We called in for lunch on the off chance. Luckily they had room to accommodate us. The lamb trio consisted of four tender lamb chops - a trio of four is quite novel. The potatoes and veg were wonderful. I just about had room for the apple pie and toffee sauce for pudding. The staff were pleasant. There was a... More

My partner and I visited today for some lunch and sat outside. I wasn't too hungry so asked for a prawn salad and some chips. "We don't do chips on their own" we were told. I ordered scampi and chips and my partner ordered a Sunday dinner. After waiting an hour and fifteen minutes the meals came. The Sunday roast... More

Fantastic! You can take your dog's in now (not in the restaurant bit though)! Living very locally and being a dog lover it's always been a little disappointing that we were banished to the outside. No longer though.

We popped in for just a drink initially and after a few drinks my wife fancied a portion on chips and a couple of rounds of bread and butter. When I attempted to order this with the pleasant girl at the bar, I was told by the obnoxious Landlord that we couldn't have chips on there own and I should... More

This is a popular canal-side pub / restaurant with character & charm and a beer garden sloping down to the canal - great location to watch boaters go through the adjacent lock. It was well-patronised outside as we passed by on a lovely sunny day with people eating lunch. We booked a table for the evening and were impressed with... More
