Great beer garden, average food, grumpy service

As we were leaving the always excellent Boathouse a few days ago, we saw a sign for Jacksons Boat so as I was in the vicinity on my own, I decided to give it a try. I was impressed with the sizeable beer garden which clearly was a big attraction for those with children and/or dogs. There was an... read more

Lovely beer garden for in the summer. The pub itself is very dated and I wouldn't have food here, but its great as a stop off for a sneaky pint on a long walk with the dogs!

The staff are more friendly but could be better. with some training and thought it could become even better. on saying that i would go there again...

Visited today with friends we were a large table and ordered seperatlg but asked for the good to come out all together. Our food came out over an hour later sporadically and everything we ordered was wrong. The waitress was the most miserable rude person I've come across. In re end I sent my food back and just asked for... More

I've always loved this pub, first went there as a child with my father in the sixties, after catching tadpoles in the brook on what was the old farm. Spent a lot of time in "The Boat" in my youth, a great pub that brings back lots of happy memories for me. Visited today with my son and daughter, (its... More

Went for a family meal but left after 10 minutes. On entering the lady behind the bar glared at us but we found a table and sat down. My husband went to the bar to order drinks and get the menu. Whilst standing waiting, at a pretty empty bar, a customer (who looked like a regular) walked up and was... More

Just popped in here after a long walk with the dogs. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the beer garden had been modernised with brand new benches. We decided to try the food and it was far far better than we had expected. I had the steak & ale pie and the accompanying gravy was absolutely delicious! It was... More

A sunny midweek lunch for three. Gorgous day, not too busy when we arrived. Food took an age to arrive but we were in no rush so that was fine. A number of groups with young children who seemed to be getting stressed after a wait for food. Only seemed to be one waiter who was trying his best to... More

Lovely day to sit in garden. Pub has been refurbished but still lots of shouty signs on what you can and can't do. Our food not available, no apology, no urgency to serve food, lots of sulky service.
