Beautiful pub in amazing surroundings. Lovely friendly staff and a wide variety of food including gluten free options at reasonable prices. Very dog friendly, water bowls provided. Nice garden overlooking canal and large conservatory with lots of tables and view over canal for days when weather is not so good. Amazing Sunday carvery too.

Food took forever to arrive. It was definitely not worth the wait. The staff were helpful after observing the fact that we had waited over an hour

Very limited menu! Over priced food, very basic and overcooked. Food arrived and had items missing that was listing in the menu description. Had a ploughman's platter for 2 - no butter for the bread, missing chutney, stale baguettes and not enough for two! My daughter had scampi and chips, the chips were so hard, they were more like pork scratching!!!! With enough mushy peas to bearly fill a tablespoon! And the burger was the most driest and uninspiring thing I've ever seen. Very disappointed. Beautiful location, nice staff, just wouldn't eat there again.

Mother’s Day Sunday Lunch
We are regular customers for Sunday Lunch. It is convenient and quick. Never brilliant, but easy.
Sadly, Mothers Day lunch was disappointing - Carvey with choice of 3 meats, very tender. The accompaniments, were very over cooked, carrots would suit being puréed, if they had been peeled, cauli cheese soggy and tasteless. The potatoes, are huge and not at all crispy.
The setting is perfect, especially in the summer, but really guys, sort out your food!!!

Carvery ok, the cauliflower/broccoli cheese was tasteless and the mash potato is definitely “smash” but the gravy was tasty so I smothered it in that so it all tasted nice in the end.

Staff friendly enough, however when we tried to order the roast dinner sandwiches we were told they hadn’t got any. But they allowed us to order normal sandwiches plus carveries!? So I asked how come you have carveries and you have sandwiches but we can’t have a meat sandwich with roasties as advertised on your menu and the waitress just said good question but I’ve no idea that’s just what I’ve been told!

Take it off your menu then
