Visited this pub in Nov 2018. Sadly no food on Sunday nights, but the beer was very good and the staff was super friendly.

We stopped here by chance walking around London. Waitress was really friendly polite and attentive. I had nice fish n chips (£12) and peas. The Mac and cheese was a hit too. And the beef burger.

Very enjoyable lunch after a tour of the Tower of London and a stroll across Tower Bridge. The staff was charming and very helpful and the food was quite good. Topped off with some tasty beers, it was such a welcome break from the tours!

You can have just beers downstairs or be served food upstairs. It’s very homey, quaint tables, velvet booths, floral carpet. The lager was fantastic and the sausage and mash made me feel like I’d stepped into old world London. It’s a little hidden and off...More

Didn't try the food, only stopped here for drinks. On the plus side, this is a bit of peace and quiet just off the very busy path by the Thames. On the negative side, you can see why it's not crowded - diffident service and...More

I would be surprised if not. I don't recall a children's menu as they will probably do scaled down versions of adult meals.
