Stunning old pub, beautifully old looking inside, with riverside terrace

A classic riverside pub and very well worth exploring,despite it's ownership by Greene King with all that brings.You enter into a flagstoned interior with two bay windows and some high tables but also benches.The wooden beams give plenty of character,while beyond the bar there is a fine fireplace (unused) with some traditional furniture giving great river views.A little further on there is a raised section ,again with wonderful views and this would be my prefered vantage point,with a great set of windows.There is a courtyard with wooden benches for outside drinking described as the Garden.
However it is worth exploring the first floor with a calm Pepys Room to the front,and the Smugglers Bar to the rear ,both rooms with good wood panelling.Walk through the Smugglers (bar only occasionally used here and can be hired) to get to the Lookout with the best exterior river views and much quieter than the lower courtyard.
Sadly the food is from a corporate GK menu and when a waiting time of 45 mins was stated suddenly I lost my appetite.Mindless muzak was playing and the bar staff weren't serving in order of time spent waiting.
The bar offered GK IPA and Abbott but guests Twickenham Redhead,Truman Swift,ELB Pearly Queen London Porter and Black Sheep Bitter (decent) ,a better range than I was expecting and this would mean that this historic pub is most certainly worth a revisit.

It was good to visit this pub when it was quiet, so a good look around the upstairs rooms and all around the downstairs was interesting. Six pumps, all in action on our visit, We went for the Trumans Zephyr and Blindside, which were both a good choice. Lots of interesting features in this pub, so well worth a visit.
