We booked The Pepys for our wedding reception and cannot recommend Abbie and the team highly enough. Everything was taken care of in a friendly and professional manner – no hard sell, no stress, no problems. The food was absolutely phenomenal, the drinks list has something for everyone and the views over the Thames are a stunning backdrop. Worth every single penny.
