About The Blue River Cafe
The Blue River Café is situated on the banks of the river Thames and is the ideal place for customers to enjoy a long leisurely lunch or dinner looking out at the activity along the river.
We offer a warm welcome and great service along with excellent food at a reasonable price. We welcome families and our Sunday Carvery is a firm favourite with our regular guests.
Nice eating venue when staying in the hotel, Great menu variety Chicken burger was superb , not too busy in the week
Very nice.very fresh looking restaurant
We opted to for the carvery and was pleasantly surprised at the choices on offer, all of which was extremely tasty and perfectly cooked. We were serenaded by the resident pianist which made the atmosphere most enjoyable.
Visited The Blue River Café for the Sunday carvery. The food was good. the waiting staff were lovely and there was a pianist playing which created a lovely atmosphere. We had a table by the window so could look out over the Thames. One of our party has a severe garlic allergy and the carvery chef was fantastic, knew exactly what was in/on all of the food and a substitution made quickly, without fuss and at no extra charge. It was an enjoyable meal and I couldn't believe how quiet it was!
Service good as always
The food and service was top quality. Unfortunately it was very quiet in the restaurant and extremely cold.
Disappointed with the drink service. Food was lovely but room was very cold.
We were the only people in there when we arrived and it took over half an hour to even order. We had to request children’s menus despite there being 3 children at the table. Service was slow, and there was no atmosphere. The lady who took us to our table didn’t smile once. Won’t be going back.
Made the booking online and it was all confirmed, but there was no record of this when we arrived at the restaurant. We were still able to dine, but not sure how the link to me booking online and that reservation reaching the hotel, failed.
It was empty which was surprising as food was lovely. Enjoyed the evening nonetheless.
Service was woeful, burger on a slate is unacceptable use a plate, chips cooked in filthy oil, not good and the hotel was inadequate also.
Relaxed Sunday Lunch enjoyed the Great Value Carvery. Three meats to choose and fresh vegetables - good location overlooking the river.
Everything was great until we came to pay, we had to wait half an hour, small problem so keep up the good work.
Second visit in 4 weeks, certainly a great improvement -under new management - would recommend giving it a try
Good food,keen prices.
Big improvement, stopped going for a while but now will certainly go again
Food and service really are good. This is slightly let down by the place being a little tatty and untidy. However, overall very good and we'll be returning soon.
No record of our booking on arrival, fortunately the restaurant could still accommodate us.
Very slow service, food was cooked well but was cold upon delivery to our table. Drinks were ordered but never came. It wasn't worth a complaint but it wasn't exactly fantastic. The food had all the flavours but I think it was let down by sitting in the window for an extended period of time. The restaurant wasn't even busy either so the chef(s) are being done an injustice for their food.
Thoroughly enjoyed food, drinks, service and atmosphere will return soon. Website needs updating as kids eat free
Veg was hard meat was like chewing leather we went on a sunday for roast the only nice thing was the choc brownie. We waited agaes for driinks but our waitress was amazing and was so embarrased that we had to wait for drinks
Great location, very nice Roast Dinner with a smile and good service. Well done Thank you . See you again soon
We will definitely book a table again
Had an excellent lunch with 5 other ladies. We chose from the lunch menu, all v happy with our lovely meals (compliments to the chef & kitchen staff )The waitress & bar lady were v attentive & checked regularly that everything was alright. Good value for money, great service, beautiful outlook overlooking the river. We'll definitely be eating there again & will not hesitate to recommend to others. Thankyou v much
