This 17th Century pub is one of the most atmospheric pubs in London. The entrance is tucked down a small alley-way and as you walk through the door you find yourself in a cosy bar. This wood-panelled room could not be more of an authentic reminder of London's past, the worn wooden bar with its traditional beer hand pumps add to the magic. The pub has been owned by Fuller's since the 19th century and the ale is brewed less than a mile away. The food is good, traditional pub grub with a slight hint of refinement such as steaks and pies.
The real glory of this pub is its location on the banks of the Thames. From the small interior the crowds spill out onto the riverside embankment. The views down the river are particulary magical on a summer's evening. The combination of a brilliantly preserved pub, which is unpretentious and serves good beer, with the fabulous views, make the Dove one of London's finest pubs.
