Early evening dinner before a gig at the Fleece (fab venue). We were in the main restaurant. Interesting menu. Portion sizes right (as in they look small but you end up stuffed). Smiley, attentive service. Tips go to staff.

We haven't been here for some time, no particular reason just trying new places, but good to see it hasn't changed. It's a great place for lunch and although it was cold and raining when we visited, it was still nice to look out over the water from the table situated at the window which also kept my friend's daughter...

We had a really lovely evening here, table was in a corner by the waterfront which was great as we were with children and wanted to be tucked away. Shared delicious small plates to start and then had equally good main courses. Wine came by carafe as well as bottle which is always good. Service was friendly and efficient. Would... More

We had a two-course lunch at the Riverstation last weekend. We were a little early and so we were directed to the bar on the ground floor where we enjoyed a pre-meal drink before going upstairs to the restaurant. From the outset of our visit the staff were efficient, attentive, polite and cheerful, and could not be faulted for their... More

We were part of a private party, and the food and drink were both of a high standard. The service was excellent - attentive but unobtrusive - and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

We were lucky to get an early pre-theatre reservation on a busy Friday night, and were pleased to see the interesting set menu was on offer. Once seated in the modern but comfortable dining room with excellent views over the harbour, staff were quick to offer drinks and some excellent fresh bread from the basket. The service throughout the meal... More

Regrettably, the clock was ticking on the meter, and it took 2 hours to get through a simple set lunchtime menu. That said, the staff were all charming and the food very acceptable

Booked for a birthday dinner . We hadn't visited this restaurant for a couple of years . It wasn't the same as I remembered : much more formulaic , very fast service , food not that good . I remembered it as being a restaurant with lovely tables , white cloths etc : it is now cramped with plastic chairs.... More

Looking for somewhere with a table about 9pm on a Friday night,. We lucky they could accommodate us downstairs. Different menu to upstairs but still we had delicious steaks and burger in our party. We liked it so much we returned for brunch today with three others. Lovely Eggs Benedict, Royale and Florentine, risotto, scrambled egg and Portobello mushroom, all... More
