This is a restaurant very much at the top of its game. Terrific food, quietly attentive but efficient service and a totally charming setting in a light and airy dining room with views across the Severn, combine to make a highly pleasurable dining experience. The emphasis is very much on the fish, with a fine selection on offer, including brill,...

I enjoyed my first visit and am sure it won't be my last. I chose the mussels to start and they were excellent with a great liquor that deserved finishing with the spoon provided. Main course was a simply cooked grilled lemon sole with new potatoes. That was an excellent example of straightforward cooking that had nowhere to hide and...

This restaurant with two rooms to stay in is a gem of a place. We went for a family celebration for dinner and then spent the night here too. The setting is beautiful and the bedroom looked out over the river Severn. We asked for some champagne before dinner to be delivered to our room and this was done immediately...

We had a birthday lunch here on a Sunday. The service was relaxed, fine for us, but might have been slow if you had been in a rush. The food was good, well cooked, and nicely presented. I thought the prices were a little high, but is is an amazing location, right next to the River Severn. The staff were...

Thank you so much for your review and very pleased that you and your family enjoyed the birthday lunch. I am sorry that you found the service slow but all our food is all cooked to order and so some dishes may take longer than others. Also most of our guests come for the dining experience and do not want...

Our 2nd visit, and just as good as the first in the summer. The food here is really excellent - I don't think there is a better fish restaurant in England. I had a fantastic fritto misto of seafood with a delicious passion fruit dipping sauce, and the best dover sole I've ever eaten. The prices for this amazing food...

Excellent lunch today, those who say they only eat fish by the sea should really try this place, they will be pleasantly surprised. Top class ingredients, confidently cooked. It's a bit off the beaten track , but a lovely setting and well worth the drive. We had excellent scallops, crab and lobster.Crusty fresh bread, desserts, and petit fours were of...

We are delighted that you enjoyed and that you have shared your experience! Our fish is fresh and delivered on an almost daily basis from Cornwall - the reason we shut on a Monday is due to no fish markets at the week-end. All of the items you mention, ie the bread and petit fours are made on site so...

We visited this week for the 5 course tasting menu. Each course was different and wonderful. There was a perfect gap between courses, and we happily came away feeling replete. We were given a tasting card describing each course but each course was described as it came as well. If it wasn't a bit of a drive for us we...
