We were a large family party of 25.All the meals came out together so cannot praise the kitchen staff high enough for acheiving this and all the meals were excellant with no complaints.The waiting staff you could not have found fault with,they were fast and efficient.Colouring materials were provided to keep the very young entertained.A very pleasant experience and would and do reccomend it to everyone.

Great food and service and excellent for a romantic dinner for two through to a whole party. Staff are attentive and prices are reasonable given the standard of the food.
The riverside location is nice, especially in the summer time.
We will certainly be going again soon.

Three of us went out to celebrate our son Chris's birthday, which was great, but the food was so good and the service so attentive but discreet, that we spent the rest of our time celbrating Chris's choice of restaurant. A great night out !. When we left there were 2 parties of 12, 2 parties of 8, and a few other customers who all appeared to be very happy !!. We certainly were.

Came as a works xmas night out, the restaurant was full, the service was very good, there was 8 of us, we all enjoyed our food , which was beautifully presented.
This is not the first time we have been, good everytime.
Ok you might say there must be something you did not like, well for me would have been nice to have jugs of water on the table, but then perhaps I should have asked, so this is not a criticism.
Would definitely recommend.

Food and service were good but we were charged full price for one meal for a person who was not there. Disappointing.
