I have to say I couldn't ask for a better local. Extremely well run pub, great beers, great view, and a brilliant range of food from pub lunches, brunch is amazing, Sunday dinners and now a restaurant which offers full service of the highest level. Would really recommend this pub summer or winter. Sits over looking the marina in summer...

I stayed here for just one night, the room was upgraded to a feature room and i must say the room looks really cool. I had a balcony next to the river and the view was just awesome. The bed was comfy. The bathroom could do with some more correct lighting around the mirror. In the morning the room was...

We had a 2 night stay here, it was very clean, staff were very helpful, room was superb with great quality fixtures and fittings, but the food in the restaurant was the 'piece de resistance'.

Booked two rooms for one night. When we arrived, I thought "what a mistake", as it looks like an industrial building. Stepping inside though was great.

What we didn't expect was the delay in delivering one of the choices. We were...

Being our local we had never actually tried the resturant area however we was pleasantly surprised. Our server Dimitri was fantastic and the food was enjoyable if not heavily seasoned in oil and not enough kale in the Monkfish

I popped in for a quick drink and lunch after seeing that there was a new menu online. I thought I would try the Commissioner's quarter pounder which is loaded with pulled salt beef, melting Emmental & Mozzarella cheeses and a BBQ mustard relish. A bit pricey at £13.95 but it was very tasty and I'm sure I will try...

Ordered the buttermilk fried chicken which looked like someone's left over dinner. Very stale and dry. Not worth the hard earned £10. On a brighter note, the tap water and the weather was lovely on and the waitress.
