“Nice romantic place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Nice location with very nice food, the menu could have been a bit more extensive. The wine was nice, though it had to be for the price.

“WHAT HAPPENED ON 25TH MAY”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

i really dont know what happened on sat 25th may. bar staff didnt know what J20 they had or what lager. there were no side plates for bread rolls plus they had run out of rolls and not enough to go round. there was ten in our party and most of us drank wine . water was asked for but no glasses were brought. presume we were expected todrink from same glasses as we had wine. we asked for water glasses and did get them. there was only one salt and pepper for a table set for ten. the food was fine but nothing to rave about and i think scampi on the menu was a bitlike pub grub ....... not very impresive for what is supposed to be a top restaurant in the town. the waitress wasnt very well trained as she didnt appear to know which side to put and take plates from. to say the cost of ten of us for food and drink wasnt cheap it was rather dissapointing to say the least. sorry for being so negative but all ten of us commented on not being happy with the standard.

“Good food but wine very ordinary and expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening in May. The restaurant was full which is always a good sign. The food was excellent and the service good. The location was perfect. My only complaint was the wine which was over priced and not very special. Having said this I would still go back again.

“Couldn't fault it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Have visited this place on several occasions now and I've never been disappointed. This is a lovely location and is slightly remote and bordering the river with a good sized terrace where you can enjoy pre dinner drinks on a warm and sunny evening.
Wine choice is difficult given the extensive and tempting list but always a pleasure.
Service is good and staff will always try and accommodate requests to ensure you have an enjoyable and memorable experience.
I can honestly say it's one good reason to visit Kings Lynn.

“a very pleasant dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed and really nice lunch in this nice restaurant, we hadn't been here before in fact only discovered by accident and very glad that we did. we had the lunchtime £13 menu I had the Smoked salmon and chive omelette and my wife had the Sea bass both were delicious and the puddings were yummy. The service was efficient and friendly and the ambiance very good as there were about 16 people all sat down one end of the room which made for good atmosphere. I just cannot understand people complaining about having people sat next to them we had a nice Scottish couple on the table next to us with whom we had a nice chat.

shame on the person who made personal comments about the Waitress she is there to serve you but you do not know her or own her. We are in Norfolk on holiday and we will go back again to the riverside again
