Café
$$
“Open since 1954, the pub has a 114-cover ground floor restaurant, a 132-capacity club, and a 20-seat wine bar, plus two self-contained flats, and office, garden, and extra storage. It has developed a reputation as a host venue for stars including the first UK shows of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Jimi Hendrix, and other more modern acts such as Adele and Ed Sheeran. It also welcomed Rolling Stones bandmembers Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood, when they played a “secret” gig together there in 2013. SW5 9JA”

Italian Restaurant
$$$$
“Set back from the Thames Path, this Michelin-starred destination is not only a riverside icon but also one of the flag-bearers for provenance-led seasonal Italian cooking. Warm, buzzy and über-expensive (in a semi-casual way), it’s dedicated to serving unfussy yet stunning regional food based on top-drawer ingredients – salads, pastas and wood-roasted specialities are the headliners, all backed by fabulously expensive Italian wines.”

Speakeasy

“This is a unique place that looks like an old speakeasy with a detective theme. There is no sign outside the door, so it may be difficult to find, but that's part of the fun. Don't expect too much of the food, keep in mind that you are there for the unique experience and the cocktails!;)”

Movie Theater
“Great option for a rainy day, catch a film in what was The Forum Theatre in 1930, designed by architect J. Stanley Beard. Interiors have been modernised, and the Compton organ is long gone, but a fave of ours nonetheless.”
