I've never been impressed. The beer selection is fine, and to just have a drink, no problem at all. For food, I find it is okay, but the service for me (maybe I've been unlucky) has been slow and after slow service I've been rushed out for the next cover. Just a bit poor really.

We took our son and his family for a meal last night, as always the food was very good but the service was slow. It was fairly quiet and there seemed to be adequate staff but I felt that we waited a long time for each course. I feel that with children in the party of 8and3 it's more important... More

Get there early to avoid a wait. Best to sit outside by the river in the summer. Been on multiple occasions .A good price and varied menu

There’s a chalkboard on the wall here where the management suggest your comments about the place might be put on TripAdvisor! Seems somewhat foolhardy being so inviting of customers at an establishment that currently isn’t doing very well and our experience mirrors this too. If only we had looked here more recently, BEFORE we’d booked our evening meal, we most... More

Good location but not many seats in the pub, more a food destination. Went yesterday very nice but felt a little unwelcome as we did eat. Helpful staff however.

We used to dine here years ago, but haven't had the opportunity more recently. We booked a table for New Years Eve, it was a set menu with good choices. From the moment we arrives the service was second to none, they were very attentive. The food was amazing! Presented really well, and tasted delicious, very reasonably priced too. We... More

Went here for a birthday lunch on 29th Dec. Booked for 1pm, arrived on time, seated with no problems. Pub did not seem overly busy but drink order took half an hour to arrive, and that was after having to go to the bar and enquire after them. Food order was taken, advised there was a wait of 40 minutes... More

Arrived for lunch and ordered our food at the bar, was told there would be a half an hour wait for food. Starters arrived in a relatively timely manner, but an hour after our starters were delivered we were still staring at our empty plates. We enquired as to how much longer our food would be, to be told that... More
