Bel has really started to go downhill.

Had evening meal at Shillingford Bridge a couple of weeks ago, food good when it arrived but the service was appalling - had to wait over an hour for the starter, had to pop back to the boat for a packet of nuts. They seem to be under-staffed, evidence of which is that nobody is interested in collecting the £20 mooring fee - I paid as I went to book a table but the boat behind didn't pay.
Ah, just like the old days! New management swept clean for a little while then!

Just got me one of these:
Get ready for lots of reviews in the next few months!
Lunch at Boulters yesterday, intended to go by boat but conditions prevented that so went by car instead. We had the lunch menu at £19.95 for three courses and it was the best food we have eaten for some time with good service and reasonable wine prices (£15 50 for a very drinkable red). Will definitely go again - by boat hopefully !
Moored up on the free pontoon, presentable this time.
Went downstairs, to be told it was full, but they served food upstairs in the bar too.
Ordered Burger and thrice cooked chips, served quickly and cost £9.95
Tasted pretty rubbish, highly overseasoned burger, undercooked, and underwhelming chips.
6/10 tops, everything else was OK, but would have enjoyed a McDonalds more
Scand 32 Atlantic
Tip: stay away from burgers and have some real food :-)
