A charming, much-loved pub with incredible history, The Dove has been a fixture of London life for centuries. Set right on the River Thames, it's the best pub in Hammersmith for great atmosphere, wonderful fresh food and, of course, a quenching pint of ale.

Lovely place for a pint in particular in the summer where you can sit outside by the river where I enjoyed my cigar. It is one of the oldest pub in London and inside you can breathe history and tradition.

We were meeting with family from abroad, and had chosen the pub for its location and history. It is lovely, being on the river, with its olde wooden charm. Similar to other reviewers, the table close to the toilets is unpleasant , it smells, we...More

Dear Fiona, I am sorry to hear about your disappointing experience with us. Unfortunately we have a strict policy of not taking any bookings outside. Firstly, with the unpredictable British weather and the very small space inside it would be really hard to find covered...More
