I remember, as a kid, cross backwards and forwards on the Humber when this was a ferry.

Anyways, we later saw him passing comments to every lady coming in or out. SO GO THERE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
It was this past Sunday, 19th Aug. And it was one of those rare warm (hot) days in London - it felt like Summer. And we had earlier decided not to just go to either the Heath or Primrose (something we usually do when it's actually hot in London) but to go into Soho. So we had lunch in Soho and then thought it would be nice to walk along the Thames. Then we saw Tattershall and said "hey, let's pop on the boat for a drink".
Luckily a couple had just left a table on the waterside so we grabbed it. One drink turned into several.
The staff here were really nice and quick at serving people on the deck. Only once did we go down below to order our drinks. They even had a frozen drink hut on the deck.
For most part, the crowd was decent. Tourists mainly but seemed like some Londoners as well and it was nice to sit and watch the boats run up and down the dirty Thames.
The only thing that sort of spoiled it was loud group of down under guys who must have been on their way to a Walkabout but got sidetracked. They were a noisy but thankfully our table was further away from them (some people left because of them but we stuck it out).
Overall, I'd say if it's sunny and it doesn't look too busy, a nice place to enjoy some drinks in the rare summer sun in the UK.
Oh and the drinks weren't that expensive.
Met up with a friend here last week for a few drinks after work and was pleasantly surprised to discover they've had a bit of a refurb inside since I was last on board! It looks a lot smarter now as the old decor was starting to look a bit tired and worn.
It does tend get to get busy and crowded a little later on in the evening so arrive early if you want a table. The large windows give excellent views across the Thames and of the London Eye, which is especially nice after dark.
A great venue during the summer months as it's lovely to sit out on the deck enjoying a drink or two in the sun! Average London bar prices - £5 for a large glass of wine.
Although the concept of a pub on a boat on the Thames overlooking some of London’s finest tourist attractions is a great idea I must say that this is not as cool as it could be thanks mainly down to its clientele…loud, brash, drunk city types.
Whilst I would obviously go back here on a nice summer’s day with work colleagues or otherwise I did find there to be some attitude around the place, a bit too much drunk behaviour, lots of broken glass and the quality of the drinks on offer definitely catered towards this.
All in all this is a missed opportunity and I couldn’t help thinking it would be a completely different ambience in an area like Wandsworth, Fulham or Putney.
Pretty good drinking place, well positioned for Whitehall and a great place to go for a few drinks after work on a sunny day in summer.
There are two bars on the top deck (open in nice weather) with plenty of tables and seating, and a couple of bars on the lower levels. Regular London prices can be found here with around £3.40 for a pint of Guinness.
Cool way to spend a few hours watching the comings and goings of the Thames and the London Eye creep round.On deck is best in the summer as said elsewhere but if you are downstairs it’s only worth it if you can get one of the large window seats just above river level.Foods always been quite good too.
We went here a couple of weekends ago on a cold wintery Saturday night. Possibly not the best night to pick but it seemed a nice idea at the time. It was very exicitng walking across the gang plank and down the stairs to the bar. There were no seats inside - too busy - but the windows were the whole height of the bar and gave a great view of the Thames. We headed upstairs and outside with our pricey drinks and froze to death upstairs looking over the Thames till it became too cold to stay any longer. There were heaters but not enough and not close enough to the tables. I think this is a night club as well. My advice: wait until Summer.
I have hired this venue for a special occassion. We had the lower deck of the boat & our own bar & the food supplied was really good. As part of the booking we also got discounted entry into the nightclub. The Tattershall castle has some beautiful views if you stay out on the deck to enjoy a beer. A funky place to enjoy a drink with friends, the only drawback is how the motion of the boat affects you aftera few drinks!!
it was few months back,me and couple of my mates from work went for a drink at this bar which happen to be a boat on the thames,the interior was lovely,good service and the staff were nice and courteous to all customers.

Templar, 9 July 2008:
A pub on a ship floating in the Thames is a good thing. Right across from the Eye, the views are great on a warm summer evening when the lights along the river come on. That gentle swaying may not be because you’re tipsy, either.
However, I think I liked this place better before its renovation, when it felt more like you were actually drinking on ship. If you go below deck now it’s like any other lounge bar in Soho with leather-covered stools and flat-screen TVs.
An interesting pub but so sad. I can remember the days when she was a Humber ferry and we could drink going across to Hull at 8am (If we wanted) and got stuck on sandbanks. Steamboat Stomps with Jazz bands and trips up the humber.
With a great engine to turn that wheel it is so sad she is moored on the Embankment.
This boat moored by Embankment (turn right from the station and about 3 boats along) is the perfect place to drink during the summer. Popular with tourists and Londoners alike, when the sun comes out you can appreciate being opposite the London Eye looking along the Thames in either direction at the wondrous views.
Drinks and food are cheap as well and it’s easy to take over a section should you wish to have yourself a party. Below deck is further space with comfy chairs where you can go if it rains or on those dark Winter nights when you want a simple place to take your mates.
I absolutley love this place. The first time I went down stairs in the boat my friends convinced me that we were sailing?! you can actually feel th boat moving underneath you so without standing ner the windonws, they had a goos case. The view from the windows is astounding, the lights and westminster look beautiful from there. The deck of the boat is also great in the summer, just to watch the water and feel the nice breeze. Suprisingly the music is motown, 60's and modern. It's such a classy looking place and they play fun music.
This is a bar on a ship...or ship on a bar, not quite sure. It's a semi-permanently docked ship right on the Embankment. Average beer selection but nice to be able to sit outside with such a nice view. The gentle sway of the ship on the Thames is a bit disconcerting at first but is quite pleasant as the night goes on. The men's room was wet, very wet. I don't want to know why. Staff were a bit surly and disinterested.
