Still on the canal and still with two dogs we ate dinner outside right on the canal. Very scenic. Because of the dogs we didn't go inside but it seemed to be divided between a bar/pub and a restaurant. Good Italian food isn't always that easy to find and this was seriously good. The menu offered a decent selection of... More

Looking for somewhere new to eat, decided to give this place a try based on reviews. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals , both main courses and desserts. Owner met all guests and was attentive without being overbearing and service was both prompt and friendly. Lovely setting near canal too. We will definitely visit again and would heartily recommend.

Went here for a pub meal, its an Italian menu, food was superb, a pleasant surprise. The outside of the pub décor does not do it any favours or match the expectations inside

Well what a place. Fantastic welcome. Great place. Food is freshly cooked no chain and what a serving. Garlic mushrooms to start rib eye vegs and sautéed potatoes and a generous portion. Then to sit outside watching the barges go by very relaxing. Well worth visiting the plum pudding.

We'd driven past the Plum Pudding restaurant on the way to a canal boat holiday and remarked how welcoming it looked. Delighted to cruise past the place while looking for somewhere to eat. Children initially disappointed to hear 'no pizzas' just authentic Italian food, but had no problem choosing three courses with the help of Manager Giuseppe. No complaints from... More
