This is a true family favourite and we like the food and the friendliness of the team. We would especially recommend the mixed grill if you have not eaten all day!

Winter warmer menu throughout Oct every Thurs, there is a selection of 5 dishes to choose from for just £5! Portions are amazingly generous and I would describe it as well cooked home/pub grub. I would highly recommend it to anyone. A must try!

Fab view and really lovely food. Sat outside overlooking the Severn. Very busy but we didn't feel rushed or that there were people everywhere. Plates of food were massive. Really well cooked. Smiley staff even though busy..

The location of this pub is wonderful, and sitting in the beer garden is a must if the weather is nice. The interior is traditional however rather dominated by a large tv screen with sport whilst we were there.

Great lunch today, one of the best steaks I have ever had and cooked to perfection. The roasts were also excellent with so much meat. Keep up the good work.
