An utter rip-off: they add a "service charge" to your food bill with no verbal warning first, just very small smallprint that very few people will read.. Pay your staff properly: this is the UK, not the USA and people shouldn't have to rely on tips. And they wouldn't remove this charge when asked. It's not like service was actually good: the staff didn't come over very often, we had to keep calling them.
Food is allegedly upmarket: no, it isn't. Just because you made it yourself, doesn't mean that it's better than M&B or any other chain. It's average at best and anyone with a couple of Home Economics lessons behind them can prepare better food.
Beer was average, but little choice. You would get a better pint in Wetherspoons for half the price. Staff wouldn't know a decent wine if it smacked them in the face. I wouldn't go back if you paid me. I would rate it zero, but BITE's scale only goes down to one.
Oh yes, and the toilets were disgusting.
Yes, it's by the river and the view is OK. But it's far too expensive for what it is. Caveat emptor.

Disappointing... had three pints, first two had to be changed because they were undrinkable, third just wasn't nice. Disinterested staff, couldn't cope with crowds. No food available - "ordering system couldn't cope"

Classic riverside pub on the Hammersmith Riverside. Now taken over by Hippo Inns -- we shall see how that goes as they have been good for pubs in other places, but nowhere so busy or well-frequented perhaps.

Was back in the Blue Anchor after a couple of years on Thursday evening. The pub along with the neighbouring Rutland Arms has a fabulous location next to the River Thames. But it's central London prices and use of plastic glasses are a little annoying. It's practice of locking all the doors by 11:20 meaning you can't even use the toilets is also worrying. Thank God for the Rutland Arms! The ale selection was Sambrooks Pumphouse Pale & Lavender Hill & Nelson Blue Anchor Ale. No real cider is served. Although they have Orchard Pig Reveller on keg. A good place to meet and with a fabulous location. But nothing else to recommend it.

Visited on a Saturday pub crawl of Ealing and Hammersmith areas, it is right on the river and was packed when we got there, had a pint stood outside watching the world go by, decent service seeing as how it was busy and the beer was well kept.
