Staff didn't say would you like anything for the children so time wouldn't drag, You have to ask. They didn't even wish my son... More

A very clean and well decorated hotel/restaurant in an idyllic setting, with a lovely outdoor terrace on the river. Sadly, the food quality, expensive bar prices and the tiny room we had were all disappointing.

We stayed this weekend. Stunning location and very friendly and attentive staff. Couldn't get the room we wanted so the manager gave us a different room with no charge and left an ice bucket and bottle of fizz in our room. Not the 4 poster we wanted but just as comfortable and slept like a log! We had such a... More

We liked the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. Took our Grandson there at Easter and enjoyed it so much returned two days later. Not tried the accommodation as we were staying elsewhere.The menu was varied with something for everyone.

Stayed here for one night on what was the hottest day of the year so far. We had requested an early check in and this was no problem to them. The room was very clean and a fan was in the room and working already cooling it down as we arrived. The setting is amazing and the breakfast was freshly... More

Stopped here for tea. Service was good but food was average. The pork steaks in Apple and cider sauce was very poor - avoid! The sauce was gelatinous and cold! Burger and scampi were ok but overpriced.

Very pleasant surroundings even on a rainy evening. Great location with easy access down to the water. Comfortable room nicely laid out. Food was very good and portions were substantial. Decent service though they did start setting up for breakfast while we were still eating! Overall that was the only real gripe of the evening.

The Fishermans Cot looks much better after a serious make over with new carpets, tables and decoration. The dirty terracotta tiles remain but I guess they are ok.... Food looked great on the Sunday carvery but I was pretty shocked at paying nearly £8 for two drinks! But then it does have a great location and they have improved the... More
