We regularly visit this Brasserie with our elderly parents; a long drive from home in the New Forest but always happy with the result. I'm not sure if the Chef has changed over the last few years but there was a noticeable improvement with the food this visit.
As mentioned before the location is marvellous, a short drive from from the M27 situated with superb River views and despite the actual building not being the most attractive architecturally (70's?) speaking it does have its charm because of the above.
Considering this was August Bank holiday Sunday and there was a wedding party in full flow we were treated extremely well, no signs of stress from the staff and only smiles and courtesy were afforded to us. I was truly impressed. An amuse bouche followed by traditional fayre of 3 courses each.. the starters imaginative, beef cooked to perfection, the chicken equally tasty with plenty of fresh vegetables. this is not gourmet food but it is well thought out, beautifully cooked and presented well. The staff attentive and courteous at all times despite my change of mind and mistake on the wine order..they always conducted themselves with a smile! If only all places were run in a such a pleasant manner. Will we return? without doubt! ;-D
