    We had a very enjoyable lunch on The Yacht last Friday - the staff were very attentive and good humoured. The start on arrival was quite small and we thought the main course would be the same, but how wrong we were - we had the Rib Eye Steak and Seabass, both were excellent and root vegetables - were supberb and plenty of them. Would certainly go again hopefully with more people on board as the only downside was that is was very quiet at the time we visited 14.30pm, as well as being very cold and windy. We have seen this restaurant to be buzzing in the past.

    I celebrated my 30th birthday. We got a nice table by the window. The service was excellent and the food lovely. Recommend getting here in the evening as it is much quieter on the water. Great view.

    Great views from your table. Food choices on Groupon deals somewhat limited. Steak available for a premium. I enjoyed my pork belly. My friends opted for steak. One found it too chewy and to the credit of the restaurant team they did not take the extra fee. They would have brought another steak if my friend wanted so fair play to them. Overall we enjoyed the meal and the service team were professional

    A great afternoon tea experience for a special occasion. Sandwiches, savoury tart, scones jam & cream, and lovely delicate cakes left us all very fulfilled. Staff were very attentive & friendly. The setting is a bonus with all the activity on the river. In all a very pleasant experience, thank you.

    Booked afternoon tea, 3pm to 5pm slot. At 4.20pm the waitress asked if we had finished. At 4.30 pm the manager asked if we could leave as a party of 100 were arriving for dinner. We hadn’t finished so left cakes uneaten. I had asked for plain sandwiches due to a dietary issue but didn’t get any.
