A day in the life of

I have taken friends here for Coffee mornings. The Setting is so special, In the nice weather the outside seating is such a joy, just to be able to while away the morning watching the people messing about on the river is so much fun. On not such a nice day the inside is just as nice. If you can... read more

First went here for Mothers day - we had a cream tea and was hooked. We have been several times since, afternoon tea, lunch and dinner - each time the service, food and all round experience is excellent! We will be going back!

I arranged a breakfast meeting here & was delighted to find that they served eggs Benedict 3 ways, traditional with ham or Florentine with spinach or my favourite with smoked salmon. the service was very prompt, sadly the cappuccino was watery with little froth & not very warm, the flat white I had later was better though not the best....

We have eaten on the terrace and in the adjacent area quite frequently, but this was the first time in the main restaurant. It was what we had expected and even perhaps a little better. The service cannot be faulted. The each dish was of the finest quality and really beautifully cooked and presented. There were four of us. We... More

Ordered coffee and asked to see the menu..very attentive staff who said if we wanted to eat they would show us to a table...we read the nice and very reasonable menu...decided against it as we were already booked for dinner elsewhere...

Stayed for a weekend with my wife. Excellent room facing the river which really is a delightful outlook with small boats pottering past, swans moving serenely by and dogs retrieving balls and sticks. Very peaceful. Large comfortable bed and plenty of hanging space. Thoughtful addition of iron and ironing board (why don't all hotels provide this?). My only complaint was... More

Excellent experience. Swift and pleasant service. We were attended to and seated the minute we arrived. Our delicious Afternoon Tea was served pleasantly and staff were alert. The surroundings were beautiful and the restaurant was efficient, comfortable and relaxed. Going again!

The Captains Club has a lovely backdrop and beautiful scenery but unfortunately that's where the compliments stop, its not the first time we have visited the restaurant and for some reason we still come back (not again, not for food) I don't think we have actually had one meal where we have all enjoyed everything and been happy. We like... More
