    Service a bit slow. £6.50 for 250ml ave wine excessive. Shld have been asked what I'd like to drink fairly soon after I sat down. Object to an 'optional 12.5%' ser charge which you have to opt out of.

    Clad in boaty timbers and furnished with cast iron pillars, a stainless steel hover bar and a decked verandah, it is perfect for watching the world float by.

    If you like a quiet night out, avoid Saturdays, when it doubles as a busy, noisy cocktail bar, but for a bargain check in for the lunch special.

    Sea bass was excellent and they did not skimp on the seafood risotto. Service was great on a Sunday eve. Would def go again

    Not had a bad meal here. Minute steak with frites an absolute steal for £12. Service has always been excellent on every visit.

    Wouldn't bother with this place. Over-priced and incredibly slow service. Lamb was supposed to be pink; completely over-cooked!

    Pretty bland food, service was reasonably quick, altho only 3 other tables with people on - took a good half an hour to order though.

    Right on the waterfront of the floating harbour, this is a former boathouse designed, it is said, by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

    When you order a cappuccino, you get a little choc truffle with it :-)

    Beef screwed was horrible. Couldn't eat it! :( for a signature dish it was quite disappointing!

    They make the music far too loud way earlier than is appropriate for a restaurant.

    They know why they asked if we were finished and not if we liked. Don't go.
