We had Pre-booked and was sat down almost on time. Service was spot on and staff very attentive. > I had ordered the halloumi chips for... More

They were on the 2 for £10 menu. Mon-fri. Best value for money. Only problem is, its so busy, you have quite a wait for your food.... More

Stopped while passing through, wow a modern, clean and attractive pub/restaurant. Extensive menu and plenty of tables inside and outside on a veranda or tables in the garden with a great view of the canal and boats. Friendly and attentive staff with a clean and smart uniform. We had meals from the lunch menu we both thoroughly enjoyed.

We cycled along the Grand Union canal this morning and called in for breakfast. The staff were friendly and the service and food was excellent. The most impressive thing to note was the attractiveness of the outside eating area. The tables were clean, patio weed free. It was so nice to find a pub that really takes care of all... More

With a venue like this it's our duty to make sure that it is well kept and presentable at all times and when our guests notice it too, it makes all the hard graft worthwhile. We're very lucky to have such dedicated staff that really care about the environment they work in too. Hope to see you back again soon.... More

Have been several times before and had been great. This time was very disappointing, ordered a pint of cask beer which was cloudy, know this can happen but barman should have known better than send it out! House burger was OK but over cooked. Fish and chips, apart from being a small portion for the money, fish was over cooked... More

We had a beautiful roast dinner could not fault it- even dietary requirements catered for. Only down side was the service. Admittedly it was busy at 2.30!

I am surprised to see a spate of poor reviews. My wife and I have eaten here three times in the last six months, will be going again soon, and have had good food and portions each time. The first occasion was because of vegetarian guests at home. Most local eateries offer a very restricted choice for vegetarians whereas the... More

Nice location overlooking the canal. Limited menu. Mainly pizza and pasta although the specials menu offered a few alternatives. Service was slow but friendly. Food was good quality but in our view over priced. The restaurant was incredibly noisy making conversation difficult.

Have hiked past here before and being a pre MK new town person this pub featured on many rambles across the fields. Never been in it before. All very nicely done up with fine Italian dining. Designed to appeal to the canal boating fraternity with the adjoining mariner. Very good views from the restaurant. I would say the service was... More
