We were staying at the hotel and had dinner in the restaurant the first night but there was a drinks reception on in the hotel lobby and an overflow in the bar/restaurant which made it very busy and very noisy which was a real shame.

The menu is very varied with some novel and innovative approaches in presentation and taste (e.g. the goat's cheese starter... More

We ate in the restaurant here prior to our wedding. The food and the choices were amazing. We had trouble narrowing down our menu as all the food was melt in the mouth and the desserts were equally fantastic. The chef was so nice and friendly and very accommodationg with our requests. 10 out of 10 from us.

As I mentioned in my review of the hotel, my dinner in the River Restaurant was very disappointing - tasteless and severely over-cooked and yet described, by the server, as freshly prepared! I would be very surprised if the main had not seen the inside of a plastic bag that it had been boiled in!
