Perfect for food and then a stroll down to the river bank on a sunny afternoon. Three course had a perfect balance of sweetness and rich flavour. The staff were warm and helpful and at evening just a drink out, the atmosphere was so friendly.

Went for Sunday lunch without booking but received a warm, friendly welcome. Although quite busy we were soon accommodated and had a lovely roast at a great value. Will definitely be going back. X
