Met up with some friends for a private lunch in the upstairs function room. Starters were slow in arriving. Main course even slower, with a substantial delay between serving the first people and the last. The plates were not warmed, which meant that the food, which was tepid to start with, went unacceptably cold very quickly. The roast beef was... More

Always like the selection of beers at Doggett;s but the food has gone down hill. Any chef who thinks that microwaving an onion ring probably should not be a kitchen. The vegetables had been kept warm under and arc or something at they were dried out. Shame the food can be quick and alright.

Nice outside seating area near the river by Blackfriars bridge. Drinks selection pretty good and reasonably priced. Great for people watching. Didn't eat here, but food didn't look great.

We went for a day trip to London and went for a walk along the south bank looking for a traditional English pub to stop at for lunch & this was what we came across. Positioned on the Thames River right on Blackfriers Bridge, we had a great view of the river & city from our table at the window.... More

Visited on Friday 4th November to meet colleagues and ex-colleagues for a post work beer. Very much tourist oriented Nicholsons house with prices to match. Not a local boozer but OK if meeting friends and moving on elsewhere

In my humble opinion, nothing a pub can do can compare to the fish and chips found in a traditional chippy. But I have to say that Doggett's deliver a fantastic version of this classic British dish.

Great location and great service. Highly recommended for a drink by the river. Can be a challenge to get from the bar to the outside seating past all the tourists!

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood Profile
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
