“Awful food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Visited here on August bank holiday Sunday 2012 with overseas visitors. What an embarrassing experience. Beetroot & Brie tart was a pastry case filled with what seemed to be a cheese sauce - no Brie or Beetroot anywhere in evidence. Another member of our party ordered risotto. It wasn't risotto. I complained but the waiter merely shrugged. Never again!

“Planes Overhead”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Fabulous location, gorgeous scenery but oh! all that noise, aircraft low flying, motor cyclists roaring through. It is what it is a brasserie and bar don't expect a banquet!
