My first visit to Watford and we were looking for somewhere to have dinner. We had seen the good reviews on Tripadvisor and thought it was the place for us. It had nice décor, great ambience and lovely staff. The food was delicious and we would definitely go again.

have been many times before and it's good value for money and good service.however today was hot and everyone was outside and it was very noisy with traffic going over the bridge and too many people smoking and shouting to traders on stalls nearby.

Thought we would try this branch as we had been to Bushey one and really enjoyed it. The food and service was very good but as it was a warm day the door and windows were open, some people came inside and we heard them say that there were too many people smoking outside and they wanted another table.

We have visited many times at different times of the day. The staff are all friendly and the food excellent . My friend ordered the seafood risotto for her birthday meal and absolutely loved it. The staff made a fuss of her and produced a lovely dessert . We will definitely go back in fact tomorrow!

Varied menu, good sized portions, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Haven't tried for other meals but they are always busy, a good sign.

We have been eating here regularly in the evenings for some years now and always have a great time. The staff make you very welcome, the restaurant is spotless and the food is always delicious, plentiful and extremely good value. The menu is varied but not so overloaded that you feel they have no character. We tend to order either... More

We regularly stop here, both for breakfast and dinner, and have occasionally had lunch as well. We have never been disappointed. The breakfasts, with their fresh juices are wonderful. The staff and service are lovely. Situated near the small flyover, it doesn't look special, but is well worth a diversion.

We went here for lunch the other day. It was pouring with rain and this was the nearest to a friend I was going to visit. It is situated in Bushey in a rather bland shopping parade. And the outside looks equally uninviting. You enter to a sea of people which I guess is the first indication of the popularity... More
