    Been 3 times now for food and can’t understand why finished plates are not cleared away till you leave. Also, my family couldn’t really understand why full menus weren’t available. Eg. 3 people would have liked fish and chips but it wasn’t available till the evening. There are 3 different times for food! Also, one plate of food wasn’t provided. Would get more custom if food available all day. Otherwise a pleasant afternoon!

    Sunday lunch menu consisted of breakfast items and a choice of five or so wraps and sandwiches. Gluten free options were the sandwich fillings without bread. Didn’t bother asking about cross contamination of gluten. We left and ate elsewhere. A shame because the surroundings were beautiful.

    Staff very polite but service extremely slow 🐌 orders mixed up several times. And missing items of food. Hopefully will improve once open for awhile. Music too loud inside

    Tapas food went cold quickly because dishes it came in were cold. Had to ask twice for burchetta which arrived when we had nearly finished. Would have liked a receipt to as you can't check the bill

    The Wharf itself will be lovely when finished and the gardens are planted etc. We ate at R. Whitworth restaurant. All the paper menus were confusing . One menu would be better. The food was fine but more like a large snack than a meal. The staff were nice and the decor very authentic and complimented the old building. Hopefully things will improve in time. The payment system needs sorting as we had to pay for drinks and meals separately.

    It was a "casual dining" experience. The mains, which are on the website were not available. On inspection it actually say so on the website. We didn't see the note "coming soon" when we booked and were disappointed that there were no mains available. The venue is beautiful and the service was good but drinks took a long time to arrive.

    The venue is stunning, beautiful & evidently a lot of thought & heart has gone into it. Starters were beautiful, mains were OK & staff were OK (except for the lady in orange who was an absolute delight!!) We'll definitely be back as it just felt like teething problems & we really enjoyed ourselves overall.

    Booked for the restaurant which has a different menu but was given the Saw Mill menu. Not a huge amount of choice, am lactose intolerant, asked about rolls but was offered gluten free which I declined! We were able to hear ourselves chatting as it was a meet up with friends not seen for a long time! Not a lot of parking spaces but could see work going on outside hopefully for more! Would recommend it to friends

    A new venue, recently opened so still finding their feet. The buildings look as though they will be really appealing when refurbishment is complete. Staff teething problems which I think will be resolved as time goes on. Food was value for money but really objected to paying £19 for a bottle of white wine. Overall a pleasant visit.

    What a lovely refurbishment to the old wharf and buildings! The restaurant menu is not up and running at the moment but the bar choice is great, the 5 plates for £20 were just delicious. If I would make 1 constructive piece of feedback, I would say that the homemade coleslaw (slaw) needs a binding agent such as mayonnaise as it’s just too dry without. Will definitely be adding Finsley Wharf to my regular haunts list.

    The food was not as advertised and very small portions. I ordered a croque monsieur and got a slightly warm cheese and ham sandwich. It was supposed to come with coleslaw but it was just cabbage which had been shredded to death, no dressing, no other vegetables. Bizzare. The chip potion was tiny, its £3.50 for less chips than in a happy meal. Everything on the menu sound lovely, but you don't get whats on the menu. The service wasn't the best either. Had to ask for cutlery, the table to be cleaned even though we'd booked reservations, and had to ask to order food and drinks. The venue was lovely, there is parking to the rear and you can walk of the food along the canal.

    Staff very friendly. Thought the choice of on menu was a bit snacky, would be good when other meals are included. You need a drinks menu and wine list, the waiter had to go and check on prices of wine. No orange cordial available for my granddaughter. No wine cooler. Overall the meal was ok, but feel attention to detail by the owners is needed.

    I know it has a modern no frills look but it looked and felt cold and no ambience to clinical. Food ok, think it’s a bit cheeky charging extra for scoop of ice cream on desserts other restaurants we frequent desserts come as a package. We would eat here again. The waiters were fabulous

    We are not familiar with the area, the post code on the website was not recognised on our sat nav, we phoned numerous occasions to get directions but no answer, went to an answer phone and then someone picked the phone up and put it down straight away. We drove around and asked people but no one new where it was. Very disappointing as we were looking forward to the evening.

    We have used Open Table twice this year . Aberdunant Hotel and Finsley Wharf. On both occasions our table was occupied .On both occasions the restaurants were apologetic but you are letting these businesses down. Why ??
