We are a wonderful meal here on a Monday night on the run upto Christmas. We meet up with our son who was at Raf Halton. The staff were amazing and so friendly. We had whitebait, crab linguine, duck and Stilton salad and good only steak and chips, all cooked perfectly and delicious. This is a must visit will definitely... More

We've eaten here lots of times and the food is always fabulous but when we brought some friends from London here for Sunday lunch in early December it was even better than usual. The service was quite simply brilliant, just the right level of attentiveness without being over the top and it's a nice touch that the landlord comes to... More

Tucked away by the Grand Union canal, pleasant pub with good choice of beers including ale from the Tring Brewery. On a summers day great place to sit in the garden next to the canal. Today a bit cold so nice to sit in the bar which is nicely decorated with 'rustic' furniture. Good food menu with plenty of variation.... More

It's a 'free' pub so first and foremost you get a broad choice of beers rather than the fairly limited choice in the local tied pubs.
