I help my annual staff Xmas party last night in the rowing club. The manager, Jenny, was extremely helpful before the event regarding food and drinks. On the night the bar staff couldn't have been more accommodating and polite for which thank you. We will be back next year if you will have us. Thank you.

Had our team Xmas lunch on December 21st for the third year running. The decor here is really nice with a warm welcome and a beautiful Christmas tree as a centre point. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. We ate from the pre-ordered Christmas menu and all of us were very happy with our starters, main courses and desserts. The food was delivered in good time, by friendly staff and it really couldn’t be faulted.... We’ll almost certainly visit again next year for Xmas dinner and will get back as often as we can throughout the year An excellent lunch! Thanks very much indeed
