Visited on a summer Monday evening. The view on the river is fantastic & the interior is quite interesting. We had fried haloumi cheese with chips x3 and pork belly with roasted potatoes x1 accompanied by draught ESB & Doombar. Nothing looked fresh, fries were too dry, potatoes soaked in fat, meat was just OK. Hardly good value for nearly £10 or over £13 respectively. The beer had good temperature but came with a head that disappeared immediately. Waiter was friendly & trying although he was clumsy, touched glasses everywhere when serving & neglected personal hygiene. The place though half empty was very noisy thanks to sounds coming out of the kitchen & another waiter. A good stop for a pint with a river view but nothing else.


We went to the 'Prospect' after watching the Queen's Jubilee celebrations on the river Thames for a drink. Expecting the place to be in good spirits (as we were) we were certainly disappointed! The manager at this pub is extremely rude and so was his side kick blonde staff member.. service is appalling. Myself and my friends were spoken to so rudely and aggressively. I suppose because they are the 'oldest' pub on the river they think they can treat people however they like. This was my worst experience of a pub in London, and I have lived here my entire life. AWFUL, RUDE, DIRTY AND UNPROFESSIONAL!! DO NOT GO HERE!! There are so many nice traditional pubs in London, that treat you well, with respect, and value your money and custom. Do yourself a favour and spend your time and money elsewhere.
