A pretty good view from about half of the restaurant, especially before the sun comes from the other side of the river, at which point the blinds have to be closed as it's blinding. Very convenient to one of the more popular punting spots. The...More

The food was very nice but the view was the selling feature! The food as I said, was nice but nothing out of the ordinary.
