We went on a saturday night to have some food and were really disppointed to find the place very quiet which is a shame as its a lovely location on the river, has a decent sized outside space and lovely conservatory, the staff were really nice, welcoming, friendly and chatty but the menu was not very appealing, I do however appreciate that a menu is totally subjective and depends on personal preference I have to say that from now on i would check menus online where ever possible to avoid a repeat. We did order some homemade pork scratchings and garlic Ciabatta to nibble on as we were hungry but the garlic bred was under cooked, heavy and soft instead of crispy and light as I would expect for ciabatta, It also had a lot of dried rosemary stuck to the bottom. The pork scratchings arrived in a little screw top jar which was quite sweet, but they were diced...... so if you are expecting big, warm, yummy pork scratchings you will be left wanting.
I must say that their sunday lunch blackboard was worded well and sounded good..... and I could almost be tempted back to try this........maybe, though if on a very quiet saturday night garlic bread isn't right i'm not sure a sunday roast would be worth it. Sorry Riverbank
