Warm welcome from the owner/ Landlady. Our 11 yr old son traveled with us, nothing to much trouble. came down for a family party.

Pub food available looked good.... More

My friend and I came here for food a few months back. We had the roast dinner and I was lovely. Followed by dessert which too was very nice. The staff were great and the atmosphere good. Not much more you can want from a place.

Nice bar food for a reasonable price. Steak over done but same in most pubs. Not great wine but ok and very reasonable. Service was good and we sat on a lovely little table overlooking the river. Would go back again. Nice vibe to the pub and clientele very friendly.
