A historic riverside location

You'll need to make an early reservation to secure a river view table. It's a perfect venue to watch the Boat Race which makes it an incredibly popular choice, so book well in-advance. During the summer, al fresco eating is popular in the secluded south-facing courtyard patio at the front of the restaurant.

The Depot is open until 11pm (10.30pm on Sundays). At weekends and in the evenings there plenty of off-street parking.
