The twin beds were very comfortable. Room even had an electric fan which was excellent as it was a very warm night. Breakfast in the morning was good, well... More

Disappointing service as some meals didn't arrive as requested. Waited over an hour for food to be served,which would be understandable if the venue had been busy (it wasn't) Food was tasty,everyone enjoyed their meal.

Called in today for a spur of the moment lunch. I must say that we were pleasantly surprised. A lovely afternoon in a lovely location by the river. Both my scampi and my better halves!!!! steak were very enjoyable. The staff were polite and we received excellent service especially from the girl who brought out our food. I believe her... More

Lovely pub with garden and patio backing onto river. Food was good, plenty of choice. Although there were only 2 choices of toppings for jacket potatoes. Unfortunate because both my friend and myself were wanting but were not tempted because of limited fillings. We ended up ordering a larger main meal, double the price but very tasty and served in...

Lovely location - right by the river. Our room was well equipped, very clean and all the staff were very friendly. We didn't eat in the restaurant because we were visiting friends in Derby, but the breakfast we had was very good. Must mention Ann who even gave us a take away bag to take a croissant with us for...

A large group of us went for a birthday celebration so we decided it would be easier if we had our own table numbers & ordered/paid per family. Easy enough, the waitress came, made a note of our number & took our orders. Until we realised that nothing came out in order or even in table numbers. We ordered our... More

Had a lovely, relaxing lunch, service was excellent, welcome was excellent and the food was very good. You are left to enjoy your meal at your own pace. Cheryl and her team are most welcoming, they listen to constructive criticism and do something about it.
