    Great service until it got busy then it took a little too long to bring the card machine to pay.

    Very impressed with the courses, sparkling wine, and the cocktails.

    Excellent food and service. Good restaurant festival price! Good view across the Thames, but only for a few tables.
    Venue itself is 70's concrety: has its charms, but can't be described as cosy!

    Always love eating at House. Totally reliable. Started with crayfish tails followed by a plump and juicy skate wing. My wife had Burrato & tomatoes followed by sea trout. Perfect.
