We had a lovely meal here, the food was fabulous and our waitresses were very attentive. When we arrived they couldn't find our booking even though we had email confirmation with us and we were kept waiting for around 10 minutes where we were subject to whispering behind hands and stares by 2 of the staff. We were not greeted... More

Over many years I have eaten here when in the area and have stayed twice, many years ago. Now, in 2016, I have returned, for lunch on a Sunday and was not disappointed. If anything the food has got better, good honest stuff with a twist and well worth a diversion. The site is right next to the river and... More

Great place to eat. Great place to drink, and that includes just having a coffee. Do try the pie of the day. It's a proper pie, not meat with a pastry lid

My first visit to their Wednesday fish and chips special, I try not to get carried away but I have to say at £5.00 for fish,chips and mushy peas has got to be the best deal in Britain. The quality of the fish was superb cooked to perfection and having been given a window seat the view's of the river... More
