In summary, overpriced average food. Drinks expensive as well. £15.95 for a risotto (vegetarian) is excessive - spring onion, mushroom and roast butternut squash. Ploughmans was £14.95, but did have a choice of 3 things to select, but come on, slightly over the top. Location...More

Service poor, food overpriced. When finally served, we had burned, dried up chicken, poor quality sausages with unappetizing mash. No ambience and dirty tables. Only good thing was the view. Would not eat here again.

Good food and nice beer, but poor staffing. No offer to help carry drinks to the table, no cutlery brought out - we had to go and find it. Nice location. Could definitely be enhanced by some service improvements. A shame.
