Always been one of my favourite pubs. Great location, great atmosphere and a generally quite adequate selection of drinks. I have just discovered the food and it's just as good as you'd expect. A real treat. I've had the burger, pizza and kebab and all three are superb. It's fresh!!! That's the key to a good business and you can...

Lovely hotel/pub with great rooms and good facilities. Food in hotel is fantastic and staff are all friendly and approachable The breakfast was lovely although orange juice watered down not very nice. The toast is thick cut and well received with good quality produce. The bed rooms are clean and tidy with very comfortable beds and pillows and nice toiletries...

My friend and I enjoyed a fabulous meal here last night. We had creamy field mushrooms as a starter and kleftiko as a mains. Both were delicious, piping hot and served quickly. The service was wonderful and we enjoyed the recommendation of an excellent bottle of Chablis at a very good price. Ambience and mix particularly good last night. Love...

Carvery totally cold due to no cutlery being available. When put in a complaint was told that I should contact the manager by telephone the next day to get a refund. What a way to run a restaurant. Can't get any recompense and the cost of a telephone call to complain. Well I won't be spending more money to complain...

Of course they can, I rode my back the 7 miles so parking was not an issue. I found some award winning '4 in a bed' real ale from the very local Littleover Brewery and was set for the afternoon. All that was needed to complete it was one of the lovely baguette sandwiches I saw others eating. Well this...

Had to sit in the bar area on a sofa which could do with some new cushions, had to clear our table of wine glasses and things looked a bit untidy, tables not cleared and pasta on the floor Got a table upstairs when dinner opened at...

Called to advise of late arrival; got a first rate traffic update from reception and explicit detail on late checkin including personnel names which was appreciated as the hotel is a little off the beaten track. They then called back to check on my progress. Room was excellent Breakfast speedy and tasty

Great place to eating great location next to the canal, friendly staff who are happy to help.The menu isn't massive but has a Greek twist which makes it stand out. There is a different evening menu which is larger.

Came here today with a friend about 5:30pm. Sat upstairs where there was a table of about 16 people all eating and being served food. Went to the bar and asked for a menu for the Barman, without even bothering to look at me, to say 'no food till 6pm' . He was abrupt and rude. My friend then went...
