We visited The Pike and Eel last Saturday. Good food and drink of very good value. I ordered the rump steak. As we were waiting for our meal, I overheard a gentleman sat on the next table to us say his rump steak was as tender as a fillet. He was indeed right as mine did too. Afterwards we took...

Our family decided to go on the spare of the moment for Sunday lunch friendly staff clientele was a bit old. thought there must have been a pensioner offer on. We ordered the roast beef it was well cooked and so the vegetables. But sadly from there it went down hill the gravy using the term lightly. Was the consistency...

Visited with some trepidation having read the recent reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. We visited for dinner in the evening as a group of 6, there were no tables for 6 so the waitress arranged an extra table to join on. It's pub grub and you have to order at the bar but not really a problem. The menu...

We often have lunch here in the summer with the kids, usually opting for bagettes and a drink. We always sit outside and enjoy watching the boats go past, and docking. Lots of room for the kids to run about, and they enjoy feeding the ducks and swans at the riverside. The bagettes are generously filled and come with a...

Used to eat here many years ago when it was a popular well run establishment. Revisited recently and couldn't have been more disappointed. It was like walking into the lounge of an old people's home! The staff were totally disinterested, the décor was dated and tatty. The food was almost inedible and seriously overpriced! Do yourself a favour and don't...

I was with a group of former work colleagues on a lunch outing to the Pike and Eel so had to look it up on tripadvisor to confirm its location. There was a fair spread of opinions, some of which were quite scathing. So with a little trepidation I met up with the crew in front of a very attractive...

Consistently good value for money food, relaxing ambiance, helpful staff and clean loos. Lots of outside seating looking out over the marina. Lovely to be near the river and watch local folk swimming too.

Been here several times, the food is awful! I thought I would give it another go in the hope it was better, how wrong was I. I went with a simple burger and chips, when it came out out the plate was flooded with chips and a big dollop of mince meat between the buns which looked like cowpat I...

Visited for lunch recently. Odd system of being directed into the deserted dining room (laid with fresh linen etc) to order meal at an 'office'. Menu varied with lots of specials - mainly British. Good that several dishes also offered as half portions. The dressed crab with salad and potatoes OK - didn't realise until afterwards that no dressing had...

The third visit to eat, four of us and they couldn't get the order right. Great waitress but surly rude waiter.No apologies for getting it wrong' my first steak with garlic butter (despite emphasising no butter) was awful, the second much better and no butter. Shame I ate it alone as the rest of the group having swapped round the...
