A fabulous little pub, situated next to the canal in between Stockton and Birdingbury, serving the most amazing food. Everything is prepared and cooked fresh in our tiny kitchen so there will be a little wait for your food but oh is it worth it. Booking ahead is always recommended - yes even on a Monday night - or be prepared to have to wait to be served. Matt Barnes the Head Chef has never been known to follow a recipe and the outstanding dishes he serves are all created from his head. So be brave, step outside of your comfort zone and try something new. You will not be disappointed. Our menu also caters for the lighter appetites with the Lighter Bites menu, great for the little and older ones.…

Having eaten here before a few times, we decided to have a family get together with relatives who had traveled quite a way.
The first concern I had was the dogs mess in the children,s play area, having come with a young child. This was...More
They allow dogs so we took ours having booked a table. We sat in the garden . As we went through the bar, we were asked whether our dogs had been neutered. The pub has two dogs- bulldog types. The female was about to go...More
