We were not acknowledged by the two bar staff as we waited at the empty bar! Staff were not friendly or welcoming. We ordered some food once in the restaurant. When my husbands burger arrived,it was still raw in the middle!They took it away without any apology. When his fresh meal arrived,I'd finished mine!There was no offer of a complimentary... More

The new outside dining area (actually it was always there, but they have re-painted the tables and planted some new border plants) is a great improvement on the standard sticky-topped pub garden style of yore. We found the (newish) cosmopolitan waiting staff to be reasonably attentive, and our food was served promptly so we enjoyed it in the late sunshine.... More

We only had coffee on this trip, but the view are spectacular and well worth a visit. Food looked pretty good and the staff were very friendly.

The service and general attitude of some staff and presumably management really let down what could be a great place.Not only a unique location, but also the only place you can eat or get a drink if on the river. Over the last few years we've visited a number of times for those reasons. Each time it's been hard to... More

We decided to eat here after sailing down from Portsmouth for the night. We hadn't booked but were able to enjoy a drink on the sofa overlooking a great view, before being shown to our table and our drinks immediately placed down before us- they have good attention to detail like that! We were given pate and bread selection before... More

I ADORE the Master Builder's new Yachtsman Bar at Buckler's Hard. I recently tried their veggie 'Baba Ghanoush' pizza and it was amazing! The best pizza I've ever eaten. Now that they employ waiters the experience has definitely improved, you no longer have to order at the bar, instead you can watch the river and relax. I would recommend parking... More

We went to the hotel for our wedding anniversary and were upgraded to a room with a view and a four poster. This information was evidently passed on to the restaurant and we were given a glass of prosecco each and made to feel special. Jose, the Restaurant Manager was delightful, charming and efficient and obviously an excellent manager. The... More
