First server was terse, but the second perfectly friendly. Despite there being no queue and the place being virtually empty, the food was slapped onto the plates with speed and a lack of delicacy. The area itself is always pleasant to visit, sitting outside in...More

This restaurant has a stunning location overlooking river. Its location by Saluhall makes you think that you'll get best food ever. We had salmon which was great, but not as good as it can be for the price you pay. The wine was fine. In...More
