Former boat workers, who often dine here, take delight in the fact that the shell of the building has changed little; with open-beamed ceilings and flagstone floors, classic architecture and contemporary decor blend seamlessly. This is a magnificent meeting place with large open spaces and a few booths flanking the side - the whole place oozes charm.
