I had Sunday lunch here with my husband. I had scallops thermidor for a starter, which was perfectly cooked and the cheese sauce was delicate enough not to over-power the scallops. My husband was also impressed with his seared scallops with black pudding starter. We both had roast cod for the main, which came with very nice accompaniments including samphire and girolle mushrooms. The highlight for us though was the chocolate delice we had for pudding, which was intensely chocolatey but nicely balanced with a salted caramel centre and cooling almond ice-cream.
Some reviewers have commented on the service being off-hand or rude but we had very friendly and attentive service throughout, so perhaps these issues have since been addressed. The restaurant setting is also worth mentioning as it is next to the Severn, which is very picturesque on a sunny day.
