A good menu with a selection for most tastes - and not everything with chips! Liver and onion highly recommended and my daughter enjoyed a vegetarian pasta dish. Service was prompt and staff friendly. Dogs can also come into the bar area.

Walked up ( 5minutes ) from The moorings and enjoyed a lovely steak and a warm welcome. Beer was good and a nice atmosphere. The pub doesn't feature in the "Broadcaster" newspaper, so visitors to the waterways may not know it's available. Well done Landlord.
