Having booked a table, my friend & I were looking forward to our meal, BUT despite there being quite a selection of meals on the menu, not one was served with vegetables!!! Most had salad or one can order a side salad, BUT no vegetables!...So although what we ordered was ok, we won't be visiting again as we like to have vegetable with certain foods. Also, I had a starter as my main meal as all the main meals are too large for me & I don't like to waste good food. I had the Falafel with chilli sauce which was very good & I ordered a side of sweet potato fries... but was only able to eat a few as they were overcooked, more like crisps! Told the waitress who apologised but still got charged for them!More

All meals were pre-ordered for speed and ease, and with an early sitting should have gone smoothly, however all 5 of the preordered fish dishes were off as the fish had not been delivered and so and a very long wait long wait at least...45 minutes. Sadly the meals were pretty dire, dry raost chicken undercooked pork, dry and hard inedible roast potatoes, even the broccoli was rock hard, also parsnips and carrots the same. The waste and left meals were very sad to see. Eton Mess was a Mess but not true Eton Mess, with very sharp mixed fruit at the bottom. Yes it was hot and yes, busy, being beside the river,More

Really nice place right on the river, steps down to a couple of temporary moorings, gorgeous views of the surrounding area. We went at a busy Sunday lunch time and only wanted a couple of portions of chips before heading on our travels, even though...the kitchen was very busy and really they weren't taking any further food orders for 20 mins or so, they were very accommodating and brought our chips out very quickly! Basic soft drinks, nothing special, but the chips were amazing. Lovely place, would come back - especially since the next pub along wouldn't even let us in without a reservation. Lovely shaded outdoor marquee area with picnic benches, ideal for a hot day and a fidgety toddler.More

Went for Sunday Lunch to meet friends, a lovely looking pub on the river. We were greeted by a friendly young man who showed us to our table. Our drink order was taken quickly and efficiently but unfortunately when brought to us was wrong, this...was rectified quickly without a problem. Glasses however were handed over to us by the top/rim of the glasses, not very good. We were given enough time to decide on our food. On ordering Sunday Lunch we were surprised that we had to decide right away if we wanted two or three courses and chose the courses there and then. One of our party wanted steak but unfortunately it couldn’t be cooked the way we wanted. So five Sunday Lunches, different meats and amount of courses. Service for me was poor, the general rule is to serve from a guest's left, this wasn’t done and meals were passed across us. The food was lovely, HUGE Yorkshire Puddings which were a little crunchy, but a tasty lunch. Half of our plates were cleared away then desserts served which caused a little confusion before the other plates cleared,but tasty and sweet. We were not offered the opportunity to have any other drinks or coffee which was disappointing. On receiving the bill we had been charged for 6 people, our server(who took the order) was confused and asked if we had had any extras, strange when it was her that took our orders. The issue was rectified after a while. It wasn’t a busy service so unsure how we experienced these problems.More

So disappointed tonight. We popped into the bar area with the dogs for a drink and bite to eat. I was half way into my pint of coke when I realised there was a big pink lipstick stain over my glass. I find that disgusting....(Maybe I should have checked sooner but I don’t think it’s up to me to ensue a glass is cleaned properly) We had ordered a pizza and some chicken wings to share. 3 chicken wings for £5.99 was abit expensive I thought. However, given that both items are somewhat finger food, no napkins and no knife and fork. Not the best service and dirty glasses have put me right off. Positives - decent enough decor, very nice location on the river and dog friendly in the bar area.More

Great riverside location with outside terrace (some under cover) Was delighted to find good gluten free options, and an interesting menu. (The chicken and chorizo skewers were excellent and portion size good). Service was quick (about 20 mins). Highly recommended . I'll definitely return!

The location is lovely and the place as a whole is very nice. However, we went in for lunch, asked for menus - so no ambiguity as to why we were their. Ordered drinks, went back to the bar to order food, only then to...be told the ovens aren't working so only limited menu items. As the ovens/hob rings were out of order, I can only assume the food on offer would have been microwaved. We did not come out for a microwave meal!! We were no happy that to staff did not inform us of the kitchen issue. At least you got some money out of us for drink. Very poor customer care.More

We went to this restaurant twice during our recent holiday, the prices were very good value and they had special offers eg; two for one on certain nights. The service was really good, friendly efficient staff and not long to wait (although maybe due to...the fact that the restaurant was quiet) Staff brought a jug of water to the table as soon as we sat down without being asked. Restaurant was clean and nicely presented.More
