A substantial pub with a high ceiling and generous sized furniture ,mostly traditional at the front either side of the front door,with a dedicated small restaurant area beyond the long bar to the rear.There is a side beer garden,but the highlight is the rear riverside terrace with great views over the Thames with the towpath weaving between the pub and this terrace.
It has a gastro feel but there is also a community feel with a weekly quiz and rowing events advertised,there was a friendly welcome.The food is from a short menu ,freshly prepared with mains starting around £14,my fish and chips were well executed.
There are 4 handpumps drawing a house Boaty Mc Boatface (provenance unknown) ,GK IPA and Sambrooks Scrumdown (good nick) with another clip reversed.Decent pub that I would return to for food,I suspect the ale range may lessen the attractions of targetting this pub for a major session.Nearest pub to Craven Cottage so the atmosphere may change on match days.

A return since my first visit back around 2004 with a local friend who stated that the pub has been refurbished around three times in his 11-year presence. This is a large pub (not a gastropub) with an acceptable makeover as is typical of this type or residential environment; the place is by no means easy to find unless you are looking for it and has a fine beer garden overlooking the Thames.
Efficient staff were conjuring up Hophead's Dark Star, Sambrook's Session, Bedlam's Benchmark and Johnny Haynes' Best - a round of three Dark Stars came in at a little under £12 which is very good value, especially for the relatively affluent area and all were on good form.
On the minus side, there was a bunch of 'posh' kids, the youngest of whom couldn't have been a day over 16 - they couldn't handle their booze and were picking each other up, larking around and bumping into punters. Worse still was another bunch of seemingly lost chavs who were certainly aggressive in the language department; small children cavorted just a few feet away.
This pub isn't too bad, but management needs to get a grip on the people it allows in; points docked accordingly.
I'd come again, but only because there's not much else around here that warrants investigation.

An impromptu visit here today having popped down to the Fulham FC shop to do a bit of Xmas shopping for my son only to find the shop closed as a match was still in progress and the shop closed until full time. Anyway a short walk upriver found me here for a welcome pint, the pub is a large L-shaped space with a black lacquered floor, standard height tables of varying sizes with chairs, small stools or towards the front leather banquettes. A bit of exposed brickwork, a couple of fireplaces and a red ceiling with whirring fans. Domestic style patterned lampshades above the bar counter of the type I'd expect to see if I time travelled back to 1967, an extensive wine list was presented on a chalkboard over the bar back. This is certainly a food oriented pub however at the time, presumably due to the Fulham game going on up the road, there was a basic menu in operation, consisting of burgers, chicken, scampi and a veggie option, all with chips and served in polystyrene trays. I can't imagine the pub's usual demographic being enamoured with this, I suspect it is a mixture of need's must and licensing issues (plastic glasses today). The normal menu is a bit more adventurous and certainly pricier, Christmas dinner is a mere £75 a head.
There is a huge side garden with extensive seating which must be great in summer, but the best views are from a smaller area to the rear with superb Thames views. This place must make a bomb in summer.
Good beer selection, the handpumps offered Doom Bar, GK Olde Trip, Itchen Valley Russian Stout and a gorgeous Sambrook's Powerhouse Porter, not my usual style but in very good nick.
I liked it in here, despite the plastic glasses today, I'd normally have stayed longer however suddenly the pub filled up indicating the final whistle had blown, back to Craven Cottage to queue for the shop.
