I ate here recently with my boyfriend before a gig in the Marquee. We ate from the early bird menu - very good value. I enjoyed the chowder and the burger, very tasty. We both really enjoyed the food and service was good too.

Had the early bird meal deal here before going to see Elton John. Had a lovely pre-drink downstairs in the bar and sat outside beside the river. Went upstairs for dinner and it was very tasty. Very good price too. Food, service and location fab!
