Surely Kingston's summer pub of choice? It sits on the banks of the River Thames and offers lovely views over to Bushy Park and Kingston Bridge. It is right on the old tow-path too, so that you can stroll home in the direction of Surbiton and Ravens Ait easily and pleasantly. Large & on two levels, the beer is fairly priced and the atmosphere relaxed. A favourite place when I visit my home town.
Like other Samuel Smith's pubs in London and city centre's you think that you can't top it because of the location and the price. Right? Yes. You are right. This one might be a winner for around three months of the year though. It is a Samuel Smith pub with a riverside location. Yes, get two drinks from a pub for under a fiver beside the river Thames.
The Gazebo is a pub that seems more on a conservatory. It is more warm than you could think at first and it not too cold in winter in all honesty. The pub is not very deep and once you walk into the pub you are almost at the bar. It is more wide than it is deep and this is great for looking out over the river Thames in front of the pub.
The Gazebo is a great place for friends and a contemplative summer afternoon pint after a walk down the towpath. The beer is cheap but the wine is rather expensive a friend of mine discovered on a recent trip. Do sit upstairs if it is open, or outside on the towpath and feed the swans.
This bar/pub is right along the River Thames. It has a beautiful bacony and outside seating area, which is perfect for those lazy summer evenings! Inside there are large sofas upstairs and a poll table downstairs. This is a great place to start your night!

J'y ai passé des jours et des soirées dans ce pub au bord de la Tamise, entre 1992 et 1994, et ce n'était pas pour réviser mes leçons. Ce pub propose une très bonne bière (Samuel Smith), un intérieur chaleureux, une terrasse agréable en bord de Tamise, non loin d'un parc et d'une promenade, et il devient très festif et se remplit les week-ends et lors des soirées étudiantes dans la boîte de nuit qui la jouxte, c'est à dire 4 fois par semaine, les soirées étudiantes de Kingston étant fréquentes. Brefn, si vous passez dans le coin, donnez moi de ses nouvelles. J'y ai passé 2 des meilleures années de ma vie ;-)
Le plus agréable, en été en terrasse.
PS: j'ai encore souvenir des patrons, un peu grincheux quand ils voyaient les frenchies arriver qui allait encore foutre le bor mais finalement, je crois qu'on a participé à leur enrichissement lol.
Could not agree more with you on thisFor 8 months of the year this place is not all that great, but when the summer comes it becomes a very good place to have a beer with friends.
