    A cleverly constructed menu, well executed. Our server (David?) was extremely helpful with a pleasant attitude. Prices were, in my opinion somewhat ambitious. A 'child's' portion of chips st £3.50 eas jusysilly! Nice view of the river.

    Good tea, excellent somewhat theatrical service, pie excellent, sandwiches and cakes good, could have been one more savoury type but made up for by pie. Good value

    We were a party of six and all had the set menu. The ambience was very nice, intimate and quiet. This was my second time. The food always has a sophisticated twist to it, using fresh ingredients. We were sat close to the big windows so you can see River Thames which was quite relaxing. Service was great but probably the best thing was the food and also the value for money. I love House so much and really enjoyed both my first and second visit.

    Excellent experience. We ate from the set menu which was extremely good value. Delicious and unusual salads and main dishes.
    Good wine and helpful but unobtrusive service. Space between tables means you can chat freely. We were dining late but did not feel pressured to hurry our meal.
