This is a heartbreaking review to write as they are so nearly there, setting to die for, beautifully decorated dining room, but the food is awful. We actually had to send ours back untouched. We ordered the Chateaubriand steak, not cheap and had guests with us- so not a classic, and i'm afraid to say it was off, the chef was charming and came out apologized profusely and offered us lots of other options instead, but we really didn't feel like anything else. This place has the potential to be outstanding,and Barnes is crying out for it, but they need to get great produce in and sort out the kitchen asap.

Notwithstanding its mixed reviews we felt this was a pretty good place when we visited the other night. Apart from its enviable location on the river, the food, service and atmosphere were not at all bad and the bill quite reasonable. A group of us are going again this weekend so it better match up or else ...!

Thought the welcome was a bit frosty at first but Eastern European bar maid eventually thawed and smiled! Sat outside on small terrace overlooking the river Thames. Barbecue menu here (there is another restaurant upstairs). I had fabulous lamb chops (3) with tabular salad and a pleasant glass of Pino Grigio. Very pleasant to sit and watch life on the river. Service was good.

Having read the reviews on TP I was apprehensive when going to the restaurant for Sunday lunch which my son had booked. I need not have worried. We were shown to our table by a delightful young member of staff and liked the layout of the restaurant which had nicely spaced tables which allowed you to hear your companions' conversation. Service was friendly and efficient.

Starters of soup, pate and charcuterie were very good and mains of roast beef, belly of pork and chicken were well cooked with adequate portions. Four adults and two boys, 8 and 5, all voted it a most enjoyable meal.

I certainly did not recognise this restaurant from some previous reviews and would have no hesitation in visiting again.

Food is crap, this is the only thing to say. I went there for a Sunday roast and the portion was small: meat full of fat and not well cooked, roasted potatoes were hard and overcooked (probably from the day before), gravy was a light brow liquid...2 roasts and 2 beers for over £40. Go there to have a pint as the pub is in a wonderful location along the Thames with quite good space outside, but don't spend a penny to eat there.
