Muffins, sandwiches and even chocolate mud cake are on offer - and incredibly, it's all good for you. The owners plan to open further branches soon.
The annual Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race may be almost a month away (3 March), but if you want to see the start of the race in style and enjoy a five-course Boat Race Lunch afterwards, you are advised to book early at Putney Bridge (0181 780 1811, above), which offers panoramic views across the Thames.
