Unplanned lunch stop here when the boat broke down but pleased we decided to go inside for food rather than wait on the boat for repairs. Really good sized portions and very reasonably priced. Good variety on the menu and tasty food. Would recommend if you're passing.

Lovely country pub, excellent staff and a variety of cask ales available, a large selection of spirits and draught lager also available. Food is lovely and also barrel and stone pizzas available. Would highly recommend to anyone.

The best of both worlds as once inside you a transported in to a traditional English country pub with the customer service to match where even on your first visit you a treated like one of the regular's, great food and service, good selection of beverages, a nice quiet bear garden area and cannel side seating and only yards away...

We visited here on a weekend a lunch. The staff were really friendly, the alcohol was reasonably priced and the food was delicious. Most pubs seem to charge a fortune now for food, but this one still had pub classics at really reasonable prices. A great little pub!
