We went with great expectations but I came away feeling I'd been ripped off. The set menu was falafel for starter and mousaka with some salad leaves for main - not worth £15.00. An extra £5.00 for a pavlova (mediocre) with 3 grape slices and a spoonful of greek yoghourt, £2.50 for a coffee and an unspecified amount for tapas (2 small bowls of olives with a small bread basket). We were a table of 7. I was just so disappointed.

Ripped off? The Homemade Bread and Olives on the table are FREE!
What you failed to mention was that there were a two piece cabaret act playing in the restaurant, the evening was 'Cabaret night' - so the price of £15 for live entertainment all evening and a two course meal and free bread and olives , I think is pretty good!

My partner and I stayed here for a weekend in May . The welcome, accommodation, food were all fantastic. Lovely location near the river for some post dinner walks.
