“So-So”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Wasn't impressed with the selection on the menu, rather limited and the flavours failed to match the description. Some of the food was not cooked particularly well and the pricing was over the top for the quality of meal.

“Superb Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Lovely view of the river surrounding the hotel from the restaurant. Expensive food but worth every cent. Fresh hot bread served with a cup of soup compliments of the chef. All of our main courses were lovely and tasty especially the veg and creamy mash! Deserts were all beautiful aswell as being decorated to a high standard. WIll be back very soon.

“Best food I have had..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

The food was somewhat organic, or at least it tasted like that,everything was freshly made and tasted like food I havent ate before, simple food like soup, the breads and pesto before dinner were a treat! nothing was left without a gourmet touch
