Arrived on spec for some food Sunday lunchtime. The pub really busy but waitress was very polite and gave us a menu and checked with the kitchen that they could produce glutton free dishes as my partner was coeliac. With no fuss the publican took...our order and within 5mins it came out piping hot. The food was tasty. Well done the Navigation Inn. We’ll be back.More

Left it late to book dinner called a few country restaurants with no availability- apart from here - used to be a busy pub with good food - arrived the place was deserted .. no atmosphere table was sticky - service was questionable- forgetting part...of drinks order - had to go to bar to ask Ordered food menu looked good Starters were nice hopeful for mains - T bone steak - was good but not great - buttermilk chicken burger very poor - picked around it and gave most to the dog - cheap frozen french fries - lamb chops extremely fatty - under cooked veg and overcooked dried out potato - again the dog ate most of the meal - he’s not fussy .. Service was hit and miss considering no customers forgot cutlery had to ask for condiments I have been up all night with nausea Hugely disappointed that what used to be such a lovely pub has lost its mojo will not be returning Not cheap either .. wasted our moneyMore

Had an excellent experience in April ‘21 and had hoped for the same this time for our family gathering of eight on 30th Dec. Unfortunately that wasn’t to be. We booked to sit outside as one of our group is Covid vulnerable. The large outside...space specially erected for COVID dining was perfect last time and as the temperature was very mild it should have been perfect for lunch. Unfortunately, the area was filthy; every table dirty from the previous day with litter on the floor. No sanitisers available. No soap in the gents or ladies toilet. Had to ask for a table to be cleaned. The food when it arrived was ok but expensive, but the waiting staff did not want to bring cutlery until all the main courses had been served. Bringing out plates two-by-two from the kitchen took over 10 minutes so the first people served had food going cold. Took an age to clear plates and got fed up waiting for dessert menus despite asking twice so gave up on desserts and paid the bill. The restaurant was not busy at lunch; there were at least 3 servers plus the owner serving so there shouldn’t be any excuses for not preparing the restaurant for service. Very disappointed.More

My husband and 3 month old went to the Navigation a few Saturday's ago and again we were really impressed with the food. I had a lamb which was delicious and so well presented. A lot of thought and care went into the dish. My...husband had the chicken burger which is pure chicken breast, really wholesome and also delicious. We were made to feel very welcome with our new baby and staff were happy to help in what ever way. I feel that this little pub is overlooked due to the alternative pub in Lapworth but this place is such a lovely little place to visit with equally delicious food and amazing grounds for the warmer months.More

Nice warm pub, was sat next to a fire so it was nice and rustic. Plenty of car parking, would say the pints and food is slightly more expensive but it was all nice food so I suppose you could say it was worth it....Very good choice of draught beers, lunch menu also great.More

the last time we here we had a very good experience the food was good and at a very resonable price. Was shocked this time however at how much the prices have doubled.

Sunday lunch at the navigation is always a treat but today was excellent. The service by Isobel and georgia was attentive, polite and courteous. 10/10. The roast beef was perfectly cooked and served with perfect seasonal vegetables. Can’t wait to go back. Thanks loads to...all the crew at the “navigation “More
