In a fantastic position overlooking the river & obviously a very historic building. However, way overpriced average pub food & very slow bar service rather spoiled the experience.

I was so shocked at the small portion that when this dessert was presented to me by the waitress I exclaimed "£6.50 for that??!!". But she ignored my protests and alas I was stuck with it because at this restaurant you pay at the bar before you see what you are getting! Whilst I can appreciate that £6.50 for a... More
