Lovely outside eating areas with plenty of tables means you can usually get a spot even on a hot sunny day. Menu is fairly short, which is good, and it's good value too. The South Indian fish curry was delicious and a bag of biltong...More

A traditional pub nestling alongside the tow path of the grand union canal. You can enjoy fantastic views of the water from the garden or inside the pub , plus there's a large carpark. Use the free WiFi, read the papers, enjoy a capuccino or a three course meal. Something for everyone
