Lovely staff and great tasty food to suit all the family young and old. Very reasonably priced menu and I sang along to the 80s and 90s classics playing while having lunch. Will certainly be going back! 😎
Lovely setting with views of St Peter's Marina. Varied lunchtime menu of full meals and lighter ones Food well prepared and nicely presented . Friendly service Really nice atmosphere and great that it's an independent local business rather than the more common standardised corporate offerings
Fantastic place and food was beautiful . Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable . Will certainly be back for more meals . Highly recommend this place
Food tasted great, service was good, definitely go back again. Going to a wedding here next year, so came along to have a look around, a great choice I think.
The food was beautifully prepared and well thought out. It's a lovley setting and the service was good. The price was very good for the standard of food. My only small niggle was that the deserts seemed a bit of an after thought ( which is often the case in very small kitchens with no proper pastry cheffs). We went at 8 on a Saturday night and were the only ones eating. I know its a bit out of town but I think it is only a matter of time before the word gets out how good it is. I would defiantly go again.
Food was very good. However after main course we waited 45 mins and still no one came to ask if we wanted dessert. We eventually went and said we wish to pay and mentioned about poor service. In fairness they were very apologetic. There had been a problem with change over of staff.
Good food and service. Far too loud with the local boat club giving speeches. It stopped us being able to speak to each other as they were so loud I couldn't hear my family. But pleased with the food as ever.
Relaxed nice setting, staff friendly and polite. Sunday lunch good apart from my husbands roast beef. We were asked how to have it cooked - well done our preferd choice. However came rare. He tryed to eat it. Otherwise everyhing was nice. Would not let this put me off though.
Good quality food and service, lovely location. We had Sunday lunch which was excellent along with a good selection of drinks to choose from, only downside was the card machine was not working, so cash only.
Excellent service. Food was fab. My wife and I went for Sunday lunch after a recommendation and we were not disappointed. Best roast potatoes I've ever had.
