“Nice place to stop and have a bite to eat”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

I have stopped here a couple of times for lunch and enjoyed it. The food was of a high standard and the service was very good. Lovely views of the cannal and pleasent walks. The menu and specials were varied so something for everyone and we felt our meals were good value for money. Recommended.

“We encourage all to "barge in" to this restaurant”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Our family's favorite meal during our three week trip in Europe was at this little hidden gem. The service was outstanding, friendly and cute waiters were very accommodating, and the atmosphere was fun and family-friendly. The meals were delicious, but our favorite thing was the sticky toffee pudding. We even went out of our way to return just to get the dessert! Even after being back in the states for months, we still bring it up.

“Great canalside pub, well kept beer and good food!”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

A wonderful location, with superbly kept Wadworths ale, and good food. Their sharing platters are very tasty. Plenty of room to sit in or outside - the summer months are fantastic watching the boats and ducks!

Reviewed 21 November 2011

A pleasant place to refresh yourself. The food was fine but wooden serving dishes not hygienic in my opinion. Solid service.

“Pleasant lunch”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

We had a Saturday lunch here with three generations including a toddler and a baby. The staff were most attentive and the service was excellent. The menu both for the children and adults was quite limited and I felt needed another couple of choices so that there would be something to suit all. The food was quite OK but not exceptional. The canal view is very nice and it is pleasant to walk along the towpath before or after dining.
