Excellent atmosphere and service, staff were really attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Food and drinks were great, lovely decor throughout and views of the canal, overall this pub is really on point. Well worth a visit.

Went with a friend before starting a canal boat holiday. The meal we had was very good. The two young waitresses were attentive and friendly.
