NFT London Putney


Putney has a bit of a bipolar personality disorder. On the one side, it's suburban middle England with its rugby and rowing types, on the other, it's increasingly vibrant and hip. The High Street's a bit genteel by day and young-and-up-for-it at night. Try Ma Goa for authentic Goan cuisine. For fab brunch head to celebrity chef's Wallace & Co or Moomba Kitchen & Bar.

The Boathouse
Oh Boathouse! Life made it so easy for you to charm us. Uncharacteristically sunny day? Check! Cheerfulness of Sunday lunch with a new man? Check! Beating a rival couple to the last table on the Thameside patio? Check! But after 50 minutes of waiting, the sun had lost out to the breeze from the river and we were desperate for hot food. When it arrived, the £13.95 beef ribs were as cold as the frozen snot stalactite from my now sub-Arctic nose. And my £9.50 salmon and noodles? Just don't get me started on my £9 bloody 50 salmon and noodles. I don't like to complain: I prefer to settle these issues by silently grinding my teeth. But the staff knew. They took away our food to cook it, and apologised profusely when they returned an hour later. They looked suitably mortified as I sadly sawed through the grease coating each coagulated noodle. And graciously they didn't charge us. New man assures me The Boathouse is normally superb however. I hope so, as this stylish place would be a real delight if they didn't cock things up so whole-heartedly.
