Top notch food. Service not so

Having visited several times we were back on a busy and full Saturday evening. Showed to our table on time after a drink at the bar. Menu interesting as usual. We sat down and waited. Seeing as we were given menus at the bar we already knew our choices. And waited. After 15 minutes we were... read more

Excellent service -meals are fantastic though I do have to force myself to not have the wonderful Fish and chips every time I go (the best I have ever tasted ). My husband loves the choice of ales and I love the easy access for both my husband and mother (who have mobility problems). Visit at least once a month... More

Our vegetarian friends had actually told us about this building because apparently it is supposed to be haunted! Luckily we didn't see any ghosts! My family visited on a Sunday evening for birthday celebrations. Previously we had tried several times to eat here without booking but had been unlucky. At 8pm on Sunday, there was plenty of room - but... More

Decided to visit this Inn after hearing about the quality of its food. We visited at lunchtime and to be honest the food was very disappointing. It had very little taste, was salty. The decor was pleasant enough and the staff friendly. However we noticed a waitress dropped cutlery on the open floor and then proceeded to pick it up... More

Called here for a quick tea with our dog whilst our sons were at football training. Sat outside in a lovely sunny area with nice rattan tables. Service was great. Staff friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Will be back again soon.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us and I can only hope that your son has football practice in the area again soon. I can't promise the weather I'm afraid but I hope it will be as good an...

We spent two weeks on our narrowboat. So we visited on our outward journey and on our return journey. Can't be a better recommendation than that! We had Fish & chips the first visit and I had steak & stilton salad yum! Second time round pork chop and same salad as it was so yum! Also had crumble which was... More

Dear Rome at Easter What can I say except I wish your boat was moored here. Thank you for visiting us twice on your holiday and for such a great review. There is also a lot of work happening around our canal to make it more accessible in the near future, SUMBA has already improved mooring points and barbecues. Next... More
