    We had lunch on the riverbank which has beautiful views over the Clarence. Food was tasty and the deserts were very good and all home made. Highly recommend

    The T-bone steak and green veg was absolutely outstanding. Far exceeded my expectations. In fact our dinners were so good that we returned a week later with double the group size!! And it was amazingly good again.

    A good meal in pleasant surroundings. You have to pay separately for each part if the order, so starters & Mains. Drinks then any refills. Then any deserts. It's a pity you can't just have one tab. However whilst it would be more convenient, we will still return as the food was very good, service and ambiance Wes very good.

    The door and bar staff could have tried to smile a little as they were the first staff we encountered and they looked like they’d rather be somewhere else. The rest of the the staff were excellent, welcoming, smiling and more than happy to help. The food was ok and the location is stunning. Worth another try.

    I asked the young lady who took our order whether the duck was worth trying. She said it was her favourite and it was terrific. After we finished I complemented her on her choice and a bit embarrassed she said “I never normally recommend things on the menu” and I said you should. Excellent meal and excellent service.
