After our riverside walk, we chose to have our lunch here. The tomato and puy lentil soup was tasty; this was served with 2 slices of fresh bread and butter. Our coffee and cake was also very tempting. Staff are very friendly and obliging.

It isn't difficult to spot when a restaurant has a good chef at the helm, lifting the food out of the ordinary. Coltman's fits the bill and it helps that the restaurant is comfortable and welcoming with staff that are very efficient and friendly. There...More
