My husband and I booked a table for our first wedding anniversary, staff were really lovely and welcoming, they were prompt with taking our orders, filled our water glasses as soon as they were half empty, we had a prawn starter and the lamb carvery for main meal, all of which tasted amazing and cooked just how we like it, we then had the strawberry cheese cake for desert and I have to say it was the best I have ever tasted, we both highly recommend dining there, it was a lovely afternoon watching the boats go by as we were eating our lovely meal, also there was a pianist playing lovely music, so all in all it was a really nice experience.
