The Dove †
The Dove may be small but it's one of London's best loved riverside taverns. This charming 17th century inn is tucked away down a tiny alley and features the world's smallest snug bar - to the right of the bar as you walk in. Inside it you'll see the brass plaque that marks the height the waters reached in the great flood of 1928. At the back, the picturesque conservatory is covered with creepers and is a popular place to watch the famous Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race when they remove all the furniture to give as many people as possible a good view of the race. Former regulars include the poet James Thomson who lived upstairs and wrote 'Rule, Brittania!' in the bar. Traditional pub food has been replaced with a more aspirational menu of rabbit and bacon pie, bangers and bubble and squeak, roasted squash salad, and battered haddock. Sit by the fireside and lap up the riverside views at this charming, historic spot.
