Very poor service, never asked if we wanted more drinks, waitresses stood watching us and holding their car keys while we were trying to finish our meals. Only informed when we asked for the dessert menu that food stopped at 9 so we couldn’t have anything, not even offered tea and coffee. The room was being set up for breakfast while we were eating, this is all happening at 9.30 on a Friday night not a good night out.

Sat out on the balcony area. Décor generally very tired, windows in serious need of attention and good clean up, cobweb removal etc badly needed doing. Had to ask for table to be cleaned.

Basic but clean, comfortable rooms, very friendly and helpful staff and great value for money. Food is delicious and very reasonably priced but the drinks are expensive.

Overall a nice evening. Fantastic location, shame it appeared a little run down/neglected. Food was good, staff very friendly and efficient. Not sure if it’s a restaurant, pub, bar or night club, but we had a good visit!

I was put on a table which turned out to be in middle of dance floor whilst a disco was on. Food was ok but slow, basic pub food.

Definitely not the best carvery. Carvery was Luke warm. Beef wasn't great. Carrots rock hard. Such a shame that its gone down hill. Roast Dinner used to be lovely. Guy that served our drinks was very pleasant and chatty

Appalling. I had “homemade” pie which clearly wasn’t homemade and was almost an empty case. My wife was served the wrong meal entirely; the right meal wa subsequently served: the pork had been previously cooked and then reheated so the the breading was tough.

Very nice waiter and we had 2 glasses of Prosecco bought out at the end of our meal. I had mentioned in my booking that it was our wedding anniversary and I thought that was a nice touch. Will come again

We visited The Blue River café several years ago and thought we would return for a Sunday roast. Whilst the food was really good we found that the service was poor compared to other times we had visited and the café certainly tired looking.

We had the carvery, the pork was dry and the beef very fatty. Some of the vegetables were dried up too. It’s a nice setting by the river and we had a lovely evening when we came for a Xmas party night. But the carvery was a little disappointing.

Our food was lovely and our waiter was pleasant. However we felt that service was very slow (I can appreciate you were busy that day but it wasn't just us that received slow service.)
