We called on a Sunday afternoon to be greeted by a strange barman, who was less that welcoming. However the young barmaid was delightful and caring which made up for her older colleague. The food was basic but good. Maybe I would eat here again....maybe not.
The establishment is a little disappointing in that on arrival it looks a delightful old canal side hostelry. However, inside, the dining area is similar to a village hall, large and lacking in ambience and atmosphere, a little like a sterile motorway halt.

If you want to eat the best food available, in a fabulously convivial setting, then this is it. The Landlord is a character, the beer is brilliant and the food........... exceptional. They use only the best they can get their hands on. The T bone seaks are welsh black, the veg is locally sources, the chips are proper chunky home cooked, and everything is absolutely fresh.

This has to be one of the very best canal side pubs in the country. Simple.

Eve the 121 entry think so.

Moored up outside on a wet and windy night. Bar is on the small side, but the restaurant is huge with tables nicely spaced out.
Food was excellennt - two of us ate from the main menu (the rack of lamb recieving sighs of ecstasy!) and two of us from the 2 courses for £10.
All beautifully served, plenty of veg served in dishes, and a good selection of ales on tap.
Would return

We dropped in for lunch on our way to Portmeirion. It looked shut, as it was dark and cold, but the landlord was soon there to switch on the lights! They had a full and extensive menu. The food was homemade and good, but it was so cold, I had to fetch my coat from the car. The landlord was very friendly, if a little eccentric and the pub was very 'lived in' ... which we liked, despite the cold, if there was a log fire it would have been perfect.

A group of eight of us visited here on a narrowboat. The pub came so well recommended by online canal forums and the local boatyard, we decided to stop here for lunch - something we've never done before, preferring to press on during the day and only stop to eat in evenings.

We arrived towards the end of lunchtime and feared the kitchen may have stopped serving, but nevertheless were shown to a big table where we could all sit round in comfort - which made a big difference to us as a group.

The beer was good, the menu was vast and very varied, with a wide variety of prices, but everything we ordered was excellent.

And just to make it easy for boaters - there's a concrete path up to the canal edge with mooring rings set in for easy use. I've no idea what it's like in the evening - but if you're seeking an interesting place to stop for a special meal I'd say it's well worth a visit.
