What a location! both inside and outside seating, great views. We were there for coffee and scones, but could see so many breakfasts being served, both large portions and comprehensive in content. Everything looked good.

Great place for some straightforward British food with good consistent service. Eat your lunch or snack overlooking the river, which on a hot day makes it stunning. Never had a bad time.
