Service poor, food overpriced. When finally served, we had burned, dried up chicken, poor quality sausages with unappetizing mash. No ambience and dirty tables. Only good thing was the view. Would not eat here again.

Good food and nice beer, but poor staffing. No offer to help carry drinks to the table, no cutlery brought out - we had to go and find it. Nice location. Could definitely be enhanced by some service improvements. A shame.
