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.)

We enjoyed the evening very much the food quality was good but the management of the restaurant and bar was poor. At 8.00pm when I arrived I bought a bottle of Sauvignon blanc which was the last bottle you had. We had been asked to preorder our food which we did but when the waiter arrived the kitchen did not have our preorder so we ordered again. My wife asked for a small starter portion or ribs but when it arrived it was a large portion and we were told the kitchen were not doing small portions however after we had finished our meal a waiter came to our table with a small portion. We would have liked a dessert but nobody came to take our order. We enjoyed our evening as we have similar evenings in the past but the management of the restaurant and bar on this occasion was a shambles.

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!

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.
