provide a standard this setting deserves. 0 out of 10.

Adore the pub and history, small and cosy - love it. Loos HAVE GOT to be dealt with as appalling! This was my first visit! Hope kitchen and loos will be dealt with at same time.

A fabulous location and OK food. We went there on a Monday lunchtime - not exactly rush hour - and the service was poor. Worst bit though, was the loos. No paper, no light, no plughole, no soap, hand drier not working. Think about that. How are people (including staff) washing their hands?!

Magnificent pub in the real sense. Good beer too. Some say it gets too busy, but I've always found a quiet corner in an afternoon.

A very nice place to spend a summer's evening outside or a winter's evening by the fire. The food is very good too and the atmosphere great. Well worth a visit.

Lovely place - perfect to sit outside on a warm day and great history and ambience. Food's good too.

Very historic little pub - lovely setting on the Thames and olde worlde feel. Difficult to get a seat for food though.

General boozer which is great in the summer as it's usually packed and therefore has a good atmosphere. You can sit or stand outside on the nice pedestrian riverside-walk near Hammersmith Bridge with the young crowd enjoying your drink and the sun.
