A very friendly pub, serving food. We only stopped for evening drinks, but could see that the pub food looked very good. A good selection of real ale and wines, at reasonable prices.

Had been looking forward to this but so disappointed. Dead quiet no music depressing. Food very poor fish and chips one of the worst we've ever had. Batter wasn't crunchy all soft, anaemic chips and a very long hair within the batter so hygiene not...great.More

Came in for a meal in the evening and was asked for a drinks order before we’d even sat down. We then ordered our food ( a starter and a main). We then waited an hour ( this is no exaggeration) for our starter. (...With all due respect, we had a shared starter so this should not have taken over an hour). The manager did notice that people who came in after us had their food before us so did give us a free round of drinks. This was very appreciated. Our mains arrived in good time but the pub had almost emptied. No member of staff came to check our food was ok or to follow up. We even waited for them so we could ask for the bill but gave up and went to the bar because we’d waited long enough. The food was ok but some food we didn’t order turned up and we had to return some food as it was burnt. ( the server who dealt with this was very professional and apologetic). The pub is a nice place to dine but just the service on the night wasn’t what we expected and we left disappointed. Probably wouldn’t return.More

Good and friendly service, with a smile and some banter. Guys have great sense of humour and good music taste.

We enjoyed our lunch at the Riverside. We sat outside under the grape vine. It was a comfortable space. It was quite noisy further over by the river with children and dogs milling about. Club sandwich and ploughman's came fairly quickly despite being busy, and...were delicious. Good pint of local beer too.More

Had a nice cream tea here, sat outside and had to use the app to order, which was very easy to do. i think you can go inside somewhere to pay but i preferred staying outside. Scones were nice and warm and lots of jam...and clotted cream (not prepacked either but fresh in a small bowl).More

We sat in the garden. I didn’t ask about sitting inside, the wait was very acceptable. Didn’t time it. Not much help sorry.

Parking available at Inn and in the village. Restaurant and garden seating available for meals and snacks. I guess standard licensing hours apply.

Apologies for how late the reply to the question is. Dogs ARE more than welcome in both our bars and gardens. The restaurant is the only area of our pub that dogs are not allowed into. We are child friendly throughout the... More
