Arrived late and had a lovely welcome. We had a comfortable stay and fantastic breakfast. Service was fab throughout with nothing too much trouble even when we were late for breakfast. Great location by the river and wished we could have stayed longer

Stayed previously when it was managed by Lynn - refurbished in January and this was the first time I had visited since the refurbishment. Disappointed to say the least. Although the pub has undergone serious improvements in the decor the bedrooms remain unchanged, stained carpets, and very, very hard pillows. We used to get nice biscuits and hot chocolate in...

Nice location by the river. Recently refurbished. Good solid puib grub at a reasonable price and a good range of beers. Fine for a stop after a long walk. The beer garden is a good size and the location is great. Careful when you go out to the beer gharden as you have to cross a lane. Beer garden is... More

Excellent service, food and surroundings. Well worth a visit. Good range of beers and fantastic range of food. Some lovely garden tables in extensive beer garden. Rotisserie was very good - lots of choice and good to see it being cooked. All in all a nice place to eat, drink and take the family.

Fabulous setting now with lovely interior design and décor, an absolutely pleasure to visit. Have visited socially and for meeting purposes and as always, staff polite, friendly and interested. Great menu choice, served promptly and delicious for every meal ordered. Nothing is too much trouble. Great family venue too. Definitely recommend.

We recently stayed in the family room, which was fantastic, lots of room and an lots of character. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Kids loved it and so much space in the room. Beautiful setting right by the river. The only thing letting this hotel down I feel is the food. Dinner was OK, but very simple and they... More

Just eaten there today. We all had a Sunday roast. Took ages to come even though it wasn't busy. Food was dry - we had to ask for more gravy. By the time it came with the side orders mine was cold. Very nice staff though may I add.

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
