On arrival we were a little sceptical, the lady behind the bar was really friendly but couldn't really answer any of our questions it wasn't until later we found out it was her first week. However when our food arrived it was lovely. I had a rib eye steak which was cooked a little more than I would expect for... More

Stopped in for an evening meal and surprised to find we had the place to ourselves. We chatted with one of the owners who said he thought it was because kids were still on holiday, but it was indeed a quiet night. We had the dinner special with ribeye steaks and salad and some garlic bread. All was cooked extremely... More

We have been to the Narrowboat many times and have always had a great meal with great service. Craig is a master when it comes to cooking a steak to perfection! Highly recommended and very good value.

seven of us visited on a Friday evening for a meal and a few drinks after a week's boating holiday. The pub could be viewed from outside as looking a bit run down but this is very deceiving as once through the door the pub is bright, clean and spacious. Towards the rear of the pub is the dining area... More
