    Didn't like the steak, since asked for a medium, got rare. The pasta with shrimps was ok. Expectations for this place were high, so got disappointed. On the other hand, appetizers were delicious.

    Sit on the balcony when the sun is out for a lovely riverside view. The pork chop with apple slaw & crackling is to die for! Try it!x 😊

    Try Puttanesca Monnachele. They will make veggie version by taking anchovies out.

    You have to pick the right dish here the Meat Antipasti Plank is one of the best dishes.

    Not a lot of people know this: you can now book for any size any time. Go online and see! Except fewer than 6 people on Fri/Sat night.

    Great overall but avoid the walnut tart for pudding as it's boring compared to the other options.

    Try and avoid Christmas Eve, they don 't seem to expect people to come in at lunchtime. No bread, no lamb, they have water though!

    Found the prices expensive for the portion sizes and also a distinct lack of prawns in my prawn linguini. Disappointing...
