We had already eaten lunch elsewhere and stopped here for coffee and cake. The outdoor area is very peaceful with water views. Service was efficient and the cake was delicious. If I was in the area again, I'd definitely have lunch here. Large tea selection.

Beautiful menu,food ,wine and service. Who would think such a classy restaurant in such a quaint village on the river. Great service and assistance marrying food with wine or wine with food. Lovely staff only to happy to assist. Walked away feeling we had been to a special place.
