Huge portions! A bit of a wait and food could have been a bit hotter when it turned up. Tasty and filling.

This is a fabulous bar. Big and airy including upstairs eating area. Our group of 7 managed to grab a cozy fireside spot. Staff were helpful in rearranging seating to accommodate. Live acoustic music on Fridays. Loads of space outside to sit and enjoy the lovely location.

Fantastic venue, it was absolutely jam packed creating a vibrant atmosphere. We ate from the BBQ menu which was just what we needed, fast yet tasty! Staff were present and attentive at all times and it was clear that despite the busy ambiance everything was under control-clearly a well managed pub! Thank you, we will be back.

This secluded pub is a perfect place to go to off the beaten track and most importantly, away from the busy lifestyle of a busy city. Sitting at the canal side, you could be anywhere in the world except in the middle of a city centre. A good range of ales and wines with an impressive choice of spirits and... More

Regularly visit the wharf but recently went on a sunny day and had food off of the barbecue they run in the outside area. Food was great and came really quickly. Staff are always really pleasant and helpful.

I visited The Wharf with a large group of colleagues. We tried to book via phone as in the website you can only book for 8. We tried to call 2 days before several times but nobody picked up the phone. It is very nice to have drinks outside but they were a little pricey. They put us on 2... More

This is a gem. A massive two-storey establishment which serves excellent ales (maybe a little too cold?) and good wholesome food. The bar staff were very friendly, and the ambiance was quiet and conducive to conversation and good company. Would eat and drink here again without question.
