I booked a table last minute and despite them being busy they were so helpful and easy going. We got there and received such a warm and friendly welcome. The place was spotlessly clean and the decor just seemed to fit with the style of restaurant. Throughout our meal the staff were friendly and pleasant and nothing was too much... More

Popped in for lunch after a walk on the canal and although it was quiet we had an excellent lunch. The place is very clean and tidy , even though dogs are welcome. Great service and quality of food and a reasonable price. Will return!

I'd certainly recommend this pub, it has an excellent quality of food and decent beer too. There is a garden with vast space for adults and families with children. Inside it seems to be dog friendly in one half of the pub and the other half is a restaurant set up to cater for couples, families and parties. The services... More

Great evening, polite and efficient staff, good food (for a New Year's Eve) and good service. Also great company and musical entertainment. This is a regular restaurant for us and come recommended, particularly in recent times. Whilst there have been minor problems, they are always more than happy to sort them out to the customer's satisfaction.

Lovely food but a slight hiccup with the children's food, also no service between plates being put down and finishing our meal. Would still recommend, just think there are a few tweeks to be looked at, overall really nice.

We visited recently as a group of work colleagues having a Chrismas lunch. The food was lovely and I can highly recommend the chicken pie. The service was slow but I don't mind that if the food is good when it arrives and it was. My only issue was the atmosphere, it was quiet as it was a Monday lunch... More
