Lonely Planet review

Severely inundated by the epic floodwaters of 1928, this gem of a 17th-century Fuller's pub revels in historic charm and superb Thames views. Scottish poet James Thompson was reputedly inspired to write the lyrics to 'Rule Britannia' here in the 18th century, it was Graham Greene’s local, and Hemingway and Dylan Thomas drank here, too, while William Morris lived nearby.

To your right as you walk in is what was once listed as the smallest bar in London. If the sun comes out, fight for a spot on the lovely terrace (forget it on Boat Race day) and in winter, warm your toes by the open fire.
