We booked our meal well in advance and were shown to a corner table in the large deserted bar. Upon ordering the various dishes, we were asked 'How would you like the lamb?' This clearly was a trick question. 'Medium rare' we replied. We chatted and waited...waited and chatted, before realising an hour had passed. With this sudden realisation, a... More

The Food is great, service can be hit or miss a lot of young staff who a keen but slightly rabbit in head lights. I love the downstairs bar that opens onto the Riverside patio area, although the door is hard to move. Place is clean, welcoming and friendly, I have had better and I have had worse. definitely worth... More

Just had a Sunday carvery at the riverside and the food doesn't disappoint. However the service definitely did. We had a family of 6 attend for lunch for a birthday treat for my mother and the experience was not the best. The waiter when one person finished (others still eating on the table) would take a plate from the table... More

Went for a meal with the family on a Sunday afternoon after a day in the very beautiful countryside. We were welcomed and shown to our seat by a very helpful young lad who took care of us throughout the whole meal.The food very very reasonably priced and very nice for the money. We will be back soon...

We had my Birthday bash there it was amazing, fantastic staff all meals came out in a timely fashion, looking forward to going back for a Sunday roast this weekend. The only reason I could not give a 5 star is because of the decor its a little tired views are amazing though perfect thank you

Arrived Friday afternoon and was checked in by some random elderly lady who was there having a drink in the restaurant area herself with friends, obviously didn't work there but knew the basics of how to check someone in, she muddled through, which was fine but unprofessional on the establishments part. Eventually a young lad turned up and took over,... More

Health and Safety needs to be a top priority with these guys especially on Sundays when the Carvery is available. There was all sorts of fallen bits of food on the floor around the serving area, no one clearing it up. Overheard a woman complain about a hair in her food. No staff being attentive to the status of the... More
