Went here over Xmas (been many times before also to Wokingham and Reading over the years). It was the first time I had been with my other half as seem to have only been for girly or work lunches in the past.
It was relaxed in there and I have always liked the fact that you can see the food prep being done.
I had the crab ravioli starter, my boyfriend had the potted mackerel. For main I had hake with hollandaise sauce and he had fish and chips - we also ordered the mussels and prawn extras and the prawns were really really good! so sweet! Mussels were lovely and big too. Everything we ate was perfectly cooked. Simple food nicely done.
Puddings were lovely (creme brulee). We ate far to much, but it was Christmas so that makes it okay in our book!
The staff were really knowledgeable about the food and recommended a good white wine. In a chain restaurant I sometimes find that process is of more interest to a waiter/waitress than customer service - definitely not the case here. Really welcoming, staff are consistently good and I have never had a bad meal here - based on at least 5 visits.
