Had dinner there this evening, have to say the food was excellent, the staff attentive and polite, and the overall ambionse lovely. We live local, and therefore had the opportunity to eat reasonably early, and take advantage of their 'early bird' offers. Excellent value for money, and I would recommend that special to anyone that can dine prior to the... More

Visiting the area 5 of us went to this restaurant and enjoyed an excellent meal from the 'Beat The Clock' Menu which was available from 5pm to 6.30pm. We all had the beef and ale pot pie for the main course which we all loved. Whilst a limited choice on this menu all courses (including sweet) were excellent and good... More

5 ladies, we went this evening for an early meal together, and thought we would try the beat the clock £10 deal offer, as we were just in time! What luck, we thought! Limited choices, obviously, at this price, BUT the trio of tiny tarts on a bed of salad leaves had only one portion left. I was lucky enough... More

This delightful restaurant offers classic meals alongside some very inventive and clever combinations; crab fritters were a great starter and a main course of salmon on fennel was very tasty. The staff are friendly and there is a great atmosphere. The tables at the back of the restaurant have a lovely view of the river.
