we ordered starter to be shared between all six of us it was very good . We then ordered main courses they took some time to come ,for the price we paid we all decided they could have been larger .The children said they could have eaten more The waitress insisted on calling the adults darling which was very annoying.

A must go to place if in the area. The RestroPub straddles the cannel close to a newly constructed Narrow boat marina so plenty to watch as you dine. The Pub has been opened up to give more seating and great views down the cannel with wide windows to the rear, yet has managed to keep the rustic charm what... More

Our waiter was great and provided a really good service all evening. Our pork belly nibbles were also really good. Unfortunately that is where the good points end. We ordered a baked Camembert for starter with sour dough. Although we got the Camembert we didn't get the sour dough and just a baguette type bread instead. We should have been... More

Discovered this pub accidentally when meets no my accountant 18 months ago and love it. Staff are incredible, food is divine ... a lot of it finished off n the pizza oven and the setting is idyllic. Even managed to find a cycle route to get here to justify all the calories I can consume. Highly recommend trying the Calzone... More

The navigation inn is great and menus are extensive and great for gluten free! However sometime food isn't good to the standard expected - especially when it's busy!

This was a second visit to the navigation inn for a meal. The restaurant is very well set out a nice environment. Our second visit was a huge disappointment. On arrival we were greeted by a member of staff who could barely speak English. The menu options are good however 15 mins after taking our order we were advised they... More

We arrived early for our booking. 12:15, our reservation being 12:30, with a maximum stay of 2hrs for a couple. It was a Valentine's Day treat so we wanted to try somewhere considered special by reputation.

Hey Charles P Thanks for the review of your Valentines meal - we're pleased you enjoyed your time with us. Sorry to hear you weren't a fan of the side-room where we were going to seat you, totally understandable though considering your eyesight, and we're pleased we were able to accommodate for this. In the future, it might be worth... More

Eaten here a few times in the last year. Always very good food and service. Great brunches. Fantastic interior decor and dining experience coupled with great views from the window seats make for a memorable visit. Excellent Sunday lunches. Josper prepared food gives an authentic barbecued taste. Always a few specials on but would be 5 stars if they changed... More

We visited the Navigation with friends for Sunday lunch. The Roast lamb was very disappointing and poor value for money. My wife ordered the Butternut squash only to be told after 10 minutes that it was unavailable, the choices for a vegetarian are very limited. The drinks are expensive £8.50 for a large Merlot??? Compared to other restaurants locally the... More

Hi Phil_Raw2013 Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear the lunch your wife ordered was no longer available - whilst we always try to have enough stock for each meal, we use fresh, locally sourced produce so when we run out, there's little we could do at that moment. We're confident though, that... More
