Lovely, tranquil area
Apr 2021 • Friends
Always love a walk around the island, it is spacious and calm with the sound of the river and the birds tweeting. Plenty of seating, area suitable for kids and a small cafe serving drinks and ice cream. The SANDS (stillborn and neonatal death charity) tree is very touching.

A nice walk
Sep 2020 • Couples
This is an enjoyable place to visit. The area is very good to walk around and there are birds and guinea pigs to look at in the animal area by the weir. Lots of wildlife too, from swans and ducks. A bridge takes you across to the Riverside area which also has nice walks.

2nd visit disappointment
Sep 2020 • Couples
First there was very little in regards to Covid protection.
Non of the staff had masks on which was worrying compared to several other venues we visited.
The place was extremely hot as the air conditioning was not working properly. Later in the day they opened a door though for a breath of fresh air.
The waiting staff were very friendly and attentive.
The food was very hit and miss
12.50 for four queen scallops nicely cooked but the sauce was appalling. Maybe just not to my taste but very similar to taste and texture to a can of Heinz baked beans.
The mains were ok at best . Wondered if the cod was fresh as it was watery.
The pie had hardly any meat in it.
The mini Sirloin was nice I WAS TOLD.
The drinks were all good and price wasn't too bad .
We didn't make a scene or complain as we were with other family and didn't want to spoil the day.
THE SETTING ,LOCATION AND SCENERY ARE AMAZING AND ITS A PITY THE FOOD DOESN'T MATCH.
We wouldn't return again

In these difficult times the team have excelled. The food menu is great and well priced.
The service from start to finish is excellent. Attentive but not ruining the experience.
Superb! Totally recommend.

Relaxing and pretty
Jul 2020
Such an idyllic stretch of river and made all the more pleasant on a warm summer's evening.

We live near the eastern end of the Thames where's it's 500m wide and very tidal. To see such a tranquil river that is used for various sports and just cruising reminded me how nice rivers can be! And, for some reason, it's just very relaxing watching boats pass through the lock.

Amazing cocktails!!
Jul 2020
We only came for drinks, but booked a table and requested to be outside. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating, we tried most of the cocktails on the list, my favourite was the rhubarb and ginger gin cocktail, I asked for it to be slightly sweeter as I am not normally a gin drinker, and they fulfilled my request perfectly, such a refreshing drink that went down very easily., and the price wasnt too expensive for cocktails.
Stunning setting over the river and I even got to visit the guinea pigs after on the little island attached. Perfect evening.

Sounds like the perfect evening, so glad you had a great time. Our team make some wonderful cocktails, but you really kind beat a Rhubarb and ginger Gin... delicious! Oh and the guinea pigs-how cute are they!!! We do hope we shall see you again soon.

Pleasant dog walk

Included the Island as part of a circular walk from Taplow, very pretty with sculptures, streams and wildlife. Great picnic spot.
