Had afternoon tea here yesterday. The food was beautifully presented, and tasted great. Tea was very nice too, and price was good. Would thoroughly recommend.

This is possibly the best restaurant location in Bishops Stortford, right on the river with great outdoor seating. Sadly, the food is pretty average at best. We've been here a couple of times and since our first visit the menu has changed a lot. There is now a tapas-style option, which seems a bit expensive and has very few choices for vegetarians. The rest is mainly sandwiches and light dishes. We tried a burger, which was a frozen cheap beef burger (the lamb one was sold out) in a store-bought bun. A bit of salad, no relish. The fries were good but generally nothing you couldn't make at home much better. On a previous visit we've had a patisserie-style dessert, but never again as they look beautiful but are stale and dry from sitting in the fridge all day. The staff are great but probably best to avoid the food if you come here and just enjoy the view over a beer or glass of wine.

Came here yesterday for their Sunday Jazz Brunch (10am - 3pm) and everything was just excellent!! Service was absolutely perfect the whole time we were there (3 hours) - always checking we were ok, checking if we wanted more drinks etc so was very impressed with that.

The buffet (£17.50) was absolutely superb - such a great selection of good quality foods and also tried many foods which I have never had before including wild boar, oxtail, veal & horse !!

Tried many of the Belgium beers which were very tasty indeed....overall a great afternoon spent outside in the sunshine along the river :)

Highly recommendable!! Thanks :)

We had the function room upstairs. It was brilliant. The service was amazing our glasses where never empty. Food was great couldn't have asked for a better service. The children under 6 loved it stuffed themselves with cream cakes. Used this place before for my birthday great lunch before heading into London.

After an 18th birthday lunch pary at home, We took our daughter here on sat 10th august for dinner. It was a disaster, to start with it was like a ghost town, at 8 pm on a sat night!! Our table was completely bare, not a serviette in sight. Weordered drinks, they took forever to come. My husbands g&t had no ice or lemon and the glass was like a childrens glass. The waitress spilt the lemonade and didnt bother clearing it up, i had to get tissues from my bag. My sparking water was left on the table unopened plastic bottle, again no ice or lemon offered and again a childrens glass. The food was not good it came out in dribs and drabs, 2 of us had finished before the other food had come out. THIS IS NOT A RESTAURANT, it is a cafe. Will not be returning.
