“Awful pub steer clear”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Went for a drink in this place and looking back i don't know why we didn't walk straight out the place was dark and smelt fusty the toilets looked like they hadn't been cleaned for weeks and their was no wine available! What sort of a pub doesn't sell wine by the glass. proper rubbish!

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Interior is poorly lit, dark furnishings, drab wall covering, poor food. It could be such a nice place I'm sure although there isn't much room to sit outside next to the river which has a pretty poor view anyway.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Very bad place to be, would not even eat here as the condition of the place puts you off and would not want to sit in one place for 2 long! Staff very ill trained and rude. Complain about your beer and the security will turf you out had to resort to trading standards.

“Pub for Chavs NOT a restaurant!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

This place has had so many different names because it fails every 3 years. It is the home to all the Chavs and low lifes of Boston. It is not a place to eat. It is place to buy drugs or get beat up! Don't do it to yourself. Go eat out of a bin rather than here! Trust me we live here and avoid it like the plague! You want a nice pub lunch go to the White Hart which is a 2 min walk away.

“Waterfront outlook”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

nice to be by the river, although opposite the White Hart Hotel the buildings need a paint update and some flowers along the river would be pleasant as it was a little neglected
