We had a really good time at bows the only problem was the pub was having work done on the outside which spoilt it because of the noise. The restaurant had no control over this and that is the only reason the score was low on the ambience. We will add it to the list of places that we like to go to in the future.

Exceptional service and fantastic food. Just a pity that it is over a pub and you have to walk through two pub bars to get to a vary dark stairway to the restaurant, which needs a bit of refurbishment to stop it looking like a local club meeting room. Nevertheless well worth a visit for the food and service alone.
