This was a spur of the moment evening and we had not booked. We had been to this restaurant before when it had been run by previous owners and were less than impressed. This evening the staff were friendly and attentive. We had drinks in the bar whilst we ordered our food and the wait was minimal. The fish cake starter was very tasty and the tomato, mozzarella, avocado and basil salad was very fresh. The asparagus and pecorino tortellini was delicious but too much for me to finish. My husbands lamb was amazing - I wish I could make shoulder of lamb taste like that! There were 6 tables in and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. The background music was good and not intrusive. One negative comment if I have to, we had to ask for our wine twice, but it was soon brought to the table with an apology. A lovely, unplanned evening and we will be returning.

We were greeted by a team of young ladies, who made us most welcome. This restaurant had been totally refurbished since the flooding in 2009 and it looked fresh and interesting. The bar area was very pleasant, and the meal order taken, with a note of the food allergies that two members of the part had.
The meal when served was excellent, and well presented,but as usual it was a case of "who ordered what", instead of just putting the food down. We wanted to thank the Chef, but unfortunately he was unable to come to the table, but did thank us. The only small down side was were as there had been four ladies during the service, there was no one there to say "goodbye" and thank us for our business. A very small and minor point, but an important one. It is not anything that would stop us going again as the atmosphere and food were so good.

We have eaten here on more than one occasion and found every dish we have eaten to be excellent, the wine list is well balanced, and the bill was a pleasant surprise. We will definitely be sharing the restaurant with friends and family.

The service was first class. Staff very attentive and polite. A good choice on the menu and the quality of food was superb. Beautiful setting with a choice of tables indoor and outdoor looking over the river. Lovely on a summers evening.
