Had dinner here few weeks ago. Sat outside with a fantastic view of the river side. Staff were great and attentive throughout. Had the fish and chips and was superb, done in an almost curried batter, was delicious! Good value too, would come back!

A large group of us had booked the entire upstairs for the evening meal on day one of our conference near by. We had all pre ordered so it shouldn't have been much of an issue. There was approximately 50 of us upstairs but they...More

I'm a bit disappointed. This used to be one of the nicer places to eat in Bristol but if our brunch this morning was anything to go by, it's really gone downhill. Stained and chipped crockery. Dead flowers and rusty salt and pepper pots on...More

We would like to stay with our two children and so woukd need a suite for four people. Ideally I would not want all of us sleeping in the same room so is there an option for the double to be in one room and the sofa bed/2 single beds to be in a differntbroom?
