We have passed this venue a couple of times and were very impressed by its location and external appeal. However on actually visiting for a meal it turned out to be a disappointment. Our food was best described "as filling a hole" and little else, it was greasy and not very tasteful. The drinks are okay but why were empty... More

This is the second time I have stayed here, and there will definitely be a third time. The rooms are lovely and roomy and want for nothing. Tea coffee facilities, TV, hairdryer, complimentary toiletries and bottles of water. The food served in the pub restaurant is very good especially the deserts, and a nice selection of wines. Breakfast is included... More

Good cider and a Cumberland Ale but our starters of prawn cocktail and mozzarella & tomato were disasters. Mains of beef ale pie and ham & eggs were edible. The staff were very good but food let them down.

Just been to the Crewe and Harpour. This pub has been beautifully refurbished since we last visited. The menu was very average typical pub food and more expensive than it was before. So we were interested in the food. I ordered the rotisserie chicken which was ok and chose the vegetable option to go with it and the jacket potatoes.... More

Lunch with a friend and her young daughter. Excellent menu reasonably priced and served quickly by friendly efficient staff. Children made very welcome and a good child's menu. Large car park and plenty of seating outside - be aware that the road runs between the building and the grass seating area and the river is at the bottom. Lovely place... More

We where seated on a round table so there was plenty of room for our party of 4 adults and 1 child under 5 years old. The pub has just recently been refurbished to make it look clean and modern. On arrival there where very few other customers In the pub (maybe around another 6 or 7 people) but we... More
