A historic riverside location
The Depot restaurant and all the offices at Tideway Yard, were originally stables and coach houses constructed in 1901. The high ceilings, white walls and exposed brick arches, linking the three main dining areas, create a light and airy ambience which is complemented by the well polished parquet flooring and rustic wooden furniture.
Points to note
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.
