I came for my birthday and really enjoyed the experience. Excellent food, sat over the river and a very good atmosphere. The service was also very good. The only slight hitch was a mistake on how many desserts we ordered (we asked for the baked Alaska's in advance) as they only brought 1 and not 2. But the mistake was... More

I have been here a few times and it is such a lovely place to eat. It has an interesting menu and is perfect if you want to celebrate. Great for friends, couple and families with older children. The lunch menu is great value! Once when I went I had duck which turned out to be a bit tough. I... More

Always been a fan of the lsb. Food was delightful though calves liver underdone for my taste but I should have asked! Issue was that if you enter a first floor and only one table is being used then you should be able to choose where you sit esp. as the attraction of a canalside view & a cool breeze... More

We went here for a birthday treat after hearing good things and we were not disappointed. The venue is great and has a nice atmosphere. We found the service good, not too intense but attentive. The good was really nice and tasted fresh and of a high quality. Looking forward to going again!

This has to be my all time favourite restaurant. The food is always superb, beautifully presented with an interesting blend of ingredients and flavours. My fiancé and I usually take advantage of the set menu available until 7pm - two courses for £16.95 when we visit on a Saturday. The restaurant is small and intimate with a great view of... More

Went here for our son's graduation dinner last week. The place was packed! Great atmosphere inside - looks out on to the river and has lovely outside seating as well. The food was excellent, well presented and plenty of it. The staff were very busy but could not have been more friendly or welcoming. The service was outstanding. It had... More

Beautiful venue with riverside tables and friendly, professional staff. Menus are extensive and there were plenty of dishes that I could have ordered. My main of lamb was superb, but the blue cheese souffle starter wasn't great and at around £9 I would have expected more. My husbands eel, however, was delicious and I would highly recommend. Wine list is... More

We just had what can only be described as one of the finest Sunday lunches on record, I have honestly never tasted roast beef as good. I love going out for food that I couldn't cook at home, and this certainly was that. This place really is a treat.

We had our sons graduation meal in this restaurant. We were a party of eight. The service was excellent and the food lovely. All the meals were very good. It is a little pricy but for a special occasion we couldn't have chosen a nicer place.

I have been here a number of times, and recently the food has been a lot more hit or miss. The menu is interesting and changes, which is great, but it doesn't always follow through and the food hasn't been hitting all the highs. I am sure it used to? This visit was for an anniversary and we had a... More
