Had a lovely Sunday lunch here with my family. The food is delicious and the staff are friendly and attentive. The setting is also nice with a lovely view out to the river. Will definitely be returning for lunch in the near future.

A really lovely restaurant that I would highly recommend. The service was good. The decor is lovely and had a cosy atmosphere, seems to cater well for couples or larger groups. Good selection on the Sunday lunch menu. The food was reasonably priced, presented nicely and was very good....will go back again.

Really enjoyed eating here over the Christmas period.Cosy,especially if you're lucky enough to get a fireside chair. A great location to catch up with family and an equally comfortable location when dining solo.Varied menu.Good quality locally sourced produce. Beautifully presented food.Friendly staff. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Popped in a few weeks ago for lunch with my partner. We didn't have a booking but were accommodated well. There was a good atmosphere with some Christmas parties enjoying themselves too. Food was delicious, we were so nicely full after our meal. We definitely return!
