We came here for a birthday meal after having heard good things. Sadly we were disappointed. The waiter who showed us to the table was lovely, however our table waitress was rude, seemed bored at the thought of serving us. She also didn’t have a...More

Located in one of the main streets, the restaurant/pub is definitely a great option both to have some drinks and eat. It’s decorated in a very original way, service is professional and the menu is complete, including some of the most typical British dishes. I...More

Omelette and chips in here after a trip on the punt. The punt ticket allows a 10% discount, making a good lunch even better. Charming staff and nice food in a gorgeous, riverside setting.

Try the sunday roast or meat pies. Very nice and coasy interior design by the river Stour. Quite a busy place thanks to a good location.

This is an eclectic restaurant. It has an unusual atmosphere but that is mainly due to the building. The food was nice, but not amazing. I would not go back and probably would not recommend.
