A lovely location and lots of space, but it was the end of a long Saturday and the staff were clearly tired and not very interested. A lot of tables were left uncleared and unclean. The manager was first class, clearly very busy but he looked after us well. There was a much longer wait for food than we were...

I've been here with my girlfriend in the spring and winter when visiting her family home. In the spring, the outdoor space is absolutely stunning. In the winter, the indoor space is nice and cosy. We never got food here, but the drinks were reasonably priced.

Food tasteless. Took an hour to serve us. Burger dry and overcooked. Macaroni not available, not told when placed order. 3rd visit in 2 years. Never improves. Will not try again. Shame. Brownie for dessert, slightly better than mains.

Stopped by for lunch with my daughter on a Tuesday lunchtime in the Easter holidays. There was one girl behind the busy bar clearly doing a large order but being incredibly slow about it. People all around me were getting grouchy. At last another member of staff appeared and I asked how long the wait for food would be. He...

We were j visiting Bath, and hadn't looked up any reviews but had chosen the pub because it was close to where we were staying and looked so lovely down by the river.The first two adults arrived shortly before 6pm...

Quite a hard one to review as the food wasn't necessarily bad (although the gammon was quite salty). It was a decent size & the chips & dessert were good. However I've never been anywhere & been told if you sit in the garden you have to have all courses at the same time!! They would go cold! But as...

Stayed with friends for a chilled weekend. Room was lovely with balcony overlooking the river. Staff ever so helpful. Slight (though not significant) problem with the computer booking in system, for which the manager offered us drinks while we waited in the bar. When the computer was sorted (it took no more than ten minutes), the manager offered us a...

Stayed here for two nights and what a spot! Beautiful views over the river, and we had a room with a balcony to enjoy what has been amazing spring weather! Lovely food and we had good service, look forward to going back.

We stayed here for two nights, beautiful location and we had a room with a balcony which was very nice. The service however was awful. The second night there was a queue at the bar, only one person serving, it took 15 minutes to get a drink. The food took an hour. It was ok when it came however. The...
