Lunch on the balcony with a nice view over the river lifts this restaurant from average. The food was good and I enjoyed the berry cider on tap. Dont think Ill rush back tho, I felt it was a little overpriced.

We have been here twice and can't fault the food or service. Walk up the lane to gain entry via the lift. Well worth it.

Absolutely loved the food. We had pork belly and mac'n'cini and I don't think I've ever had them any better before. Definitely recommend!

A really big selection of beers to choose from. Most but not all staff know simple facts about the beers. But other than that food is good and beer is cold! Would go back!
