Valentines Day Wedding Breakfast

Massive thanks for a perfect wedding breakfast last Valentine's Day. The Boardroom was just right for our party of 21, the food was excellent and the service couldn't have been better. It made our daughter's very special day even more special.

We opted for mains and desserts but could see from surrounding tables that the starters, particularly their sharing platters, were copious and interesting, certainly worth... More

This is an exceptional hotel - beautiful historic rooms and a fantastic view over the Great Ouse. Excellent location, quiet but within easy walking distance of the main attractions and shops. A delicious meal also.

It's situation in Kings Staithe Square, on the banks of the Great Ouse River is within easy walking distances of all the attractions of this historic town. Although all... More

When shopping it is good to have somewhere to stop and have lunch and know that you will enjoy it together with good service. Something on the menu for everyone. Will go back.

Excellent rollmop anchovies whitebait, and crayfish and a lovely leaf salad with toast and tartare. Mains equally elegant and a choice of large and small( after the starter I wish I'd down graded)! Real ale wine list etc.... More
