    We loved the restaurant. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and had a lot of good recommendations for us. Food was excellent and we really enjoyed the whole experience. We will definitely be back !

    Very good dining experience. Staff professional and attentive and food pretty decent. One complaint that the sticky toffee pud was really just a sponge pudding. Wine not too pricey either. However, it's quite a noisy space with high ceilings and no soft furnishings so the noise level got very high. Great views though.

    It was brilliant! We arrived early and sat in the bar and had a glass of prosecco. I accidentally knocked the table and spilled a little bit of our drink on the table. I asked the barman if he had a tissue for me to mop it up. He came with a cloth, wiped it, dried it with another cloth and then very kindly topped up our glasses as we hadn't actually drunk any of it! He was so pleasant. The meal was delicious and the waiters were very attentive and polite.

    Booking the table was easy enough, Restaurant layout was a bit different working with the layout of the old building, food was OK. Good view out over the Thames

    Good food and quite good service - very pleasant location - but overpriced for what it was.

    Enjoyed the meal booked the pre theatre set menu, had a great table over looking the river... order was taken quickly, and starter and main course arrived quickly and were very nice, but dessert took forever and we had to leave before it arrived, which was rather disappointing ( also it was part of my wife's birthday surprise, which just added to the disappointment) overall the food was great and as long as the restaurant is not busy so was the service. Would eat here again but not when I have theatre tickets booked. John Orton
