Such a shame, this is such a perfect pub/restaurant. Great location, parking, love the fact we can take the dogs, open fire and garden and also great choice of ales but unfortunately the food is really poor.

Having had such a terrible experience with the G&D I thought it only fair to offer them a chance to redeem themselves before slating them on trip advisor. Heck we used to love the pub and and felt it only fair. But now having waited around a week for a call back from the landlady who’d assured me she wanted... More

Great of English pub with masses of atmosphere and a good menu. Strong British good about is innovative and good. Service remains slow at times but the location by the river and good food more than make up for it

Popped in for lunch, staff were excellent, nothing too much trouble. We sat in the garden which is a lovely sun trap by the river, my 2 yr old nephew loved playing on the old tractor they have in the garden, food was excellent, will certainly go back, great atmosphere.

7 of us went for lunch today and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was excellent, couldn't fault it. And the Blackcurrant and lliquorice ice cream was out of this world! Service was very good and we all felt very good value. We are already planning on going back again!

Visited Sunday 4th September with friends. We had pre booked s table but arrived an hour early. They were great in accommodating us arriving too early and nothing was too much bother for them. Good service but not too intrusive. The food was lovely - we had shoulder of lamb / burger and fishcakes. Very relaxing meal and would definitely... More
