Went in for impromptu evening meal. Sat at table for 30 seconds before deciding to leave. The music was unbearable and the smell of old chip fat overwhelming. Previous visits had revealed below par food and poorly kept beer. Should have learnt our lesson!

A lovely traditional pub to go for food after a canal walk. Fresh homemade food, delicious pies, full of meat and proper chunky chips. Warm welcoming atmosphere. Would definitely recommend if in the area.

We stayed here for one night and on entering the bar area, it had a cosy feel with the fire burning away and quite friendly locals. The bar lady showed us to our room which was clean but freezing cold. We returned to the bar...More

Stopped off for a drink whilst walking along the canal. Always a good sign when plenty of locals in. Good selection of beers and although did not eat the menu looked good and tables were clean.

The cooking here is much better than standard pub fare. As well as the standard menu there are always specials available. Prices are very reasonable in relation to quality and portion size. Food was excellent overall. The homemade sticky toffee pudding wasn't sticky - more...More

Took my parents here for dinner. Lovely food however I had teriyaki salmon dish which tasted great but was extremely small! I've had larger starters!

Not sure about times I know they are open every lunch as we always go at lunch time, as it's also a b&b think the pub is open all day. Menu is traditional pub grub with specials each day
