“One of the best pubs in London (arguably the best Sunday Roast). We HIGHLY recommend heading off a bit earlier, wandering along the banks of the Thames and then settling into a table (upstairs by the windows is a fantastic view whatever the weather) for a delicious meal. In summer you can sit outside and enjoy the view. We'd recommend you share the Quayside seafood platter to start, dive into mains (they are all good), but don't go past the sticky toffee pudding. Not just a restaurant the pub downstairs is friendly, cosy and has a great wine list, spirits selection and interesting beers on tap. ”

“You’ve probably checked it out when you picked up the keys. The Vanbrugh is super friendly, calm and relaxed. They do a great roast dinner on a Sunday and their a very reliable place to grab something to eat or a pint.”
