Found this small pub on the banks of the river Wye and while in need of a bit of tender care and refurb their pub lunches were both excellent value and quality. The fish pie and Lansagne were our choice and were really good. Service was very friendly,South African's running the place which probably explains the good food!

Met some friends here for a meal.....think it was in the middle of changing hands so new landlord I suspect. Food was good, good portions, too much salad though. Not many people in this usual buzzing pub but the service was good and it wasn't too expensive, the beer is excellent. The only think I would say is get some... More

We found this lovely little pub by accident but were so pleased to have found it. The new owners are in the process of renovating it at the moment as it needs some tender loving care. However the food was excellent and staff friendly. Well worth a visit and I am sure it will be even better once the renovations... More

We have stopped here on two separate canoe trips as part of a group. Both occasions we received a warm welcome and good traditional English breakfast. It was great being able to canoe to breakfast and enjoy eating outside by the rivers even under cover should it have rained. We will be back next year for sure

Excellent food, wonderful setting by the river and charming hosts whom I believe have only just taken over the pub recently. From the minute we reserved a table for this pub nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Keep up the good work!
