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.

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.

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.
