Good food, great location

We booked in advance as it was Easter Sunday. The food was good quality and cooked well. The staff were efficient and attentive. It was a lovely sunny day so the view of the river was an added attraction.

A pre-wedding party for 20 people, not easy to cater for. However, with per-ordering, all the meals arrived together, which is very good. Good portions on all meals, tasty and mostly well prepared. Private room, well looked after.
