Good size restaurant. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice table by the windows. Great views over the water. Food tasty and served hot. Decor a bit tired in areas but did not spoil the evening.Fixed price early bird menu gave good choice and value for money.

As a family, we had a lovely meal here. The staff were exceptional. There was a very nice ambience with a pianist playing, it was mellow but with buzz. Thank you.

The entrance is a disgrace and the whole place needs a good refurbishment. Food was either overcooked or not cooked enough. Very disappointed and would not eat there again

I don't know where it's sourced, but all food is of a high qualitity. I'm sure if you asked the staff would be able to tell you or ask the chef to find out.

A restaurant with great views of the River Avon on three sides. Proud to sell Herfordshire Beef from our friends at David Dudley's on the menu complimented with an extensive award winning wine list and international beers. We have 2 coach spaces, terraced seating, 100 seat restaurant,lounge area and a large function/conference room with its own balcony, kitchen and bar.
