We went to this restaurant with a group for a Christmas celebration meal yesterday evening. (It was in a lovely location next to the canal & must be an ideal venue on light summer evenings with some outside seating overlooking the canal.) The upstairs room was beautifully decorated and the tables looked really pretty. Everyone was happy with their food... More

Ate here recently and ordered one of the sandwiches at the bar, The young man who took my order was a bit short, I had concerns about the new parking system so I made sure my registration mark was correctly noted on the system. Food was excellent, arrived in good time and the sandwich came with some very nice chips.... More

My family and I visited after a long absence and were really impressed with the food. We had the burgers, they were amazing and the chips were double cooked- excellent. We were really happy and vowed to return. The new week, we returned and had the over cooked chicken, chips that come out of the freezer, and coleslaw with grain... More

Lovely pub, lovely food, lovely staff. They always have events and things advertised, with a great quiz on a Monday. Booking for that is essential. The food is always good and you have a great atmosphere either upstairs or in the main bar area, Lovely open fire in winter, lovely outdoor space on the canal in the summer. Winner winner... More

Very busy & good atmosphere but the food on both occasions was a bit overcooked & dry like it had been cooked earlier & kept hot.

This is my current local. It has a really tasty menu, comparable to any restaurant, of British Food. Good selection of beers, though it would be great if they got in a few more Belgian beers. I could not ask for a better local. The staff are friendly and they always make an effort with themed nights. If they could... More

Recently visited this pub for the first time to have dinner with friends and family. Reasonable pub with good food and drink. Location does it for summer months right by canal.. Apsley Railway Station is 100 meters away! Top floor preferred for eating as downstairs was extremely noisy and busy. Average price for food and I would not call it... More

This is a nice pub that sits on Apsley Lock, they offer a range of good drinks and nicely priced semi-gastropub food.

We used to go to the paper mill quite regularly and stopped when the service got too slow. Last month we decided to give it another try and took my elderly Aunt there for a meal and drinks as a treat. It turned out to be a pleasant visit and she really enjoyed herself. Today I have received a £100... More

Hello Lynette, As you may have heard there were a large number of tickets issued in error by the Parking Company that runs the Car Park behind the pub. Even though the bar staff had inputted a number of customers registrations for them on the system, the system was not running correctly and hence you were issued a ticket. I... More
