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.

Overnight stop with a pub meal. Big level car park opposite side of road to pub. Parked next to the river. Very tranquil and dog walking option beside car park. Pub meal very good staff welcoming and good atmosphere. Dogs welcome will be back.

Stopped here for lunch and were welcomed warmly and shown to a table by the wood burner. We spoke to four different members of staff who were all very friendly and helpful. We shared starters of tempura prawns and brie wedges, which were delicious followed by a lovely plate of fish and chips. Food and drink prices were good. We would definitely return.

We visited this pub on 2 consecutive evenings for food with our dog. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival. The food and service was great, and our dog got a lot of attention! Lovely pub, friendly vibe, great menu with beautifully presented and tasty food. Highly recommended!

Five of us went for the first time. Everyone was happy with their meal and I thought it was all done to a very good standard and well presented. If I found myself in the area I wouldn't hesitate to go there again.

Same meal on both occasions - Well cooked - such good value - lovely server, feel sure her name was Abbi, gave great overview on the local area, while remaining unbiased - always feel slightly unconfident when visiting a chain pub, but please don't - will return when next in the area

On entry, greeted in the bar area by locals vaping, a portent of what was to come. Kindly directed to the restaurant for our reservation, only for a confused look on the barmaids face as she told us another couple were sat in our allocated table. Offered table by the bar and toilets, not ideal but not an issue. Ordered a starter to share, followed by fish and chips for us both. Not a long wait before the fish and chips were delivered to the table. We said we ordered a starter to share, only to be given an eye roll and the comment 'we thought this was a side' by the waitress before she huffed, disappeared and came back with our starter to eat at the same time as our main.... At this point we still had no cutlery, so asked for this only to then be given the same attitude which made us feel we were putting them out. Waiter came along with said cutlery, no condiments were offered so I asked for some vinegar and red sauce, but was told bluntly 'No' to the red sauce I asked why and was told they didn't have any. I then spent the next half an hour whilst eating our starter and mains (at the same time) counting how many bottles of red sauce I could see on other tables - Grand total of 8 by the time we had finished! Overall,food was ok and big portions served . Service was terrible, felt like we were putting them out by asking for basics like cutlery to eat our dinner. Couldn't wait to leave as we didn't feel welcome in the slightest, not a great attitude to have in the 'hospitality' industry. Wouldn't return or recommend.

We had a mother and daughter day out and stopped here for lunch. Our meals were delicious and plenty of it. You will not be disappointed. Reasonably priced and had a nice atmosphere, would definitely visit again.

We stayed here for 2 nights , it is a nice friendly pub with a lovely garden including a riverside seating area . We dined here on both evenings and the food was good . Our room was compact but very clean . Breakfast was not included but available at a reasonable cost , the good thing was that the menu included a good choice ranging from a full breakfast down to Scrambled Eggs on toast etc all priced accordingly . It is in a nice location but public transport is very limited (a few buses a day) so a car is fairly essential. We said we would happily stay here again .

We came in as a party of 9, and were so impressed with this pub. The venue itself is welcoming and spotlessly clean, with a beautiful outdoor seating area. Our food was delicious, and the menu has something for everyone. The staff were incredibly helpful, and as someone who works in the industry, I thought they did a great job. Highly recommend this hidden gem!!
