Walked in after a meal at the restaurant across the road, impressed by the cocktails that we had from the menu and the topdeck with a cheeky view of the castle! Managed by a lovely Russian fellow who we will definenently be visiting again soon!

I like the idea of a restaurant on a boat. Unfortunately, both times I visited this place I found the food to be terrible and the atmosphere poor. It's more like a seedy bar than a restaurant. Very disappointed.More

Staff were rude, food was ok for price/setting. Staff seemed disorganised & were really unfriendly. Ruins the atmosphere in the place & made us feel unwelcome.
