The Hart's Boatyard

 Seared scallops (which came in three sizes; small, medium and large!) with bacon strips. Scallops were really good, fresh and juicy topped with crispy bacon. Heaven! Duck confit and toast in the other plate was not very impressive though - toast is rather plain and huge with a stingy amount of duck confit.

 Lamb rump - very nicely done! Medium rare, very tender and succulent. Portion is just right for small eaters. 

 British ribs and pie. When I saw this in the menu I could not relate ribs and pie. Like how can the those ribs be in a pie? Usually it's either ribs or pie, but ribs AND pie. Interesting much how they really stuffed the entire bone in it! I didn't try it but it does look pretty amazing I would order if I'm dying for a pie.

 Slow cooked pork belly - that dish I've forgo for the lamb. It wasn't the dish I've ordered so I don't remember much of it. It does --look-- pretty awesome though. (:

 That sinful sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream one SHOULD ORDER!!!!!!! I fell in love with sticky toffee pudding after trying it. It's super sweet, very moist, served hot. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream - such perfect combination!

Earl Grey crème brûlée - I've never liked crème brûlée because it's just really sweet. However it tastes so good with earl grey in it! It is very highly concentrated in earl grey flavours rather than the usual sweet custard. Earl Grey lovers, you have to try it! Only in England I would find weird stuff like Earl Grey crème brûlée or ice cream. Good stuff though!

Overall, I would agree that the food over here is not too bad, but a little overpriced for pub food. Well it's a pub and dining place but I would still classify this place as a pub more than a proper restaurant and dining place. There are other pubs which serves good quality food with a more reasonable price. If you're in that area, no harm trying as you'll get a good view of River Thames.
