Last visited /photos taken: 2018

Review roundup: Not being a vegan I struggled for food that my gluten stomach could literally stomach! But my vegan friend was in heaven! It’s also a great place for those on a health kick with shots that are full of goodness. Or you can drink bubbles at the lovely bar – less full of goodness πŸ˜‚ but a great setting. Brunch is a good compromise if one of you isn’t vegan but if you both are – you’ll love it!

Review roundup: I love this place so much I’ve spent many a birthday lunch & dinner here for myself and friends. Whilst I actually hate white linen table cloths, there is something very special sitting on a sunny day by the river sipping some champers. Equally their indoor is gorgeous- more bustling and busy but still a great choice.
