We ate outside by the river. Good service with a smile. Food was lovely and courtyard surroundings perfect. Idyllic watersedge setting - so peaceful in an otherwise busy area. Looked just as welcoming inside. We will return.

Can you catch the punt from this restaurant ?

Response from Tim C | Reviewed this property |
not sure about jumping on the punt, but it is where all the reps stand so not far.
Has it got its own car park? If not how near is a car park and how easy to get in on a Saturday?
