Lovely location beside the river, we sat in the garden. This was our first visit and we found the staff very friendly and helpful. The menu is extensive and although the outdoor choices were more limited in general we were very pleased to be told that all the vegetarian options were available to us, a welcome change from what we normally find at pubs. The pub was busy as it was Friday evening but the wait for food was as expected and when it came it was good quality and quantity. Would definitely visit again.

Visited here for a quick bite to eat with my partner, took 1 hour to deliver the food to our table. We were about ready to walk out as it turned up, the waitress didn't apologise for the long wait we had. When we finally got our lunch, the young girl spilt it all down my legs. Not once did anybody ask how our meals were. The food wasn't the best. They were all sat down eating their own dinner which I found very rude. They didn't even realised we left the building. Very very poor customer service!!!!!! Good location and great pub let down by the staff.

Driving home from a meeting, as it was a lovely sunny, warm day thought a meal by the river would be good. Had not been here for about 3 years, and must say it looked as if the outdoor furniture had not been repaired or had the cobwebs dusted off since then!

After negotiating an extremely, drunk, shouting, foul mouthed customer, entered the bar to find that service was friendly and prompt, but unfortunately the meals, from the day menu, not the after 6pm one, were, on the whole, very disappointing.

Starters: Fishcakes - OK. Whitebait, about 6 fish, (and we know they aren't very big) plus one large lettuce leaf with brown marks running through it that took up most of the plate and one piece of shop bought brown sliced bread. Whitebait, what there was of it, was tasty though.

Mains: Steak and Kidney Pie - cold, hard carrots, tasteless chips. Pie adequate. Rancho Chicken - just don't. I won't waste any more words on it.

None of the meals were worth the price paid. All in all a very disappointing visit. The only good thing about this pub is the location, but we will not be returning.
