A good selection of beers and decent food in this large gastro pub. The waitress was friendly and competent. If you want a river view however, you should head up the road to the Nags Head.

Came here for lunch today. It’s currently a chill factor of -7 outside and the bar staff are refusing to light the fire or turn the heating on. WTF! No wonder there’s only a couple of hardy fools in here.
