We'd tried this place before about 6 years ago and it really disappointed. It changed hands and we tried it again about 2 months ago and we thought it might have gotten to the point where the price-points were warranted. We went again yesterday and it's back to terrible. Terrible service, food had either run out or they couldn't be bothered to fill the bowls with the right ingredients or, in the case of my partners chip bowl, not at all. My advice, go up the road to the boathouse, pay about two dollars more, perhaps wait 5 mins for a seat and have a brilliant meal.

We have visited many times and were a bit disappointed last night. The service was really inattentive and the food not nearly as good as on previous visits. We hope this was just a 'bad night' as we love having the Bower restaurant around the corner as our local.
