We hired a boat for five for two hours, we had a problem in the way back and we arrived 15 minutes late. We had to pay an extra hour (4 pounds per person) even though nobody was waiting.More

I stayed here recently with 3 of my friends as a birthday getaway. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. We stayed in toad hall which was very well maintained and the view of the river from the balcony was absolutely beautiful!! Will definitely be returning!!

Hi, That will be fine, just let me know an arrival time. When you arrive at the pub up the river you must keep an eye on your boat, we have had problems with joyriders. Kind regards. Sarah Hardick
