The waitress was very attentive and when a small mistake was made she brought us a free drink each, we hadn't even complained.
Some heaters in the marquee would've been nice but we were given blankets to use. The food was nice.

The app to Eder food isn’t very good. It doesn’t give a description and you can’t choose if it’s wrap or sandwich or if you want cheese on your burger or not. We ordered 6 meals the first 4 came really quick, the fifth one came 10 minutes after the first 4 and the last meal was forgotten about and so were our sides. In all it took 45 minutes and 2 attempts to get it correct, but staff were helpful and apologetic. I think it may just be teething problems as they haven’t been open for long.

A lovely place to go, very friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately the fryer was broken when we went which limited the menu but what we did have was very nice.
A little more could be done to make the marquee look prettier but otherwise a great location

Booked dinner just after lockdown. Good outdoor space with a large marquee set up by the river not too chilly. Thought the whole process was very safe. Food was good.
