We went as a family group as we have used this restaurant many times in the past. The menu seems to be getting smaller offering very limited choice. The quality and especially quantity of food is also getting less. Examples are a main dish being served in the same size dish as a starter and hot food is served on cold plates. Some of our hot dishes were only warm. Service was very slow on our last visit and main dishes did not all turn up at the same time. Whilst the ambience of the restaurant is good they seem to be understaffed to provide anything like good service. The food on offer lacks imagination and it is becoming an average but over priced pub food outlet. We are dissappointed that we can no longer regard this as one of regular venues.

We have eaten here quite a few time over the past 3 or 4 years, and have enjoyed the general ambience, friendly service, and interesting food. Whilst it is still a pleasant place, especially outside by the river, on recent visits we have found a restricted menu with not very exciting dishes. It seems now to be serving expensive pub grub. On a visit last week we had to wait while menus were printed, and were then immediately told three dishes were unavailable!
