Nine ladies visited this venue which was beautiful today as the sun was shining and it was like a summer's day looking across at the water. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Lovely venue on banks of the river. Lovely sunny day. Wonderful food and service. Nothing was too much trouble. The dining room was spacious and...

So pleased to hear our favourite eatery has a safe future, after uncertainty for some months. The Pike & Eel has a winning formula for lunchtimes - witness how crowded it gets! Do hope the new owners don't change too many things, and keep a lovely, friendly, efficient staff!

Went for a mid-week lunch with my wife. My pint of IPA was very good. The bar dining area is spacious, comfortable, well lit and with views of the marina and river. I had the cod and chips (my standard test piece) which was competent but not outstanding. My wife had the seared scallops with creamed leeks, which was a...

I appreciate the comments you made in your review and I have reviewed these comments with the chefs. Generally, our meals have received excellent reviews and the food is rated as some of the best in the area. I believe that your experience was an anomaly. However, I don't want any of our guests to leave without being fully satisfied....

We visited The Pike and Eel last Saturday. Good food and drink of very good value. I ordered the rump steak. As we were waiting for our meal, I overheard a gentleman sat on the next table to us say his rump steak was as tender as a fillet. He was indeed right as mine did too. Afterwards we took...

Visited with some trepidation having read the recent reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. We visited for dinner in the evening as a group of 6, there were no tables for 6 so the waitress arranged an extra table to join on. It's pub grub and you have to order at the bar but not really a problem. The menu...

We often have lunch here in the summer with the kids, usually opting for bagettes and a drink. We always sit outside and enjoy watching the boats go past, and docking. Lots of room for the kids to run about, and they enjoy feeding the ducks and swans at the riverside. The bagettes are generously filled and come with a...

Used to eat here many years ago when it was a popular well run establishment. Revisited recently and couldn't have been more disappointed. It was like walking into the lounge of an old people's home! The staff were totally disinterested, the décor was dated and tatty. The food was almost inedible and seriously overpriced! Do yourself a favour and don't...

I was with a group of former work colleagues on a lunch outing to the Pike and Eel so had to look it up on tripadvisor to confirm its location. There was a fair spread of opinions, some of which were quite scathing. So with a little trepidation I met up with the crew in front of a very attractive...
