Room was very nicely decorated, with comfy bed and modern bathroom and... More

We have visited this restaurant many times and the food is always excellent. Home made steak pie absolutely delicious. The bread, which is also home made, is to die for. Lovely, comfortable surroundings with gorgeous views of the river.

Came here as a half way house meeting point for a family birthday. The food and service was excellent. Couldn't fault a thing. A lovely table in the corner overlooking the river. A very pleasant afternoon all-in-all.

I popped and asked the young lady behind the bar if I could bring in the dogs and was given the green light. We ordered the Guinness and steak pie and it was so tasty. Loads... More

The pub itself is beautifully decorated, indeed, I would say... More
