Eat & Drink on the River Thames
Whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat or want to relax and enjoy a hearty meal, the River Thames is the place to go.
When the sun is shining, enjoy a relaxing drink overlooking stunning views of the river or enjoy afternoon tea in the open air. If the wind starts to bite, get cosy by a roaring fire in a riverside pub or have a gourmet treat in one of the many Michelin starred restaurants in the area. World class chefs are never far away and The Riverside Restaurant at the Macdonald Compleat Angler welcomed the distinguished Michael Lloyd as head chef in 2014.
Discover the boat houses turned into restaurants or cafes, such as the Beetle and Wedge Boathouse Restaurant, you can’t get closer to the river!
Pubs are also great places to enjoy live events. In timely fashion with the centenary of the Great War, The Plough Inn has a performance of TROUPERS which brings to life the amazingly audacious Concerts At The Front – a hitherto unsung war effort that’s full of guts, gusto and greasepaint.
