Arrived slightly early but seated straight away I. The restaurant area and immediately offered water for the table. When the waitress came to take our order, it was a completely... More

Last visited a few months ago for lunch, when the food and service were excellent. So just attended a private function/dinner - the service and quality were of the same high standard, which made for a really enjoyable evening. Based on this standard I would have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant.

Stayed for 1 night with dinner and breakfast. My husband and myself had a fantastic stay...The room was huge.. one of the biggest I have had. Lovely big comfortable bed and river view. A lovely touch was a Bose speaker in the room... perfect for a pre-dinner drink looking over the river. We used the spa which had all we... More

We ate here both Friday and Saturday night. The food was excellent and a great choice. There were also specials to choose from. The staff were friendly and the service was first class. It was busy there on both nights with a lovely atmosphere

Having stayed in the Captain's Club for a few nights I made use of the restaurant on two occasions. I am horribly fussy when it comes to food and service and I absolutely cannot fault the Captain's Club on both fronts. The food is fresh, tasty and very reasonably priced; and there is lots of it. The service is attentive... More

I've eaten here on a number of occasions and today's lunch was just as good (really good!) as expected. The food and service always live up to expectations and the setting is marvellous by the river. Even on a cold winter day like today. They don't have masses of parking but we have always found a space. Highly recommend.

I've been here to meet friends on numerous occasions and the service is appalling! I only go back as the outlook over the river is nice and there's usually parking. There seems to be a high staff turnover and staff are far from attentive. Overpriced and shoddy
