I had gammon which I have to say was lovely although a little overpriced, my husband had the burger with thin fries, the thin fries were more like crisps and the burger needed to be cooked for a bit longer...the staff were excellent and the venue was nice and clean

Special thanks to Yoddis who looked after us very well. It was a beautiful sunny day and the Shard was absolutely packed but we had wonderful, friendly service and great food.... More

We travelled from Scotland to visit this restuarant for a family celebration. Beautiful setting but that's where it stopped. Our meal was very poor and the prices were outrageous. Starters were delicious but main courses very poor indeed. I had chicken Kiev which I was so looking forward to but there was no garlic butter inside it....the chicken was burnt... More

We decided to revisit the restaurant where we had our wedding meal. We went disappointed. The staff are very nice and food also nice too. Sadly a lot of the specials had already gone so we had a limited choice. Nevertheless we had a lovely meal and we wouldn't hesitate to come again.

Sadly not a lot of atmosphere shame because it's a great location food was very nice well presented no complaints about that. Had our meal then left, nobody in the bar it was very bright didn't feel inviting enough to make us want to stay. But I will go back for the food.

This place seems to maintain pretty good standards. Not a budget sort of place, but it always delivers. Always worth a visit if you are in the area.

A lovely location on the Wyre estuary whatever the time of year. Tasteful decor quite contemporary and the food is nice and well presented. The price is somewhat expensive compared to other local places to eat and the quality isn't any better or worse. Maybe the price tag reflects the kind of customers they wish to attract. No riff raff!... More
