Blue Thai Kitchen and Portivo Lounge are also easy walking distance.

Large Groups

Sebz (upstairs), Nepalese Chef, Veranda Lounge, Frankie &
Benny’s (taxi), Nepalese Chef and the White Horse (taxi), can take large groups comfortably.

Great Settings

The White Horse is on the banks of the Severn as is The Wharf House, great in the summer for eating
outside. Similarly, Veranda Lounge and Greek on the Docks are set overlooking the

Cafe Rene, The Fountain Inn and Raikes House are steeped in
history and their buildings have lots of character.

So Thai is set in a fabulous gunpowder cellar.
