Good choice of lunch menu. But a little expensive for a normal lunch out. The bar downstairs can become a creche during the day. So if your looking for a nice dinner or lunch for 2 go upstairs.

If you are a pub who advertises your food as being the main attraction, then I think you should step it up a notch!!! Staple part of any meal "chips" or undercooked potato sticks. Staff are very tentative and courtious at the bar, no interaction if dining in the pub. Main was served within 5 mins of taking away starters,... More

This is a chain pub but the food is actually quite good. Attended here with colleagues from work and enjoyed the food. Be careful if you attend during the day and make sure you enter your car registration in the terminal at the bar, otherwise you will get a parking fine.

My husband and I have been here on a few occasions through-out the years. Food is always great - highly recommend the halloumi wrap and salt beef sandwich. Oh and the pecan cheesecake was incredible!! Great for drinks with a couple of friends too :). Just a note, we never book but it does tend to get a little busy... More

We have eaten here in both the restaurant (upstairs) and the pub (downstairs). Every time we visit we get excellent service, even when busy, and it's a very reasonably priced place to eat/drink. The only thing I find is it gets very warm upstairs in the summer!!

Great atmosphere, great beer, and great food. The bar area was busy and lively but didn't take long to get served. The restaurant upstairs had a calm and relaxed atmosphere and the food was very good. Service was a bit slow towards the end, but overall very good. Will definitely return.

Staying in the nearby hotel and walked over for a drink. The pub was busy and quite noisy. It was a cold foggy night but we went outside to see the view of the canal and longboat. Beautiful Christmas tree inside but not the enough to lure us back

We were a group of 4 and we enjoyed the festive menu. Only gave it 4 stars as the weird orangey ice cream with the cheesecake was awful. Lovely, friendly service as always.
