Drinks were soft drinks, water was brought to the table and we ended the lunch with a pot of coffee.

Our thoughts at the end of a very relaxing lunch (with the odd distraction of a boat arriving at the pontoon which was part of the fabulous view we enjoyed) were that the food & service were excellent....a tiny criticism...the quality of the background music could be improved but the couple running the place deserve success!
