If you like mushroom soup then order this. We were expecting whole or sliced mushrooms not tiny little pieces that you had to hunt to find in the sauce. Won't order again, very disappointed

Not adhering to track n trace guidelines. Food average. Beer good. Garden good. Social distancing good, only because the clientele were good - staff can’t be bothered with it any more obviously. Would go back - post-covid only!

Hi although we don't allow dogs into the restaurant we do have a lovely large garden with gazebos and tables and chairs in which you are more than welcome to use and admire the scenery.

Hi, the tow path is on the other side of the canal from the pub, but the road bridge is not far away, about 100m. I don't know if there are seats along the towpath, sorry.
