“country pub with great waterside garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

this typically english pub exudes atmosphere with riverside garden and log fires, The food is ok, but relatively pricey, although these seem to have dropped a little recently. Have stopped selling standard items like Corona beer and Big Tom, but the beer festivals are fun and worth a visit as are the live music nights.

“No no-smoking ban”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Great location but food very average and not very good value for money. Other than water the only other sugar free drink is cola on tap. The jacket potato came with the smallest side salad i've ever seen, litterally a couple of pieces of diced onion and a sprig of lettuce. As the evening was a little chilly we sat inside, unfortunately with smokers sat at tables immediately outside the open entrance their smoke drifted in so it was just like going to the pub before the smoking ban.
