This is a mist attractive restaurant/hotel in a very pleasant position. The food and service were good but the pricing was a little too high for what we had. Despite going there with a £59 voucher got 2 it still ended up too much money with a bottle of overpriced wine and a service charge.

I don't normally write harsh reviews but there are limits. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and this venue was recommended by one of her colleagues. I don't know if they were understaffed in the kitchen on that evening or we were just forgotten, but the service was very, very slow. Four cold starters (2 carpaccio & 2 goats cheese)...

We took a weekend overnight break to attend the food festival on Sunday. We chose to eat out although the food smelt and looked really good so next time we would certainly consider trying this.

Stayed on a Monday night on business when the restaurant is closed. The staff had stayed behind to wait for me, very thoughtful. Gave me a choice of rooms, all looked very comfortable. Modern and stylish room, comfortable bed and deep bath with shower over. Good facilities, mini bar in the room and tea and coffee facilities. Delicious breakfast. Very...

Unless you want to be actually in the city centre, the Wharf House is in a good location on the A40 just outside the city, and local paths connect with both the city and outlying areas. Room was spotless, comfortable, and well equipped. Restaurant - the dinner was to a very high standard and there was certainly enough of it;...

An attractive 'superior' B&B... very good food - but not cheap. Rooms pleasantly appointed - shower ran very hot - be warned (did mention this on check out) - friendly staff. A nice walk into the city - but clearly way marked all the way - more for the adventurous.

Great Hotel, spotless extremely comfortable rooms, and superb food (albeit a tad expensive). It was just let down by a charmless check in, I have a broken arm and we had a horrendous motorway journey and all I wanted was to get to my room use the loo and have a lie down. Instead we were asked to take a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An AA Red Rosette 4 Gold Star Restaurant with Rooms serving quality freshley prepared produce. 7 lovely ensuite rooms of real character with views of the Canal or River inclucing one ground floor room with independant access which is suitable for dogs and is fully accessable. We would strongly request and advise advance Reservations for the Restaurant. Signature dishes such as Venison rolled in Walnut with a sauce of red currants with a hint of Dark Chocolate and vegeterian and fish dishes that show imagination feature.Please note that we do not have a childrens menu but welcome young diners who will not disturb our other guests and wish to experience the normal a la carte menu. Our menus are designed as three courses, with side dishes available for those who wish, but the option to choose less courses if you wish less. We also offer both an Original and Vegeterian 7 course Tasting Menu. We would recomend bookings at least 48 hours in advance as some dates can be booked weeks in advance. ... more   less
