Recently had Sunday lunch with our friends. Was offered a window table looking down the estuary which wasn’t expected. Amazing views. Food was brilliant as was the service. We all had a great time. Thank you to everyone for making our visit so pleasurable.

As anticipated an interesting drive to the Coombe Cellars. Lovely view of the estuary, giving a good start to our booking. Table was as required, by the window with no muzak.
Drinks and food orders were taken with friendly, knowledgeable efficiency. All went well until we finished our starter - there was an incredibly long wait for our main courses. The food was delicious and hot, but why the wait? Our waiter, Matt, was very apologetic about the wait, explaining the issues surrounding orders being submitted to the kitchen from a number of stations, and unfortunately, not having enough staff available. All quite understandable, but it would have been useful if we could have been kept more up-to-date on the progress of the food.

The evening started by us not getting a table with a view. Fair enough I suppose but we did say it was an anniversary and not much effort was made to accommodate. After that, a total of six items that we ordered we ‘sold out’ leaving to my wife not having a main course at all. It was a Friday evening and the venue wasn’t even that busy. Service was slow, thankfully our waitress was ace and couldn’t apologise enough. By end of evening, manager had to apologise personally and provided a 25% discount to total bill.

lovely spot with fantastic views. A very creative menu and I fully recommend this place to anyone wanting a good meal but you need to book in advance and preferably not through Opentable as its not a guaranteed table if you do book through here!

Stunning scenery, but food a little disappointing, particularly the "roasts" as we were expecting traditional carved roast pork, chicken and beef and instead were served belly pork, chicken on the bone and steak. The twice cooked chipswere soggy and unappetising.The staff were pleasant but more accurate menu information would have been helpful.

Lovely weather and good company made for a pleasant evening but not the best culinary experience.

After a few bad reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were very attentive and the food came in a reasonable time and was hot and well presented. The setting is fantastic. I just hope they can keep it up.

I was not looking forward to going as have had too many bad experiences in the past. My granddaughter wanted to go so reluctantly agreed. I am glad I did as I couldn't fault the food, the waitress was extremely friendly, we did not wait long between courses and we had a window seat. Perfect evening. Hope this is the norm now as frightened to recommend it to anyone. Will come again and see if it is still as good.

The seats was dirty , the wine we had to ask for twice when it arrived the waitress didn't even undo the bottle she just plonked on the table no tasting it before hand , my meal was sent back twice so I didn't eat after that , and the gentlemen toilet was smelly I was told they had trouble with the drains at the weekend even so this was the Thursday after and not a air freshener in site , this was the final straw , I think you should definitely not be recommending this establishment at all and it's the first time I've been served by a waitress with a dirty black tea shirt on and wearing jeans so no I will not be going back or recommending it to any friends at all
