good fast food, slow (bar)service

Had not been in here since I was given a grilled tuna steak that would not have been out of place in a sushi bar. My friend took me here and the guys behind the bar were slow. However , the manager came and sped things up. That won't help in the future as speed is not in those barmen's... read more

Range of food was good but sadly lacking in light meals or snacks. Service excellent and good parking makes this pub a good occasional bet

The three of us had a lovely meal, apart from my marinaded rib-eye of pork, which was tough. What sets this place apart is the speed with which I was offered another meal, and an acknowledgement that my complaint was justified. Well done!

Really nice pub in a lovely, relaxing setting. I've dined here on several occasions, inside and outside by the canal. Food is always hot and tasty with a good selection on the menu. Puddings are MMMmmouth-wateringly yummy :-)

Visited here with a group of about 25 ramblers. We preordered our food before our walk, and when we returned by the time we had all ordered our drinks and sat down at our reserved table the food started to be served. We were very impressed by this efficiency. The staff are friendly. The food was tasty. The pub is... More

Four friends and I moored a holiday canal boat here after the lock for lunch in the canal side garden. Beautiful interior and impressive decked area, we ordered from a broad menu and were served by very pleasant and friendly staff. The food was delicious and well presented. We're very glad we stopped.
