Arrived by narrowboat on very warm Tuesday afternoon. We were all, including the dog, made very welcome and felt like we were treated as friends even though we were strangers. Landlord was very, very helpful, picking up some shopping for us when he went out. Barman delivered a bowl of iced water into garden for doggie. Beer was well kept and lager very refreshing! Returned in evening for a meal, leaving dog on boat as he was tired, which meant we could eat in restaurant, the only place dogs can't go. Had a bit of a wait for food but, as we were on holiday and not in a hurry, that just gave us time to have another drink. When food arrived it was perfect. I had the salmon and husband had steak. Everything was properly cooked from fresh, not microwaved from frozen. We also thought prices were very good. Landlady and staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. Landlord even helped to locate 'lost' husband (wandered off to chat). We thought the laundry and bathroom facilities for boaters were a great idea, although we didn't use them. We were tempted by the breakfast but I'm not a morning person so we missed it. We'd happily recommend this pub to everyone. We just wish we lived nearer, we're a two hour car journey away. Maybe next year!! Good luck Kelly (ladies first!) & Simon.
