Although the surrounding area was beautiful and someone had obviously spent a long time creating the boat jigsaws on the wall, the service was ridiculously slow and the standard of cleanliness was not good. Maybe the service was so slow as staff were completing New jigsaws to put on the walls? Main courses took an hour to come. The wait was far too long for the standard of food. We waited half an hour for four kids bowls of ice cream and to be honest I wish I hadn't bothered because the ice cream was grim. The kids "fruit shoots" from the bar were from aldi, as were the bottles of wine and ketchup.
The toilets were unpleasant. In the women's there was a choice of two cubicles: one had no lock and mud on the floor, the other didn't flush. I didn't want to touch the sink due to the healthy growth of mould.
The kids play area had last been used by a family of hippos. At the end of every slide there was a pool of mud. The play equipment was rusty and needed a lick of paint.
Overall I'd say save your money. But, if you're a family of very patient hippopotamuses then this pub is definitely for you!
