    Had a great birthday lunch. Lovely location on the river opposite the London eye. Our waitress was fab. Food was delicious and we had free flowing Prosecco. Every time our glasses were empty our waitress was straight over topping us up again. Would totally recommend.

    Great food and ideal location. Staff were attentive but not overpowering. The smoked salmon and beetroot starter was delicious.

    This was probably one of the worst dining experiences I've been too considering the price and location. When we arrived the waiter kept telling us that the menu we'd opted for was a new menu and mentioned other menus that they could offer, which was slightly concerning and thinking back perhaps we should have changed menu, but I'm not so sure that would have changed the quality of the food nor should it matter what menu we choose. The first course was ok and came out in a reasonable time although it did look as though the ingredients had been thrown at the plate. However, the main courses were very disappointing, I had the Battered Cod which was really oily, the mash tasted like it was from a packet and spinach was tasteless. My friends were equally disappointed with their main 'Banger's and Mash', again the mash tasted like it was from a packet. Finally, Desert wasn't great either. Firstly, they took almost 45 mins to arrive and when they did both the 'Eton Mess' and 'Chocolate & Blackberry Fool' were almost indistinguishable from each other bar a sprinkle of meringue on the 'Eton Mess'. When we questioned what had gone into the 'Chocolate & Blackberry Fool' the waiting staff had no idea, I mean you could see there was no chocolate and there were Rasberry's, defiantly no Blackberry's. All in all, not a great dining experience apart from the company.
