Harden's survey result
“A long way from anywhere but worth the drive”, say fans of this “lovely spot beside the River Severn”, who hail its “reliably good cooking of high-end fish”. Its ratings were dragged down this year, though, by a couple of mediocre reports: “after several visits I’m baffled by the sky-high score: the food is pleasant enough but not exceptional”.
“The best seafood” can be enjoyed in the dining room – or better still, on the “delightful terrace” – at this venue with “fabulous views” across the Severn. In centuries past it was the site of a ford across the river.
A “great location overlooking the Severn” (“seemingly in the middle of nowhere, with fabulous views”) is matched by “superb” and “elegantly plated” fish dishes at this “modern, bright and light” (but slightly “noisy”) dining room. It’s “best experienced in the summer”, when the “terrace is a great delight”.
Overlooking the River Severn, this “attractive” restaurant-with-rooms “takes some beating” owing to its “delightful staff”, and food with a real “density of flavour” (including fish and shellfish which are “top class”); according to one of its fans, it’s “always excellent”, but “particularly so” of late.
