About Thames Lido

Nestled between the restored Edwardian pool and the river Thames, the restaurant is a relaxed and unpretentious space where the floor to ceiling doors slide back to let the elements in.

Watch the swimmers go by as your food is cooked in the wood-fired ovens.

Our menus have hints of the Moorish and of the Mediterranean, with a strong Spanish lilt. Great ingredients sourced from small-scale hand-picked suppliers are cooked over fire with a sense of pleasure and fun.

Cuisine: Mediterranean, Spanish, Set Menu, Tapas
Dress Code: Casual

Absolutely beautiful in every way. The Lido team went above and beyond catering fantastically for particular dietary requirements, the food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented, the staff were superb as ever, and the sun even made an appearance! I can't wait for next time :)

We love the Lido- the food is great and the staff are super friendly. There is rarely a week goes by without us finding some excuse to drop in.

It’s like being on holiday, every time I step foot in the Lido, whether we just swim, eat, or have a massage - it’s another world.

There were very few options for Tapas lunch. We were looking forward to prawns and other dishes advertised on the website but they didn’t have any. Plates were tiny and didn’t find them value for money we paid

Menu selection for tapas was extensive & particularly good for non meat eaters, all delicious too! Service was great & we were well looked after. We feel fully confident in being at the lido right now & are back in a fortnight, this place never lets us down.

Really pleased with the size of the tapas dishes - plenty of food and really delicious. Gorgeous panna cotta dessert. Very pleasant service. Started raining, but umbrella perfectly placed to make sitting outside totally bearable. Lido, we’ve missed you, and we can’t wait to be back ASAP!

I absolutely love it at the Lido. We go there for a meal for every celebration and it's always the first place I'd go for a bit of "me time".
