I enjoyed my starter and King prawn main, great service, nice atmosphere, lovely surroundings set on the river. My partner was very keen to have grilled fish but wasn't keen on how it was prepared! Is was off menu which I thought was accommodating but not quite what he expected. Would recommend a try.
Reliably tasty, friendly staff and drinkable, reasonably-priced wine. Vegetarian choices as well as fish, chicken and beef. Booking ahead advised on weekends. Located off the road behind a gin bar, also worth a visit.
Very good food - a little hard to find but worth the effort as the quality was superb! Friendly and attentive service as well. Great!
