Look forward to dining here with family when we visit. Whitchurch.We also use it as a mid way meeting place for family from south. We recommended here to our neighbours & they do same now as a half way meet up with family from Midlands.

One of the better pubs in Whitchurch, a moderate selection of well kept real ale. Food is good quality and large quantities, no fancy stuff thank God. Surved food on a Sunday evening. I was not impressed by the posters on in ceiling in the bar area, but then I am an old ____.

We had moored up close by and walked into town. We arrived at 5.30 and straight away staff were friendly and helpful and the food was out of this world. The larger and beer were varied too. Will definitely be back again. The place it's self was quaint and warm and welcoming.

Love eating in this place. As locals, this is our trusty dinner date location. Great home cooked food at very reasonable prices and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Menu tends to stay the same, but this is what we like about it!

Hi Andrew A, Many thanks for your comments and our team are really glad you enjoyed your visit. We are however open Monday's, lunchtime and evening, I think when you visited it was the same day we had a family funeral, so apologies there. Hope you call again, Cheers, Mark More
