Cant fault it the food is good, prices reasonable, and staff very friendly. Location by the river and alfresco dining, or in the cozy interior... Nice menu choice for all appetites...

......you won't be disappointed. We were there for Sunday lunch - and there was plenty of it! I had the pork, which was overdone but not irredeemably so - the crackling was perfect, but the roast spuds had been roasting for a very long time!...More

Rediscovered the TOLAW this summer after many years. Popped down 5 or 6 times this August and enjoyed relaxing in the sun with a ice cold cider as much as I ever did in the 80's!

We dropped by for lunch on Sunday but didn't fancy a roast... they came up trumps with a superb ham egg and chips and a scampi and chips with a tasty dressed side salad garnish. Not bad value either and quick service. Will definitely return

I imagine the only way you can find out that information, if it is available would be to ring the pub directly, I googled it for you 01179673793
