After visiting the pub before Covid, our first return visit was meet with big smiles. The deco has been completely updated with different seating sections all complimentary to each other, great colour scheme and lovely live fires...

The food was also exceptional, with options available normally found in a restaurant rather than a pub! The pie of the day was really tasty.

Great waiting staff who just seemed so happy to be back working in a busy pub.

Highly recommend..and now want to return for Sunday lunch ...

Was staying at Dobbs Weir Caravan Park and this pub is a very short walk away, so perfect location for us. Based in beautiful surroundings overlooking the weir.

We had a fantastic server, Michelle, who attended to us swiftly. Our drinks arrived quickly and the food was outstanding.

I can highly recommend the Fish and Eels if you are in the area.

Visited with a friend for brunch this morning. It has a really lovely setting despite the rain when we were there. The brunch menu had plenty of options for us to choose from and very efficient service from Ellice.

I chose the Fish and Eels for my family birthday celebration as the location by the river is beautiful and it is also accessible for an elderly relative with poor mobility. We had not eaten there before but were all very happy with our food and Michelle looked after us very well, coping patiently with all requests. When I booked I'd mentioned that we'd like to be seated overlooking the water and this was accommodated with seating in a lovely space which we had to ourselves. We also spent a few minutes on the outside decking area to watch the swans and barges go by and soak up the lovely atmosphere. I'm sure we'll be back soon.
