Complimentary canopies, followed by sea bass were both delicious and beautifully presented. The waitress could not have been more helpful and pleasant. A really enjoyable meal.

We ate in the bar as we had dogs with us so cannot comment on the restaurant itself. However the food we had was pretty basic, and the chips were probably the worst we have ever had . They were soggy, baggy strips of potato, not cooked as you would expect a chip to be cooked (in our opinion) not... More

We ordered the seafood special for an early dinner and were very pleased with the service and the quality of food. I would recommend this to anyone who loves seafood.

Called with my wife for a 'Lite' lunch and found their Bistro to be 'Self Service'. Their Panini's were pre-packed in a cabinet and you had to hand it to the member of staff to heat it, when it arrived I found the centre of the Panini to be quite cold but I didn't complain. My wife wasn't too keen... More

The food and service did not live up to the expectations we had from looking at the website and other reviews. The food was ok, no more than that.

We had an evening meal here and the food, atmosphere and staff were brilliant. The bar staff were so helpful and friendly. The food served was first class and staff kept checking if we needed anything further. It was also great value for money.

We stopped by for a coffee whilst watching the boats lock through Neptune's Staircase. I would recommend this cafe for that and its cake selection. However, stopping by for a meal, would get a different reaction. Burger and Chips , will set you back over£10. As an ex chef, I cannot get my head around how you would reach a... More
