We’d hoped to see if this was an appropriate venue for an upcoming family event so left a message on their booking enquiry line at the end of December. Over a week later I’d heard nothing back so made a lunch booking for my wife’s...More
Great service and great food. Our waiters, George and Pandeep, were charming and quick to help, particularly with my wife’s disabled father. All the food was well presented and tasted delicious. And was brought promptly.

Rather disorganised in handling the range of individual requests and expectations in a large (celebration) gathering. Main Reception services a bit casual particularly for a high profile conference and party venue, Staff pleasant enough but often apparently "under-trained". Restaurant food (dinner) was good, well presented...More
The worst meal I’ve had in a very long time. We had to wait for 1 hour and 45 mins for it to arrive. When it arrived it wa so poor. Tiny amount of belly pork with rubbery cracking, dry bubble and squeak and limp...More
Called in for Sunday lunch after walking along Thames path. was looking forward to a delicious lunch. Waited for ages at bar to order a drink. Young Spanish lad was very cheerful and helpful but seemd to be the only person doing any work. Various...More
Visited the pub this Thursday evening, had a very nice main meal, but the desserts were bland, toffee pudding was hard and more like a firm cake slice, and the berry terrine wasn’t amazing.
Great atmosphere in the old building and friendly staff, shame the...More
