Huge menu

Large choice for starters and mains. Food was very good and generous portions. Seemed to be short on staff so bar service was sometimes delayed while waiting at table.

Lovely meals at reasonable prices and very friendly staff. The view was great being right on the River Wye but be sure to book well in advance especially Saturday Night.

If it is home cooked we would be surprised partly because the menu offers so many choices that they can't all be freshly prepared. Also the menu lacks any detailed description of the food. We had one starter and two main courses. Portion size was good but we both felt that the sauces came from a jar. We don't go... More

Lovely river Wye views. Good food for the most part. My only criticism would be the chicken stir fry which is not recognisable as an Asian dish : it should be veges lightly cooked in a wok and the chicken would not be battered and dry but maybe that is how it is cooked in the UK.

If you want a great steak, this is the place. I had a rump steak and they had to cut the steak in haOf to put on my plate. It was cooked to a T. The starters were really good and I finished off with a banana split. Heaven...........

We've been twice to eat in the evening & both times we were not impressed by our food, although others with us had better luck. Whitebait is very good. Pies are just 2 ovals of puff pastry cooked on a baking sheet & then sandwiched together with pie filling. The fillings are tasty but that's is not real pie! Chocolate... More
