We ate at Christmas and had a lovely meal. Service top notch, food lovely, pretty setting by Thames. Will be interesting to see how new ownership affects standards/pricing.

This is a lovely place. Beautiful setting by the river, the staff are charming and always helpful and the food is simple and yet elegant and always delicious. It's great for a couples dinner or for bigger events. I attended a wedding reception there recently and the food was as good for 30 people as it is for two. Quite... More

Well this place is a little unassuming gem at the end of the high street in quiet little Barnes / Mortlake. The staff are lovely and friendly and super helpful. We had the oysters and mussels to start and they were just perfect. I can happily say that it carried over to the main, John Dory cooked to perfection. Met... More

Stopped for lunch at The Depot as it is on the Thames path and would let a well behaved couple and their dog in the bar area. Staff very polite and service was good. We had a mains dinner and a glass of beer/wine. Food was excellent and served very quickly. This was good for us as we had to... More

The food was adequate but service was mediocre. Staff were indifferent. Owing to the good reputation, lovely location we were looking forward to a Christmas treat. Unfortunately we found the service to be lacking in any care or interest in us. When asking for the service to be removed from the bill, one must have expected some response - none... More

Understand Rick Stein has bought the Depot which I have been going to for years - do hope he is not going to make too many changes to this favourite of mine. Had lunch with a girlfriend - food was great and the service (which I know can sometime be commented on) was excellent!

We were a private party of 60 for a reunion Sunday lunch. The food was excellent, fresh and hot - no mean feat for such a large party. My sea bream was perfectly cooked and my husbands beef rare as requested. The staff were pleasant and efficient. Not cheap but would return.

Superb dinner with friends.... Oysters delicious and plump, and my risotto with seabass and scallops was exceptional. Cote de boeuf tasty and cooked perfectly medium rare and the fishcake was fantastic too. Hasten to say that I didn't eat that lot on my own!! Highly recommended riverside restaurant 😃
