“Super Views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The Fishermans Cot has a stunning location right by the river, and has been a popular location for many years, however it does need a bit of a look at.

The menu is rather limited, but perhaps this could be due to the quieter months coming, but the staffing does need attention, it is rather slow !

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have visited a few times in the past and enjoyed our experience. However, on a recent visit, the menu seemed very limited and more expensive. 1 vegetarian option wasn't available and the other was a salad - not appealing on a cold night! The meals we chose we average - quite stodgy. Good service, but then it wasn't busy. Overall - disappointing.

“Must see for yourselves beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Stunning views, along with scrummy food, at peak times a little slow on staff but hasn't stopped us wanting to go back.

“Fantastic spot!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

We stopped by just for a short while for a snack on our journey back to the North West. We were not disappointed! Great location right by the river, right next to a picturesque bridge. Had a tasty snack and a nice cool drink which set us up for the journey. Will remember this place!

“Great View. Average Food and Service ..and Overcharged on CC”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

This was a typical tourist route establishment. Lovely location especially on a nice day when you can sit outside by the river.
Food was average by todays standards and relatively expensive.
I handed over my credit card details so I could pay by cc. DO NOT RECOMMEND DOING SO....PAY CASH! When I received my card statement a few weeks after my visit they had taken a further £10 as an additional transaction which I did not authorise!
It was "OK" for a holiday meal but nothing more. I shall not be visiting again.
