Very busy, don't expect to feel special. It's a fast food restaurent idea with little care for customer service. No room inside, plenty of room outside by the beautiful riverside. As soon as you walk in expect them to take your card, insert into a machine and have you by the currency! Casually instructed no debits will be taken and... More

Hi Thank you for taking the time to review us. I'm extremely apologetic that on the this occasion you didn't enjoy your experience with us. For customers wanting to eat outside, we take a pre authorisation off a card to set up a tab, this does NOT debit any money from your account, it merely holds a £1 and produces... More

We went there on Sunday afternoon for some food, as the place had been recommended to us. We went first of all earlier in the day and due to the lovely weather, the place was packed and people were queuing out of the door to get to the bar so we decided to come back later. We returned at approx.... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. I'm really very sorry that you felt like you received poor customer service. I was the ''girl' that served you. And can only apologise that you felt like that. We had an extremely busy day, the ales we have on had ran out, and due to us keeping good beer we clean... More

Fantastic place with great food and an even better team running it. Over a number of months we have progressed from the occasional pint on a Friday afternoon after work, to turning it into our local (even if it is a couple of miles away). Not had a bad meal here yet, and we always feel welcome by the extremely... More

This is in a superb spot right on river. We were not told that no one was on sight until 5pm but a quick call and someone was with us in 20 minutes. No staff on sight during day so if you do have any problems then have to wait until pub opens at 5pm or call the number which... More

I have eaten here twice in the past three years. The first time I didn't review. But this time I feel I have to. We went on a Sunday for the carvery. The food was exceptionally bad. I had a prawn and salmon salad in which there were 4 prawns and some pretty awful chemical tasting cash and carry mayonnaise.... More

This is a beautiful building, well maintained and decorated inside and out. I'd definitely go back in the summer for drinks overlooking the river. Our Sunday lunch however was decidedly mediocre - very cheap looking sausages for the kids and my roast beef was tough. Coupled with old tasting veg and gravy with no flavour at all, I only ate...

We went here for Valentines night. The atmosphere was nice , the staff were nice and attentive. We ordered olive tapenade, olive oil and bread to share, a huge bread board arrived with far too much bread on - I suggested to my husband that we could offer it round it was so much. My husband ordered the duck and... More
