I visited this week with a work colleague and we decided to pick two meals from the 2 for £10 - I had the classic beef burger. It was excellent value for money, really tasty and a decent sized portion. We also both chose the salted caramel brownie for dessert which was absolutely delicious! The service was really good too...

Stayed one night on business trip, working in area. Couldn't fault it really. Big room with everything you wanted in it, great bar/restaurant area attached and friendly local staff. Selection of food/drinks to suit everyone, big car park and pretty outside garden areas. Also, short walk across road to riverside pathways. Great value too, made pleasant change from chain hotels.... More

Women's toilets - only two - rather squashed! Seating outside at front over looking the main road so not sure about the pleasure in that. Seating outside also at... More

This is a super place and extremely reasonably priced. I booked two rooms, both of which were exceptionally clean, well-appointed and very comfortable. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food in the restaurant is very good and breakfast was excellent.

Was in area for a food fair. Called in here, never been before so had no expectations. Was fairly quiet and was served quickly. Adrian who served us was a star. Great menu and the food was served quickly, lovely and tastey. Highly recommended. Xx

A pleasant setting, nice outdoor area, but 1hour is along time to wait for 1 pie and chips and 1 scampi and chips. When it did finally arrive I couldn't complain about the food - perfectly acceptable pub grub.
