The Wharf Restaurant reviews

The Wharf is delightful - the views really are amazing and make your dining experience all the more enjoyable. If you like fusion food then try the Wharf restaurant as there's Asian elements to some of the dishes - something that makes The Wharf a real treat.

By James J.

Wow! what a refreshing experience I have just enjoyed at The Wharf in Teddington. It felt so relaxing to get out of the city and enjoy a tip top lunch with fantastic river views. Unfortunately my partner doesn't like boats so this is one venue reserved for me and the lads to come and enjoy!

By Michael K.

I just visited The Wharf Restaurant in Teddington with my partner and we enjoyed a lovely refreshing experience, a nice long lunch on the terrace followed by some surprising soothing jazz! Gents bring your missus and you are bound to be in the good books

A group of us came to Teddington and tried the Wharf. food was really good and nicely presented. just the three stars as our meals took longer than expected to arrive, however they were apologetic about the delay so I would recommend & I will go again.

By Tori J.

The other half is from Teddington and his family took us here last time we visited. They are huge fans and I was pretty impressed with the food, which was good quality but still affordable. I think we'll make them take us again!

By Billy C.

The Wharf Restaurant is one of the best restaurants in London, let alone just Teddington. Very lovely food and even better service, the Wharf Restaurant is somewhere I always take people I want to impress.

By Max K.

The Wharf Restaurant is such a good place! I met the owner (Ray Neve) and he is so enthusiastic - you can tell why this place is such a success with him behind the scenes. I also had a lovely waiter (called Mark, I think?) who was a right laugh - why can't more waiters get that balance between formal and informal right?! The Wharf gets the thumbs up from me.

By Talia R.

One of the best places around for atmosphere and views. If you like rivers that is and I do. There is nothing more relaxing than some delicious food watching the boats on the water. One of my favorite places.

By Gary M.

Yum yum! The black linguine and Brixham crab and tiger prawns is so good here at The Wharf Restaurant! :D

By Ken S.

Always enjoy the food when I come here to the wharf for a bite to eat, really picturesque surroundings ensure a lovely meal everytime.

By Seb T.

The Sunday by the river menu is a really good idea and my partner and I always take advantage of it when we come to The Wharf Restaurant for a bite to eat. Impeccable value for money, I recommend the fillet of seabass.

By Tracy S.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to staff and owners of The Wharf Restaurant for such a lovely evening last Friday. You kicked off my bank holiday in style!

By Sandy G.

Teddington is quite a way to come for a restaurant so only ever come to The Wharf when I'm visiting friends. Really nice outside area with great views always ensure I enjoy myself here.

By Dave J.

My wife and I attended the wedding reception of our friends here at The Wharf Restaurant and just wanted to say what a lovely evening was laid on. The staff were very professional and the food was exceptional. If we could give 10 stars we would for our rating.

By Dave J.

If it's a picturesque setting that you are looking for in a Restaurant then the Wharf Restaurant is the place for you. I've had numerous meals here in the past and always enjoy great service and lovely food. Highly recommend.

By Flo S.

The Wharf Restaurant is in a beautiful location on the riverbank in Teddington. I came here for a family lunch and the food was delicious, i had the beer battered fish and chips and couldn't fault the food at all.

By Claire K.

I have family who live quite close to the Wharf restaurant in teddington so this is a really convenient place for us all to go when theres a few of us. The food is pretty good but sometimes it does take a while to be served, normally only when its busy though.

By Kalvin W.

The Wharf provided a beautiful setting for a romantic dinner for myself and my partner! It was lovely to be able to eat our meals whilst looking out over the river. Price wise I thought it was pretty fair and we were made to feel very special by the attentive staff

By Dany R.

I think the riverside setting is what really inspired me to choose this venue for an intimate night out with my fiancee, and it definitely didn't disappoint! It was busy, but not crowded and being able to see the city lights reflected on the water was a real treat. The food was amazing and the service impeccable. This could easily become one of my all time favorite places to dine out!

By Jenna W.

Fantastic find on the River at Teddington Lock. Great food and great atmosphere.

The set menu was good value and the portions generous, I loved the barramundi with szechwan noodles.

I will definitely be going back for more.

By Samantha R.

The new menu at The Wharf is a culmination of ten years in the business and a genuine attempt to adhere to customer feedback. Has proprietor and chef Ray Neve managed to create the opportunity to experience good food at affordable prices with this new menu?

The Venue
The restaurant is nestled on the banks of the river Thames at Teddington Lock. The backdrop of the old converted boat house is urban and residential but the space of the venue uniquely opens up on to the river allowing a picturesque view and a feeling of being far away from the hustle and bustle. Inside, the light airy feel of the restaurant adds to the tranquility of the setting. It's a modern space with a large open bar and a gallery area that works as a second floor of restaurant space. Works of art from established artists and emerging talents adorn the walls all around. The wooden floors then lead up into the primary restaurant area. Breathtaking views and quirkily dressed tables give a minimalist contemporary feel, with white tablecloths topped with baking parchment, globe lights and coloured chairs adding modernity to this meantime setting.

The Atmosphere
The staff are excellent and friendly, attentive without being overbearing, and have a thorough knowledge of the menu they are serving, including any specials. There is a real mix of clientele with tables of couples having a relaxed meal as well as groups of people celebrating birthdays, and some just enjoying the view of the canoeists on the river. This produces an ambient buzz that runs throughout the venue.

The Food
There are indications of the quality of the ingredients at play with reference to thirty-five day aged Hereford beef, and the use of seasonal fish from sustainable sources, all of which leaves you impatient for the treats that may soon arrive.

Starters start at £4, rising to £14 when sharing certain items. Dungeness crab cakes come with a small leaf salad and a creamy yet spicy tomato dipping sauce. The cake is perfectly crisp on the outside whilst the meat retains its moisture and kick of spice on the inside. The hint of zesty lemon and coriander complement and don’t overpower the delicate flavour of the meat. Seared sea scallops and minted pea purée with crispy pancetta is a subtle, smooth and delicate combination. The contrasting texture of the crispy pancetta and against the soft scallops and velvety puree is a delight. Both dishes are also simply and neatly presented.

Mains, grills and specials range from £12 up to £25 for the lobster, with side dishes from £2.75 to £3.50. A 250g sirloin steak comes accompanied by chips, roasted vine tomatoes and choice of sauce, with peppercorn recommended. The cut of meat is indeed of excellent quality - - impressively moist and robust - but it is, however, slightly overcooked for medium rare and the charring from the grill takes away from the real taste of the meat itself. However, the chips are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and the peppercorn sauce is has good consistency, with a slight zing from the red peppercorns. Whole roasted flounder with capers, new potatoes and green beans is cooked to perfection. A delicate crisp on the outside, with the meat a buttery softness against the saltiness of the capers, feels very seasonal, matching the hint of spring in the air. The potatoes are cooked well and the green beans bright and crunchy.

Desserts are all £6. The caramelised lemon tart is beautifully presented, zesty and vibrant, offering buttery, crumbly pastry with a cool, sharp lemon curd in the middle. The crème brulee is not quite caramelised enough on the top to give that satisfying crack as the spoon delves into the vanilla cream below but it offers an excellent balance of flavour beneath.

The Drink
The staff can be relied upon to make excellent recommendations for wine throughout the meal, with a pleasing variety of wines available by the glass. An aperitif of Prosecco Borgo del col Alto (Italy) is the perfect start - dry with a hint of sweetness and a very delicate bubble of background fizz. The Crossing, Marlborough, New Zealand Sauvignon 2010 complements the flounder with more zesty flavours. Mamre Brook, Barossa Valley Australian Shiraz 2009 is deep and full of rich cherry flavours to accompany the aged meat. The red Muscadel, Robertson South Africa 2010 dessert wine is an absolute joy, with the rolling flavours of lycee, raspberry and subtle orange offering a perfect finishing touch to the meal.

The Last Word
Yes, great food at affordable prices has really been achieved at The Wharf. From the food and wine to the setting, the staff and the atmosphere, the dining experience is spot on - you can easily see why it is a favourite neighbourhood dining spot.
