Chose this waterside pub for a family meal. We were impressed by the wide choice of dishes available. We each made a different choice and each was delicious. The pub has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

We had a lunch in here of Chilli jacket potatoes, food was good with prompt service, in a very nice location and atmosphere. Only worrying thing is the very big menu, it can't all be fresh surely, but a good choice.
