We were warmly welcomed into a friendly atmosphere. There is a good selection of ales which we took advantage of while choosing our meal from a wide selection of reasonably priced food. The service was prompt and friendly, and afterwards we were able to sit outside to relax by the adjacent canal.

We have ate here several times and always had fantastic service as well as food. The portion sizes are massive and incredibly good value. We recently managed to get to sample the roast dinner having failed to get a booking on several occasions. It was superb.

Have eaten here a number of times, can say never had a poor meal. Extensive menu, larger portions. The service is always very good with most staff being there for a number of years. Highly recommended

The food here is always suburb. The menu could be changed a little as it's been the same for years. The portions are huge and the cocktails are delicious!

Food was good and so was the service. Soup and appetizer would be enough if one wasn't super hungry. The mains are a good size. Well worth it and would definitely recommend.
