Very convenient and attractive location near RSC and canals. Good and varied pub food. Friendly staff. Not 5 star restaurant but very good for what it is. Indoor tables can be a little close to each other but this could be because its popular and busy. The tables outside are situated in attractive surroundings but also close to the road at the front. We ate well and staff looked after us with some charm even though it was at evening shift change time which meant we had 2-3 waiters in total from start to finish. We were glad of its position, service and food.

Ate dinner here and ordered medium rare steak and got a well done, very chewy steak instead and couldn't eat most of it as my jaw started to hurt from chewing.. Considering the price of the steak (£17) it should at least be prime cut rib eye steak! The waitress did offer us a free drink or free dessert as a compliment for the steak but we refused. In the end, they didn't make us pay for the steak which was very reasonable. Hope it doesn't happen again.. At least get a stick or temperature tester for your steaks..

This place is great for a decent and filling meal. They offer quite a range and have special deals on too! Tasty food every time, have been here many times! The desserts are also worth a taste.

Quiet when we went in evening.
Very helpful waiter, made us feel very happy and comfortable.
Speedy service.
Food good, but usual pub chain food.
Waiter's recommendations excellent.
Beer garden would be lovely in summer and in light.

Decent food, we had a table of 14 for sunday lunch, everyone was pleased, prices good, the waiter was brilliant. However, there is a sign saying wait here to be seated - located near the entrance. We all waited there for about 5 minutes while 2 of the least skilled people to work in the service industry looked straight through us and pretended we were not there. Then once they had finished wiping down the side board, said "how can I help"? well erm.... take a guess! We have just walked in through the door and we are all stood by a sign saying wait here to be seated!!!!
The staff were very young - they need to be taught how to deal with humans, the manager of this place needs to get a grip of the most simple but annoying start to an experience here, we almost turned around and walked out, but glad we didnt.
