A group from work visited the Founders Arms for a Christmas lunch. The mains were tasty and cooked well but the Yorkshire puds were dry and there was far too much veg on the side (and I do mean way too much), which was very wasteful. We interacted with four members of staff, with three being very professional and friendly and one not really having much experience (she tried to send away a latecomer telling him she had no record of us being there and seemed baffled when some at the table asked for bread and small plates. One dessert was missed at first, with the same server saying there was no record it had been ordered. It took a supervisor/duty manager to come out and check their system to find the order and verify we did indeed order it (a diner was offered free ice cream due to this mix-up). Overall the experience was great and I would recommend this pub for the food, service, atmosphere and location. visited Founders Arms on 14 Dec 2016

Right on the river, my ideal drinking and dining spot. Everyone loves a view of the Thames and The Founders Arms delivers!

This is an excellent pub, the view is amazing, plus it's great if you're off to the Tate and want to grab a drink before or after.

I've been on a date here and it was great place for a date, order some delicious food without all the fancy pantsie fuss and have drinks on the terrace with the amazing view.

What a location! Set right on the thames with fantastic views over the City of London and st pauls, this is a great stop off when walking along the southbank. I love the cosy blankets they give you in the winter for those wanting to sit outside. A cracking london pub.
