Often visit her with my family, can’t go wrong with the lovely homemade pub grub! The steak pie is to die for and the meals are all so reasonably priced! Defiantly worth a visit if you are visiting the area.

Quality home cooked style British food. Our pies were excellent and worth the slow barge down from Wrenbury Mill. Great portions of lovely grub. Nice canalside location and good service. Dog friendly. Nice!
