On the quayside and almost next to the bridge, always very busy in summer, overfilled with tourists. Off season it's a proper pub with some good real ales and 25p discount for Camra members.

Fantastically polite and quick service. Six meals were delivered within 15 minutes all done to perfection. Staff were very friendly and the place was very clean. Wonderful, would definitely go again!
