The Dove is steeped in history. Since it first opened in the 17th century, this Hammersmith watering hole has garnered quite the name for its great atmosphere, cask ales, crowd-pleasing grub and cosy decor, as well as its riverside beer garden.

Searching for a place to eat near the Thames? Look no further than The Cutty Sark, a Greenwich gem and corker of a pub. Swing by as the sun is setting for a signature bitter and jaw-dropping panoramas across Canary Wharf.

Taking waterside dining to the next level, Darcie & May Green is bringing you delicious dishes onboard a stunning barge boat. Head over to the Paddington Basin haunt for a host of Australian-inspired bites (you must try their award-winning banana bread sandwiches) and summery cocktails.
