Lonely Planet review

Set at the end of a pretty, cobbled street, this riverside pub has been seriously dolled up, but still manages to ooze history. Previously a local dockers pub, dating from the early 18th century, it is claimed that Lord Nelson had secret assignations with Lady Emma Hamilton here (hence the naming of the toilets).

Inside, the pub is mostly comprised of a dining area but there is a smaller room at the back as well as a terrace affording expansive views of the Thames. On a separate terrace, during summer months, the pub hosts the completely al fresco A Grelha, grilling up dazzlingly fresh fish from Billingsgate Market, just a few streets away, as well as Portuguese classics such as cataplana and estapada . Call ahead if the weather’s bad.
