Choose to eat here with a group of friends. Good portion sizes and the food was good. It's just nice pub food in my opinion, there's nothing special about it, but it's good at what it does.

We went for Christmas lunch and it was a huge disappointment. No effort made on the tables. Dowdy and plain. The starter and pudding were ok but I couldn't eat my turkey. It tasted like it was out of a packet and the stuffing was inedible too. Vile. The veggies were first class so a good job they gave you... More

After good experience in Summer, arranged to meet daughter here for lunch and am pleased to say that it has got even better. Refurbished lower lounge is very comfortable, food remains very good quality at great price and even vegan daughter and her veggie boyfriend were catered for - (how did I end up with such picky eaters!). I had... More

Had with worst ever Christmas meal on Sunday. The beef and turkey tasted like old boots, veg was mushy, stuffing like bullets. Staff were stand-offish and rude. Hey Ho you get what you pay for. I want a refund. Never going to eat here again. Not even for a pint to watch the world go by, until someone revives this... More

Love this pub and been many a time during summer, perfect for sitting outside in the sunshine as located in a pretty spot by the canal. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and really couldn't fault the place until we chose to eat dinner there last week. I made the mistake of choosing gammon which was very, very thick and chewy. It...

Visited again after the Remembrance Parade, based upon the Manager's Response to my last visit in June. Very excited to see the increased vegan section on your new menu!!! To find that the menu still only specifies 'v' vegetarian and upon asking the waiting staff which dishes were vegan I was told that dishes can be 'veganised' but there's no... More

This is great food , or great just to go for a drink. In the summer you can sit out by the lock and watch the boats come up and down. In the winter there is an open fire to sit by. Maybe not as cost as it once was. Quickly served good food though.
