Three of us ate here for one night whilst on a canal holiday. The pub is an old country Inn with an old world ambience. We found the food to be very good and accompanied by some very nice local ale. Recommended.

Service is excellent, the food (as on previous visits) was very good, the beer is well kept, and the atmosphere very pleasant. What more could you want from a pub lunch?
