We (myself and my wife) often walk the dog along the canal. We never used to bother with this place as it wasn't very good tbh. But....we knew it was being refurbished into a sort of gastro pub. We stopped off for a coffee one sunday morning to have a nose about and see what the new décor was like.... More

Went here early on Saturday evening and ordered the cod and chips, was all served freshly cooked and a nice open fire was a treat. Helpful staff Would happily recommend 👍

This was our first visit to this pub since its major makeover. We had ceased using the old establishment as the food quality and choice went downhill and the ambiance was very down at heel. So, what a revelation the revamped place is. Clean, bright, modern but tasteful would sum it up for me. The two young ladies on bar... More

This pub has recently re-opened after a complete refurbishment and was very nice indeed. We had sandwiches and a drink each - very reasonable price and sat outside. Large outdoor seating area as there is a caravan park attached. It is also handy for a walk along the canal should you so wish!

Beautifully decorated with great service and incredible food that still manages to feel like a local pub. Perfect location for a dog walk and a sneaky pint.

My friend and I popped in on a late September Monday lunchtime as we had my Greyhound with us and we knew that the pub was dog friendly. We also wanted to see the pub after it's recent makeover. We were pleasantly surprised as the new decor has been very tastefully done. We had a starter each, tiger prawns and... More

Not the Rutland Arms as signposted! Rainy Monday late lunchtime, pretty quiet. Food came quickly and was fine. Decent fish and chips and burger, nicely presented. Staff polite, prompt and attentive. Decent beer and wine, well served. Attractive decor, great location. A very enjoyable lunch.
