“Nice location by the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Good quality pub food with nice surroundings by the river. Outdoor area can get very busy in summer but always enjoy having a drink and food here in the sun

“Outside by the river was pleasant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Service was slow - typical English pub were you have to line up and wait at the bar to order drinks and food. Food is eventually delivered to your table - we had to chase ours down - it was over cooked.

“Good pub with terraced garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled across this on Saturday afternoon. Nice spot next to the river with good terraced garden. It was clean and tidy, served quickly and staff were efficient clearing glasses and plates from previous customers.
Good pub, and I'd go back.

“Not a bad pub, but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

The beers and ales are good, but the food is just average (considering English standards :-), staff is OK.

“Keep it simple and enjoy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We had already had lunch (Cote Brasserie) so just wanted something simple to let us relax after a busy day. A tidy clean pub not far from the river that specialises in Grills (and pub food-sausage and mash). It looks like there is enough turnover in business to keep the standard of the steak high enough; we asked for rare rump and that's what we got. A well presented salad to accompany mine. Once again a table full of clean plates at a very reasonable price; also some real ale options- kept well. It looks like they have some turns on at the weekend; so I think it would work well as a pub as well. A good end to a good day!
