The steaks were very expensive, had little flavor, and were tough. Over 50% was fat so the actual steak was very small. I think each steak was over £28.00. I don't know where they get their beef. It could be the chef's fault the steaks...More

After long wonderful day, we came to the restaurant, have soup, oysters and the rabbit - everything was just tasty, the service was great and the atmosphere just as it should be. Highly recommended!

Lovely friendly staff, good food but a bit expensive. Beautiful location on the riverside. The staff were very helpful - and found a table for us at last minute even though they were obviously really busy - much appreciated as were very hungry.

My sister is gluten free and they always have gluten free pasta. My wee boy is dairy free and we take our own smelly dairy free with us. They are always helpful just ask and I'm sure they will sort something out for you.
