After a long outing on the river what better way to re-charge the batteries with a lovely 32 onz steak ! Really not to sure how people could knock this food because everything that come out of the kitchen looked spot on ...Jade and Britney (bar staff) done a good job in keeping us topped up and making us feel...

Coldest reception I've ever experienced! Popped in with the kids for a quick drink......only to be met by and extremely cold and grumpy bar tender. Her welcome......and I quote "we have no tables" despite us not even asking for one! Then when we explained we only wanted a drink she told us we would have to go next door to... More

Been to this pub twice in day time and evening with large groups of 10+ people. The staff are great and food is delicious. They have the best pub chips I've had (much like chip shop chips). We've tried the curries, pies, lamb liver as well as the veggie options they do. No complaints and they all tasted great. Would... More

I am sorry to have to write this. We had been reliably told that the fish and chips were exceptional at The Boat. We knew the view was fab, and the landlord/lady/owners are very lucky as it does help BUT my fish had been cooked and reheated, the chips were unique in their consistency but the piece de resistance for...

Again mixed feelings. My canoeing colleagues relayed when they asked an older woman behind the bar if they sit outside, could order food, she answered "I don't know, can you?". Huh? Okay.... It was no surprise then when I found out it was the same lady who runs the nearby campsite, The Pound. She is not a nice person to... More

On visiting the boat we had heard various reports some excellent some awful so we thought we we give it a visit whilst visiting family. Well I can honestly say it was one of the worst experiences we have had. The deep fried brie advertised as vegatarian tasted of fish I am thinking it was cooked in fish fryer so... More

Well we had two Brie starters and was covered in the sweetest sauce(sauce should have been served separately so you could use as desired) and a slice of ordinary buttered sliced brown bread. Again no description and you got what you were given. How boring and sickly. Main course was no better. I had steak with peas and sweet corn... More

We had our daughter and son in law's wedding reception and grandsons baptism celebration meal at this lovely old inn. The setting is beautiful, the food incredible and the staff amazing. Such a special place to hold many happy memories.

All our food has been amazing, fajitas to build your own, kids chicken nuggets (homemade) and awesome pies, but particularly the rib eye steak. Very friendly staff and great views of the river and fields. Highly recommended
