Wouldn’t return, service wasn’t great! Got given the wrong drink then the wrong meal, food wasn’t great either.. Was full of what I would call ‘the locals’ being loud and rowdy! Didn’t feel overly comfortable.

If your table does not overlook the canal you could imagine yourself at Watford Gap, or indeed the motorway service station of your choice. For indifferent service, vanilla music choice, plastic decor, soapy beer (pipes?) and universal menu you could indeed, sadly, be anywhere. Take...More

Hi although we don't allow dogs into the restaurant we do have a lovely large garden with gazebos and tables and chairs in which you are more than welcome to use and admire the scenery.

Hi, the tow path is on the other side of the canal from the pub, but the road bridge is not far away, about 100m. I don't know if there are seats along the towpath, sorry.
