It's a great location and bodes very well for a nice evening. I thought service was exceptionally good - all the staff are polite, discreet and very professional. The food was very good but not outstanding. I had a warm goats cheese tart for a starter which was probably the highlight - really light pastry and a lovely consistency with... More

Went her for Sunday lunch and at £32 for 3 courses it was excellent value. Get there s bit early and sit outside in the heated seating area and enjoy the wonderful view. Good and service was very good and we did not feel rushed at all. Would definitely go back and would recommend to others.

I took my girlfriend to Le Pont to celebrate her birthday. We had a great time at the restaurant and were very pleased with the high standard of service. We opted for the tasting menu, and the restaurant was kind enough to offer an alternative for one of the courses which we did not particularly want. Food was excellent, tasting... More

This is a very local place so was sad when standards fell some time ago and have not been for a while. Took some out-of-towners as local and was pleasantly surprised. Once we insisted on a table in the restaurant, against the rather stubborn seater, the atmosphere was fine, if a little noisy. Main gripe: the portions are really small,... More

The food was lovely and the staff were exceptional. My only complaint would be is they don't offer a vegetarian Sunday roast.

We had Sunday lunch in the Bar section of this great restaurant. The staff were particularly well trained and friendly. The food was of high quality and reasonable value given the location and standards. The menu is very flexible and I am sure there is something for everyone on it. Very Good!

We ate here as a group of 6 last week for lunch. The location of the restaurant is great and the food we ate was nice. It is a shame that they have such a limited menu for lunch as the dinner options looked great. The service was pretty poor for an upmarket restaurant, which let it down and led... More
