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.

We had an excellent Sunday lunch. Food was lovely and the service was attentive but not overpower. Excellent value for money, will come again.

I booked the table for a party of 8 friends for our annual reunion, so I was naturally concerned that I'd made the right choice of restaurant. I needn't have worried; the food was excellent and so was the service. The location made it especially appropriate as we were here for the Bristol Harbour Festival.

Nice setting by the river in Bristol, good service, interesting menu and food nicely cooked.

Very nice place looking out of the huge glass windows, but nice and cool inside. Friendly staff, good food. Only gripe is my broccoli was under done and standard instead of Romanesco as described.
