We often meet here for coffee or drinks. It is a great location and suits us as we are local. The service can be spasmodic but the staff are always friendly.

We had afternoon tea here was lovely . A bit disappointed to be charged for champagne when we didn't actually have any but didn't realise we were charged until after we left. The restaurant overlooked the river so it was a beautiful setting. The weather was glorious which made our afternoon extremely pleasant sitting by the river after tea.
