“Disappointed with service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Like many people we stopped here for a drink & bite to eat whilst canoeing down the Wye. We arrived just before 12 so they weren't at their busiest, but firstly I found the bar staff a bit slow & unenthusiastic, which you can expect on a Sunday. Some of us then ordered food, nothing complicated, just sandwiches & salads, but one of my friends was brought a sausage sandwich when he ordered a bacon one. Instead of apologising & saying they would replace it with a bacon sandwich they went & got the receipt to prove he ordered a sausage sandwich. He knew what he had ordered, but they couldn't accept they made a mistake. We had to accept the sausage sandwich!
The food was ok, but pretty overpriced. I think they take advantage of the fact they are in a lovely, ideal location & there is nowhere else to go.
I used to work in a pub & it doesn't hurt to put a smile on your face & be courteous. Don't do the job if you can't!!

“Good ol pub by the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Nice no nonsense food right by the water with the tiny boats going past. Perfect on a nice day. We had the meatballs, and charcuterie board both were great but the burger also looked awesome. Worth a look especially if your in the area.
