“Great food, awesome location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The food is on the upper end of the chain-pub style meals. Been here a few times now, really great chicken burger and chips. Very friendly staff who couldn't do enough to help us.
Sitting out the back by the river on a summer night is a real treat, highly recommended!

“Good food with low prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Mum and I were staying at the Ashley Hotel up the road; we took a stroll. Menu covers lots if tastes from the pub grub to the more "posh" dishes. I hade smoked fish and veg whilst mum had smoked chicken and veg. Both dishes very tasty :)

Waiting staff were polite and helpful; overhearing how the manager approached customers was not so great though- didn't seem to care much about customer satisfaction.

Stick with the younger staff and look forward to large portions of good food for under £9!

“UK-Mexican food in UK bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

This bar is great and very busy with locals. We had dinner on the outside terrace at the back of the bar. Burgers were great, I loved the mexican style fries (with cheese and beans on it).
