Food & Drink

Visit Our Cafe, Bar & Tandoori Kitchen by the River Thames

Our restaurant and cafe bar is at the heart of Waterman, in a beautiful location on the banks of the River Thames. Both the riverside terrace and many of the indoor riverside tables have stunning views across to Kew Gardens and Brentford Docks. The view is never the same as the tide ebbs and flows.

The Guru Tandoori Kitchen

The Guru Tandoori Kitchen opens for lunch and dinner every day, whether for full a la carte or a speedy pre-show supper or lunch. It serves a wide range of Indian food. Do allow enough time to eat, all our dishes are freshly prepared so some take longer.

For a really special view, ask for the riverside tables when you book.
