My husband and I sometimes meet my sister here for lunch as it is half way between olur Bedfordshire home and hers near Gloucester - on this occasion to celebrate my birthday. It is a warm friendly place with delightful;and attentive staff. The belly of pork was slightly bland but the beer battered fish and chips was quite superb. As for the sweets, the mouth waters at the memory. It was all washed down with some excellent cider.The staff had no trouble with the dog (with a cough!) being under the table, and the large meal could be walked off in the sunshine along the nearby canal bank (with its attractive boats tied up along the water's edge). This is a marvellous cosy place and well worth patronising for a meal - even if you have to drive 50 miles as we did! Highly recommended and good value for money.
