Much as described below, except the barstools have gone, so we sat around one of the drinking tables on the shore side as all the riverside tables were occupied by families.  The interior is looking a bit worn, but the staff were pleasant and it was a good place to enjoy an overpriced meal.  No real ale still, so I went for the bottled W&E Guardsman; there were 4 of their beers in bottles.  It was nicer than it should have been, and certainly less noisy than the Tattershall Castle.

Moved to a temporary location yet giving great views of The London Eye,this is not the most elegant of craft but is available if you just want a drink.The outside decks will be popular in good weather ,but it was raining on my visit ,and I was asked where I would like to sit on ordering at the bar.Having said inside I was shown to a table and the cutlery and wine glasses were removed,but you just can't pitch down where you like because tables will be reserved for diners at peak dining times.There are a few stools and a small drinking shelf if all else fails.
The interior is upmarket in black velour with orange highlights,and the windows allow close inspection of activity on the river.There is no real ale and standard kegs from which I chose Windsor & Eton Republika.However looking at the drinks menu it appeared a better option may have been from a choice of W&E bottles.
Rather dull,not on the list for a revisit but might be better if looking for dining with a view.

Much the smaller of the two ships moored beside the Victoria Embankment, temporarily moved eastwards to lie in a rather awkward position partially underneath the Hungerford / Golden Jubilee Bridges to allow construction of the Thames Tideway Tunnel. Accessed by a ramp down and then steps up to the central dining room and bar, with seating out on the fore sun deck (with the aft one currently closed). No real ale, and just four keg taps offering two lagers - Kronenbourg 1664 and Windsor & Eton Republika (£5.50) - Guinness and Aspalls cider, but there are also several W&E bottled beers in the fridges.
