This came as recommendation on our canal boat holiday as it was a very short walk from bridge 61 and it did not disappoint. We arrived slightly cold after our day on the water and we're made very welcome. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was quick, hot and good. Would recommend to anyone passing by.

Visited this pub a few times and it's great every time! We visited this Sunday to try the new menu and were not disappointed! There was lots to choose from and the meals we had were very tasty and really good portions! They had the fires on in the pub when we arrived and was very warm and cosy! We... More

Visited on Monday 31/10/2016. I was on a two day break to walk the length of the Macclesfield canal, and this was my planned lunch stop on day 1. I had just walked about 9 miles from the start of the canal at Kidsgrove, so was looking forward to a rest and a hot meal. I arrived a few minutes... More

Visited this weekend for lunch with family. Food was served within 20 mins- always a good start! All the food was well presented and tasty. Puddings were to die for. Staff really friendly.

Went yesterday for Sunday lunch, great welcome, friendly staff even with the busyness of the pub! Sunday lunch was lovely and great portion size, will definitely be back

Found this pub by chance on a family holiday and was so impressed that we ate here more than once. Highly recommended! Good atmosphere, clean and tidy, cozy. Wonderfully friendly staff. The food was delicious and the portion size perfect! Would definitely suggest the Wednesday curry night!

Very disappointing. A really long wait for our food even though there was less than ten other people in the pub. The potatoes were under cooked and hard. I was over charged and had to claim back a refund.

Local visit with friends and family to have a chat with lovely new managment couple. Extremely welcoming and enjoyed a nice atmosphere. My chicken skewer and salad fitted in well with my healthy diet choice !

Went for a few pints... Never again, unless the new management are better, please be. The staff sat to watch TV and appeared inconvenienced when we wanted another drink. The bill was wrong too, seemed to have an extra few pints on it. MrPalio
