Went for Chinese at the recommendation of our B&B and wasn't disappointed. The place was packed but they managed to find us a table! The food was excellent and very flavourful. Highly recommend!

Great choice of mainly Chinese food, served hot and fresh, good portions and really helpful friendly staff. No issues when I checked for allergens in the food. Thoroughly enjoyed eating here with a view of the river. Car park on site.
