Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very disappointing, after waiting 30 mins we asked to order our food and were told snappily they had a ‘system’ so they couldn’t take our order yet. It was a busy bank holiday so we understood they were busy but when my daughter asked if she could order food at the bar (after all we don’t know their ‘system’ at all), the owner shouted in her face leaving her shaking. The whole situation could have been handled much better with some dialogue. Being ghosted by waiting staff and shouted at aggressively is just so unprofessional. If you can’t manage a busy session maybe you are in the wrong business.

Popped in for a drink after a long circular walk around Roundway down. Decided to eat as both hungry after the walk and we were not disappointed. The meal steak pie for Nigel and lamb steak with pulled lamb gratin for me was the most delicious meal we have had in a long time. So tender and no skimping on the size of the serving. Lovely pub, friendly staff and great food. Dog friendly too. What more could you ask for.

Early March my wife and I called in on the off chance. We were given a very warm welcome and took a seat looking out at the canal. We first commented that the menu consisted of a good choice of proper pub food. When it came, we were both surprised. This was indeed proper pub food, but cooked to an excellent standard. I can honestly say, this is the best value meal that I can remember... We're going back very soon...

What a wonderful setting for a canal side drink after a lovely walk on the Caen Hill locks. But such a shame that the food & drink was decidedly average and overpriced. We had a mixed ploughmans which consisted of limp supermarket pre bagged crunchy salad, one cherry tomato, 3 tiny silverskin pickled onions and barely 1oz tasteless cheese and one small slice of ham and a part baked supermarket white bagette. All for an extortionate price of £7.95!!!! A shameful exploitation of tourists and holiday makers!

So, we’re x 6 fellas off to pick up a Canal boat down the road, but a couple of hours early. Popped in here for a bite to eat and a pint prior to picking up our boat. Brilliant attitude from the 2 young ladies from entering to leaving. Food was fantastic, pies were absolutely amazing. Others had the fish & chips, or Burger choice on the menu. All came out together, piping hot. Was so good, we couldn’t help but order a dessert after too. Thoroughly recommended.

Great location for lunch on a sunny day along side the canal. The beer was very good but with the excellent weather it was obvious that the staff were unable to cope with the number of customers ordering food. There was a very long delay between ordering and being served food. On arrival the food was only average.

Any establishment proudly not offering a range of coffees despite customers repeatedly asking for them (during my brief visit) is asking for trouble. My tip to them would be for them to not recommend any of the other outlets nearby that do offer a contemporary range of drinks (as the bar staff were doing as I watched).

Especially when the coffee they do offer is dire - weak/tasteless and not even very warm.

I expect their food is better but I wasn’t going to hang around to find out.

First impressions were good - welcoming bar area with friendly staff and landlord. The Wadworth's beer was well kept and we ordered lunch by the canal-side. The baguettes were mediocre with a very limp salad. However; the views of the canal and barges was excellent. Unfortunately the worst was come. I needed to use the Gents' toilet before leaving, and on entering I nearly gagged with the stench of stale urine. This clearly an example of poor or non existent hygiene procedures over a considerable period of time. Get your act together Landlord or you ain't going to have a business for much longer.
