Few restaurants match the Wharf when it comes to wonderful food served in an unrivalled location. The former home of the historic Tough’s Boatyard, it is set beside Teddington Lock and on a summer’s day the view is hard to beat – even on a stretch of the Thames renowned for its beauty. It is a sought after destination and the local place where families gather to celebrate or enjoy a relaxed drink and a light bite.
The food has been delighting diners for the last twenty years. It is stripped down, honest, modern British cooking. The menu focuses on seasonal produce and the innovative cuisine draws its inspiration from local suppliers of responsibly sourced produce. The food is inspired by British and European classics with a vibrant Asian twist. Firm favourites include a classic Moules Mariniere, golden Rotisserie chicken, exceptional lobster with creamy mac and cheese and mouth-watering grills.
Irresistible bar snacks accompany an excellent gin menu, and the list of thirst quenching cocktails doesn’t disappoint. Every Wednesday and Thursday, guests will also enjoy live jazz piano between 8-11pm. The international wine and champagne list provides something to suit every palate and budget.
Another great feature of the Wharf is the diet-busting afternoon tea served with or without a glass of fizz, a range of teas, finger sandwiches, homemade scones, clotted cream and a superb selection of seasonal cakes and pastries created by the team in the kitchen.
