I have now been quite a few times - 3 times under the previous management and about 3 times under the current owner. The most noticeable thing is the difference in attitude from the front of house - previously on arrival and during the meal the reception was welcoming and eager to please. Now sadly (same on each of my... More

I visited yesterday for lunch. We were a party of four and ate outside with lovely views. The service from the moment we arrived was excellence, un rushed and very relaxing. Food was exquisite. I have read other other reviews mentioning portion size, but found portions to be more adequate, perhaps as we didn't order turbot. We ordered Spanish fish... More

We booked the bore breakfast at £25 head at this restaurant. The attitude of the hostess was not very friendly. The toast had been made well in advance. The fresh fruit and yoghurt portion was tiny and the selection of fruit uninspiring. The cooked breakfast was very ordinary with bland sausages. The choice of teas and coffees was tea (... More

We had lunch here on a glorious September day. The terrace looking across the Severn to Newnham is sublime, the weather was perfect, and the food excellent. However it was an hour from our arrival to the appearance of my friend's starter and another hour to the main course - as I hadn't ordered a starter it was just as... More

We had an excellent lunch here and the fish was superbly fresh and full of flavour. The service was good though not particularly quick; however, we were in no hurry and this is a place to relax, with a lovely aspect over the river. My only slight qualm was the portion size, particularly for the very tasty salmon starter, but... More

Visited this specialist fish restaurant situated on the banks of the River Severn. Although a bit 'out-of-the-way' it is worth the drive. On arrival you can see the site of the old ford across the Severn from which the restaurant takes its name. On the other side is the picturesque Forest of Dean and the town of Newnham on Severn....

The standard of food is less than it should be for the prices being charged, the waitress was most pleasant. Have visited many times, the previous owners served fantastic quality food but over the last few years the food has become less and less good, not surprised only one other table of 2 people on a midweek summer evening. Don't... More

Booked for a birthday celebration, we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and they did very well for our large booking. We didn't have to wait long for our courses to come out and they kept us well topped up with drinks. The setting is beautiful, even when raining I should imagine. Really was amazing food and presentation was superb. Quite... More

One bottled beer and a diet coke cost my wife and I over £9.00 - talk about overpriced. Will never set foot in this place again!

Friendly staff, exceptional views and amazing food although VERY expensive. I go here for a treat and I enjoy it hugely every time. It's proper gourmet restaurant fish food. Go here for the experience, not to fill your stomache, or you'll be emptying your wallet! I don't care though... it's amazing and the best and most interesting food in the... More
