Great if you want to have a drink as a couple or with friends as it's fairly quiet, you can normally get a seat and unlike a lot of others you can actually hear each other speak. Recently updated seating area outside too which is great in the summer.

I recently visited the Wharf with my family for a birthday meal. Unfortunately, they had the fire going downstairs which mad the whole restaurant too hot and it was not combatable and our waitress was very pushy and it would be nice to have a waitress who was happy to serve us. Also, the table that we were seated at... More

First time here, it really is a gem. We opted for the carvery and headed downstairs for a lovely view across the lake. Plenty of wildlife to divert your attention while we enjoyed a pre-lunch drink. I went for turkey, my wife had the beef. Perfect roast potatoes, great Yorkshires, and a very good selection of fresh vegetables very well... More

Went here with a friend for dinner and have eaten here many times before and had lovely food. This time I was disappointed! We both had the burgers, due to my friend being pregnant she requested it was well done. This came out black, the burgers were dry and lacked seasoning. I love this pub and the setting is beautiful.... More

Lovely location. We arrived at 12.30 and had the choice of a round table for 5 by the window in the downstairs carvery section. The waiter was very helpful and attentive. The food was fresh and with good choices - also catering for the vegetarian amongst us who said the spinach roulade with the choice of carvery veg was amazing.... More

Food was nice but too expensive for 3 burgers and chips plus drinks it came to £40. The scenery is really nice on a summers day

Nothing positive to say about the food - carvery was the worst I've ever put on my & children's plates - McDonald's would have been tastier & better quality

A pleasant pub with a warm welcome from the host and staff. Food is standard pub grub, simple and hot. The wild mushroom, mascarpone and spinach risotto was more like risotto rice with a thick layer of cheese but was still nice enough. Treacle sponge was probably not made in house and microwaved but was hot, sweet and served with... More
