I go here quite a bit as its a good 5 mile walk along the canal from where I live and I can take the dog in there. I used to go here as a child and love the atmoshpere and the fact you can sit and watch the world go by. There is always a good choice of ales and plenty of dogs roaming around. We went here to eat on a Saturday night and took my parents and were very pleasantly surpised. We had the scampi, the fish, the lasagne and the mixed grill (which was huge). There was a bit of a mix up over the deserts as they'd sold out of a number but that didn't matter we all had a good time, there was even some live music. When you look at the price you pay and the fact it is homemade food it isn't bad at all. If you want posh food at silly prices then go somewhere else - if you want to sit with your dog and have a chilled out meal surrounded by friendly people then this is the place to go.
