We booked a table ahead (large family party) and had a great table in the conservatory.

The staff were friendly and happy to help. They were attentive with drinks/replenishing water jugs etc and we never felt rushed.

All the food was really fresh and tasty, and everyone was pleased. My burger was delicious and too big to finish.

The children's meals are generous.

Only one complaint- every one was served their meals and the toddler's arrived after a delay. I know the servers were quite young but please try to order the children's food first as it takes time to cool. Thank you.

Overall a great experience and we will be back again I am sure.

Restaurant iss on the small side on the inside.. I think most of theri seating is outside and it's probably great in the summer.
I went of a catch up with my friends. The food was fair. Nothing exceptional but you get what they say on the menu. I had the duck salad and it was satisfactory. The Eton mess was delicious. Couldn't fault it.
Service was fine, once they started serving us it was consistent.

Great location but we had been before years previously so already knew how amazing the views were.

Food was really great so tasty and well cooked and seasoned , such good value couldn’t believe the cost when it came up, felt like it would have been about 20% more!!

Service was exceptional, so friendly and attentive really really nice and personal!

Lunch here to celebrate wife birthday.
Were looking for a position by the river, this can not be nearer.
Food was very good and service by staff attentive.
Would recommend.

4 adults and 3 children (6 4 and 2). Lovely venue for families in the conservatory. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The kids meals are very generous portions. We brought a home made chocolate birthday cake, which they were happy to bring out to us as dessert. The chef had popped some strawberries, mint sprigs and extra chocolate sprinkles on .. Lovely touch..and candles ... thank you. It was grandad and dads birthdays
We will be back as made Sunday lunch easy and delish for all. Reasonable prices too for such a lovely location.
