The Depot riverside restaurant in Barnes, situated in the award winning development of Tideway Yard, on the river Thames, celebrates its 25th anniversary this autumn.

Whilst appealing to a local crowd, The Depot also attracts guests for special occasions, drawn by a unique location and an established reputation for consistent and competent cooking at reasonable prices. The atmospherics and riverside setting complete a successful formula, which has thrived for 25 years.

Head Chef of the past six years, Gary Knowles, puts their longevity down to listening to and understanding the customer needs. “Our customers are very loyal, but if you don’t get it right, they’re also very vocal! We’re celebrating this anniversary with a special menu that we know the customers will really love; a menu that spans the decades and features many of their favourites from the past 25 years.”

The Depot will feature this special menu during September (£25.00 for 3 courses). Expect dishes like Brown Windsor and Steak Diane from the eighties, Aubergine Parmigiana from the nineties, and Tongue & Cheek terrine with homemade piccalilli from the noughties.

To add some fun to the occasion, every diner choosing the £25.00 Anniversary Menu will be invited to throw 3 dice. Throwing a 2 and a 5 will mean a complimentary meal for the dice thrower. Champagne will also be available during this limited period for (you guessed it!) £25.00.

A recent party to commemorate the anniversary was attended by Richard & Fred who were two of the original waiters at The Depot when it first launched back in 1986, before finding fame in ‘Right Said Fred’. “It’s wonderful to see people here who we recognize from almost 25 years ago, with their grown up kids; as well as the original owners of course! And great to know that a special effort is being made to mark the occasion’.

Recent recognition for The Depot's winning formula came from Time & Leisure magazine, presenting them with an award for Best Restaurant, along with Chez Bruce; voted by the readers and presented by Antonio Carluccio.
