We stopped here for a drink and light lunch on a weekday. It is a huge pub that stretches back a long way from the main street to the canal at the rear.
There was a good selection of real ales available. We sat outside and overlooked the canal which was nice. A good spot to sit out.
There are 2 large bars in the pub which was almost empty when we visited, although there were 4 or 5 couples sat out at the back. And strangely you can only get real ales from the top bar.
The beer and wine were excellent and the food was very good too. My partner had a chicken and bacon salad which was very nice, if a little on the large side. The cheese and onion panini that I had was nice too.
The tables outside were grubby and we had to ask for ours to be cleaned before we ate. And when I went back to the bar later for a drink there was no one in attendance on either bar. After a 5 minute wait we gave up and left.
I would return here again. The pub does have more potential and with a little more care and attention given to service, I think the drinkers/diners experience would be improved.
