Only called in for drink. Lovely bar. There is a restaurant, which was very busy lunchtime, and almost fully booked for evening. I would like to go back on a warm day, as the riverside garden and tables looked good. Excellent staff in the bar

There are also parking bays on the road nearby if free. However the pay and display is much larger but would require a 200 m walk.
