A clean & comfortable little restaurant on the quayside overlooking the river. A simple menu but offering wholesome food. Lovely.

A lovely, relaxed, and friendly lunch stop. Amazing location, in a beautiful town. No hot food available in the late afternoon, but the 'Blaa's' (soft, floured white rolls) we're huge, tasty, well stuffed, and more than filled the gap. Importantly, the coffee was hot, and fresh. Modern and clean, housed in a stunning, period building on the river, this is... More

Stopped off for tea and scones in the beautiful morning Sunshine on a Tuesday morning in mid October, lovely outdoor seating area on the waterfront, very friendly and helpful service and very reasonable price for a pot of tea and lovely warm scones, will call again.

Our only regret was that it was only open at weekends at the time of our visit. Very good food, well presented.

Extended stay for a family wedding we enjoyed the best room - 15 - top floor with super views. Breakfasts were superb. Brian and the team were extremely helpful and kindly opened the restaurant - excellent salmon - for ten of us to recharge before hitting Doyle's for a second post wedding Guinness sampling evening.
