Pub called The Dove has a lot of legends. One of them says that King Charles II often came here secretly in the 17th century with his mistress Nell Gwyn, the darling of the British people unlike his French mistresses. Another story claims that the famous hymn Rule Britannia was composed in the pub by James Thomson, and it's actually true. In the 20th century Hemingway and Graham Greene were drinking there. A more recent list of famous pub guests can be found on the wall above the fireplace – and the visitors can have a look at it between drinks. A small room features a mark indicating how high the water rose during the London 1928 floods. The pub menu features traditional fish'n'chips as well burgers.
