Had a fantastic meal. Roast beef with a melt in the mouth Yorkshire pudding and freshly cooked veg. Followed by an equally delicious pudding. Very impressed! Lovely setting too.

4th time we have been back for Sunday Lunch. Unfortunately due to "staff shortages" we had to eat in the bar as the conservatory was closed. It was very cramped and it was very claustrophobic we would have stayed for desert but we decided to leave instead. The food was nice but still not as good as the first couple... More

Evening dinner - last time we were in the area we thought we would give it a try. Was okay, but thought it was a bit expensive for the food on offer.

By chance dropped into the perfect English pub in early September. Not a planned meal but ended up with a light supper. Good portions of excellent simple food very well presented. Beer at £3 per pint from Donningtons!! But the special extra was the excellent, competent and friendly staff. Will be back to stay in their rooms overlooking the river.... More

Spent a fab couple of hours playing dominoes and drinking rather nice Merlot. In fact 3 glasses 😊 Friendly staff and good simple food. Will definitely return, especially in better weather so we can enjoy the wonderful riverside setting
