Sat outside today at Botolphs Bridge, great friendly service and good food as always. A lovely afternoon spent in the garden. Bacon and Brie sandwich was yummy and very filling, definitely worth a try.

Wonderful little pub, not terribly athsetic except when the fire is on. However, the food is good, the staff attentive and plentiful. Service is quick, as it should be with that complement of staff.
