I really hate to give bad reviews but here goes. On the plus side it's a lovely place in a lovely location. Upon arrival my partner and I sat outside in the patio area. As with most places we were given menus and asked if we wanted to order drinks. I told the waitress I was ready to order food already but she seemed confused and asked for my credit card, she mentioned something about a "tab" but I just wanted to eat and pay, or visa versa! She took my drink order and walked away. After about 4/5 minutes I went in search of someone willing to take my food order which another waitress did. The food took about 30-40 minutes to arrive which for a gastro pub is a rather long time. 2 minutes longer and I would have left. It was a weekday afternoon and far from packed. I hope my comments help you improve but I will definitely not be returning with such slow service. One more thing, I ordered the shepherd's pie which was tasty but lacking in any vegetable accompaniment, quite unusual!

Very poor service, will never go again. We went there for a coffee and some breakfast with my inlaws and our little girl of 3. We waited for good 30 minutes but the waitress kept ignoring our table even after my husband went into the pub to call her and got told "I come in a minute for the order". After 10 more minutes we left very disappointed. They could even be bothered to notice we were leaving, one of the waitress saw us and didn't even say a word. Very appealing.

Delicious dessert and pleasant service. We had a small walk to the riverside and decided to have small snack. We tried out this place and the desserts were quite nice. The presentation of dessert is good. the service was pleasant. I had no issue with this place so far. Shall check out the main course one day if possible.

The Bishop is a bit of an oddball. Comfortable armchairs and a cool interior is off-set by the he cost of drinks. Definitely a bit pricey. You know when things are going to get expensive when the food menu is a single sheet with a fancy script; you know this means £13 - £15 for a burger, and upward of £16 for everything else. Still, it's next to the river and on a sunny day, that's a plus. I would like to give it a star rating just a tad more positive than 'okay'.

Popped in for a beer while in the area. Great views over the river with a good atmosphere. Friendly staff made it an enjoyable sojourn.
