“Disappointing first visit.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We sought out the Narrowboat because of all the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, but we must have caught it on a very bad day. We ordered two gammon steaks from the specials board, only to be told that they had sold out - at 7.30 on a Friday night !!! So we ordered a beef curry with rice at £7.95 and a fish and chips with mushy peas at £8.95. We had to send the beef curry back (something I've never done before) because the beef was undercooked, tough and inedible. We asked for a soup and roll instead only to be told there was no soup available. The fish and chips were OK although they were served with garden peas, not mushy peas, but at £8.95. not great value.
The landlady was lovely and very apologetic, and gave us the price of the curry back with no hesitation, but if this restaurant is rated number 1 in Middlewich I fear for the visiting public.

“Great landlord, great service”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Had a lovely evening meal at this pub, the landlord was very friendly, helpful and accomodating. He really made an effort to make us feel like truly valued customers. The food was very good for pub food and very well presented. Would definitely come here again.
