My husband and I treated my friend to a birthday lunch and really enjoyed it. Lovely views across the river, lovely staff and a nice varied lunch menu. We arrived early but were welcomed into the bar for a drink. I had halloumi to start and the vegetarian tart for mains - really tasty! My crumble for dessert wasn't the best sadly but I didn't leave any 😊 They put a little (battery operated due to health & safety) candle on my friend's dessert plate - nice touch x visited The Tattershall Castle on 12 Oct 2016

The service wasn't the best, not very attentive at all. Food was sub-standard too. Shame as its such a great venue/location. Maybe okay if you're just going for drinks and not food visited The Tattershall Castle on 09 Oct 2016

I booked a table here last week and was there in good time. A table had been reserved by the window but as people had been allowed to sit there we assumed they would be leaving shortly and we sat nearby and had a drink whilst waiting. We were then disappointed to watch the waitress move our reserved sign to a small table in a darker area away from the window and without a view of the water. We decided not to eat there after all and to find somewhere else. In my view, if you bother to book ahead your reservation should be honoured and shouldn't be 'demoted' . .....the white wine was pretty awful anyway. ...

Im leaving a poor rating due to the one of the most unpleasant experiences ive had in terms of service. 3rd visit to this place but sadly the last. Sunday roast which was a let down due to a grumpy, rude and simply distasteful bar tender who was clearly frustrated for unknown reasons. She snapped at all and sundry and approaching her was a nightmare. Clearly these guys don't know the damage such poor service is doing to their reputation. Guess they seem to be OK leaving it in "Tatters"! Pankaj visited The Tattershall Castle on 25 Sep 2016

I booked here for a re-union because it was large enough to cope and a trendy venue to boot. The management reserved an area downstairs for us, however the weather was still good so we literally spend all our time up on the deck. Totally fantastic time and many plaudits my way for organising here.

We were very impressed with Tattershall Castle! I'd booked a table of 14 which later became 15 for my birthday and they made everything easy and brilliant! Food was served on the dot of 8pm when they said they would, servers were very polite and helpful, and the food was actually really excellent. Everyone was impressed, and the portion sizes were really generous so no one went away hungry! Thanks for a great night! Bethany visited The Tattershall Castle on 09 Sep 2016

We went to the Tattershall Castle for our work summer party this week. The open air bar upstairs is amazing, you can see the iconic London sights while enjoying some lovely drinks on the boat. We booked a cocktail masterclass there and it couldn't have been better. Mowgli, our superstar cocktail master was amazing, superpatient (considering that we were 11 very chatty people) and nonetheless smashing that cocktail making. The overall service was 10/10 and I would definitely recommend the experience to anyone looking for a great time on the river!!

This is my second time here and I returned because I really enjoyed it but I have to say they outdid themselves again! I asked for a table by the window and it was fabulous view! I simple love this place...great service ....great food.......great prices....great location! We were a party of 10 and everyone loved everything! I will reccomend it to anyone I know going to London....keep up the great work and I will return!!! P.S. The waiters and waitresses are exceptional!!!

Our company has had 2 functions within a week and each time we were impressed by the superb service, gracious, accommodating staff, good food and wonderful venue. Go for drinks, stay for dinner or snacks finish with dancing! Location is perfect for transport right across from Embankment tube station!

we have been to The Tattershall Castle for a few years now, coming down for my birthday in August and sometimes around Christmas time. We have always been extremely pleased with the excellent service, lovely surroundings, excellent food and good value for money. highly recommended

This place was great, the setting was brilliant and the staff were particularly amazing. We had booked from 12 - 2pm with a hen party and needed to play some games without disturbing the other guests and they were vey accommodating. They also tried to help as much as possible with our other random requests. I wish we had stayed there all day now. Best service ever :)

Great service all the way at, the Tatty Castle. My booking went from 4 to 8 to 11 and they accommodated us without a hiccup. This is such a gem I am hesitant to share it, but the staff deserve all the praise they get. Great food, great beer. Have been many times and will go again and again as long as it keeps floating.

Amazing night on New years Eve ... staff are all wonderful & Excellent couldn't say anything more but wow the view of the fireworks really in front of you staff are very helpful in directions of the place ... again Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. ... Ramon visited The Tattershall Castle on 31 Dec 2015

Excellent, thank you! No better place to see the Fireworks from. Having Gold tickets meant that we could retire to the Bridge at any time to relax. Only possible improvement would be to make the Bridge windows into opening windows :-))) Staff were excellent. serog1 visited The Tattershall Castle on 31 Dec 2015

The boat is lovely and the decor feels very homely and comfortable. I really enjoyed my evening however my friend found a piece of hair in her food and other guest had to send back their food as it came out really cold. I think towards Christmas time the number of staff working was very low which made the service very slow however the waitress and bar service were very friendly. I would return again but there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to get it to a good standard. Which is a bit shocking as this venue is in the heart of central London and expected a great deal more. tasha_1 visited The Tattershall Castle on 22 Dec 2015

we had a Sunday roast at the Tattershall and thoroughly enjoyed it, the service was very good and the staff made us feel very welcome. would recommend it. if you want a seat with a view of the river it is worth booking a table beforehand. marych visited The Tattershall Castle on 13 Dec 2015

Food good not expensive for the time of year. Service was slow considering we had preordered but staff was extremely helpful in getting our order processed. Definitely go back again. julietweller visited The Tattershall Castle on 05 Dec 2015

Hosted a surprise 30th birthday here in their lounge room on Saturday. Had a few issues with randoms walking down into the room so it's not "secure" in that sense - but the staff treated us well and were helpful and there was lots of room for the 45-50 people who came. The food is VERY pricey for what it is but tasted pretty good. I think they need to put a rope or something up if hosting events in the lounge (or a least a "private party" sign and they also need to revise the prices of their food. Other than that we had a great time and you'll struggle to get as good a location for the hire price elsewhere in London!

We live in the Midlands & we always make a point of visiting the Tattershall Castle every time we're in London.The food is excellent,the staff are excellent,the location is excellent.

Great for drinks, view, music. Food not so much. My steak was cold, chips were cold and old, waitress split meat juices on my lap when she put the board down. My partner and his daughter had overcooked tuna. The waitress messed up the order and forgot to order one salad. We asked for anchovies on the side and they came mixed in. We had to call a waitress to get more drinks as we had waited so long. Finally we ordered two cappuccinos and got two cold lattes! Needless to say, we didn't leave a tip - they even knew it was my birthday and I got nothing, no recognition. Another table was also complaining. All the staff were hanging around the bar and playing with hen party straws (I'll leave that to your imagination) I would recommend the bread and olives though! Shame, it was supposed to be a special meal - next time I'll stick to drinks and eat next door. Merilea visited The Tattershall Castle on 13 Sep 2015

Lovely Friendly Staff, Very Nice presentable food, Best views, POSH NOSH, Best place to have a party or family get together. On top the prices are very nominal. Will definitely be back. Thanks

Awesome night, awesome people & comedy was great, would love to see more. Wish the boat actually went somewhere though and the drinks aren't as cheap as the website makes out.

We have been spending the entire night on the quarterdeck, enjoying some amazing beers and watching the time pass away. Politics, religion, were the match of the night, but guess what, jack white and his joke on NYE mac's retail store culminate the entire serenade. Oh well, pankers wanker bankers you name it. They were in the storm of fun widely spread remarks on the night. Wish you a good one, peeps.

I love this place, great views over the river and real novelty for a night out in london. Well worth a visit.
