    Lovely, calming atmosphere. The outside view is disappointing though as it's just buildings and a dirty river below. The afternoon tea had three tiers. Two finger deserts, the middle had 4 finger sandwiches (which was the equivalent of one full sandwich) and the bottom had a scone and two finger cakes. Although it all tasted lovely, it was not worth £23. i can understand including a service charge when there is a large table of guest but to add it in for two guests is a bit cheeky. Overall, it was a treat for an elderly lady who doesn't go out much.

    Good ambience . Menu not extensive but enough choice for our party of 5 . Food was excently cooked and presented . Portions on the small side but of good quality . Staff friendly and not intrusive . Overall pleasant experience.

    I booked for a special occasion for afternoon tea for 6 people and I was extremely disappointed that the service wasn't great I had to chase up a glass of champagne after waiting 10 minutes and no sign of it arriving and I thought the afternoon tea itself was poor value for money. And I was under the impression the tea would be unlimited and we only had two pots between 4 of us so had to request more. I'm not one for complaining but due to it being a very special occasion fir my family I feel let down.

    Went for afternoon Tea with my family. Staff were friendly and polite. They were accommodating re my sons specific preference for just chicken sandwiches. Had to ask for spoons to eat one of the desserts as none were provided Car park was very full would have been very disappointed if could not park I was told I could not reserve a parking space.

    Cakes were exemplary, tea delightful and sandwiches adequate. The restaurant ambience was peaceful and unhurried. We visited the River restaurant on Monday 03 October for afternoon tea. Service was unhurried and timely and the waiting staff courteous and helpful. The only downside was not being directed into the restaurant immediately (from the bar area) as we were asked by a member of the waiyting staff to take a seat in the bar area as 'the restaurant was not yet ready' (we arrived in the bar area at 14.10 hours and our afternoon tea was booked for 14.15 hours). We noticed that other people were going into the restaurant clearly for afternoon tea so we went into the restaurant at 14.15 anyway and were promptly seated.
