Ate here loads of times but wasn't happy with last nights meal, either the fish was still alive and it had eaten most of my chips or there weren't enough potatoes left in the kitchen. The batter on the fish was overdone and was far too crunchy, and there were enough mushy peas on the plate to sink a ship,... More

Over the years I haven eaten here many times, the location is fantastic, but recently the food has not been as nice, very rushed & obviously microwaved. The tall young barman with the beard was very polite & helpful, which seemed to be the asset to the place on my last visit.....

Alison 3333, thank you for your comments, though we are puzzled about your remarks regarding our food since you have not eaten in our establishment 'recently' at all. We understand that the 'tall young barman with the beard' who we really liked too (but unfortunately and regretfully had to 'recently' dismiss due to continued absence issues), is a personal friend...

Ate here twice in one week when travelling past in our canal boat. First time just glad to eat & rest our weary bones, second time to share positive experience with family. Service & food was good (bread & butter pudding very good!), value ok but cask beer excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Ate here again giving it another try after an abysmal visit in February. No better. Son ordered fish and chips. Batter was burned. I had chilli and chips. Chips were gorgeous but chilli was dry and there was loads of liquid at the bottom of the plate so assume it had been microwaved. Location is lovely though and staff are... More

Had steak & Guinness pie, chips and vegetables today - it was served to us outside very quickly - veg & chips were lovely and lots of gravy - shame the pie had been microwaved (not enough either) chunks of steak (chewy) in congealed jelly and soggy pastry. What a shame as the view of the canal was lovely as... More
