I've been to this restaurant on and off over the years. The food has been brilliant every time and the wine choice is impressive. The staff are also very attentive. The place is private and conducive to either romantic meals or a group of friends meeting up. You can hear each other too! The place is cosy.
I am going to review two recent events. The first was my close friend's hen night. The organisation of this, in a private room upstairs, was effortless and easy. All the correspondence with the restaurant was slick and smooth. I was able to add some nice touches to the private room for the hen night and the room was a perfect size for such a smart do. The food was hot and timely and delicious, the drinks came on time and the staff were attentive. I think we were given our own staff upstairs, at least that's how good the service was. Going back the next day to collect things was easy too. I cannot fault a single thing.
It was such a success that when it came to booking a place for my child's baptism, it was a no brainer to go back to CWB. We booked the larger private room upstairs and again, the planning and communication was effortless and easy. No stress, no worries. The canapés were delicious and timely, the staff were amazing and helpful and friendly (I recognised some from the hen night) and the house champagne was positively commented on by our guests. Arranging a cake to be delivered there, for me to decorate it, and for them to cut it at a certain time was easy too. Our guests had a brilliant time, baby change upstairs meant no parents had a stress about that. Pushchairs were parked out of the way and I was able to collect personal items etc later into the evening when it was convenient to me. The space up there is lovely, light and airy. We had a nice breeze from the windows and the view over the river was impressive. There were enough sofas for those who wanted to sit.
Some of our friends had lunch there before the baptism and said the food was delicious (she's a frank foodie) and the staff were attentive to them and her daughter.
We need to go there more often and I hope we will. In fact, I have another big event coming up and I will be going back there again for that!
A big thank you to everyone there. I hope more people take advantage of this wonderful secret and private restaurant. Especially in the summer when it is ideal for a gorgeous walk by the river after dinner in the late evening breeze. Or during the day after lunch.
