This is the first eatery I have visited in the last two years since I found I was gluten intolerant that cooks meals, as a matter of course where possible, gluten free! The menu is clearly marked GF, all starters are GF if ordered without bread and even three desserts marked GF too - the latter is usually totally off... More

An nice setting, some nice fish. Unfortunately all negated by rude, unhelpful, sullen bar staff. Family friendly? Apparently, not friendly at all.

Good food and top entertainment thourghout the summer also Chritmas and New Year festivities In the summer sit out in the sunshine beside the river Blackwater watching the local boats or in the Winter sit inside in the snug warmth.

We went for lunch and sat outside. The drinks were fairly flat, the waitresses behind the bar were miserable. The food was ok but the omelette was not cooked enough. It still had runny egg. We have had better food here before.

All of the Staff are very friendly and welcome you with a genuine smile. The menu is varied with main meals being under £10:00 and children's meals even cheaper. All the portions were good no matter what you ordered from the large menu. We had a lovely lunch outside and watched the small and large sailing vessels up and down... More

I have been here quite a few times now. The food has always been delicious and the seating is spot on. The only down side to eating and drinking here is the time to get served at the bar. I completely understand that when it's busy, you will need to wait a little longer for service, but every time I... More
