I booked our table online at 23:30 on Friday night. The booking was for 7 people, 4 adults and 3 under 8's for 18:30 the following evening. I received a confirmation email first thing Saturday morning.
As it happened we were half an hour early. This was apparently no problem and we were shown immediately to our table.
The staff were all delightful from start to finish, charming and keen to accommodate us in any way they could.
The menu was impressive and very reasonable in price. The children's menu was particularly remarkable for containing several smaller portions of adult meals rather than only the obligatory chicken nuggets, sausages and beans that the children are usually offered.
The boys had lasagne, steak and chicken curry. The quotes on the way home were: "that was really, really, really good / that was the best curry I've ever had / yummy thank you Mummy"
The adults were all equally impressed and my Thai Green Prawn curry was sensational.
We were really too full for dessert but shared a couple which were scrumptious - Toblerone Tart - wow.
The setting is fabulous and we stood by the river for a while after dinner. I imagine it would be perfect for a lazy lunch or long dinner on a hot evening sitting by the water and taking in the view.
None of us could find fault with our evening and, with three fussy children, a vegetarian who doesn't like rice and a meat -eater who doesn't like vegetables, that is really saying something.
Highly recommended, we will definitely be going back.
