Lunch at this pub is always good. We eat here a few times a year and we have never been disappointed with the food or the service from the friendly staff. Nice big indoor area and lovely outdoor seating area overlooking the river.

Called in at opening last Sunday to get set for a roast. All tables inside were reserved, so sat outside in the beer garden - freezing. Staff were friendly, the lamb roast was delicious, hot and worth the discomfort.

Would recommend booking, but we were lucky enough to get a table on walking in, although by the time we turned up their most popular dishes had gone (vege salads, sandwiches and soups).

Nice pub - quite large & airy. Lots of tables set up for lunch or dinner. Nice seating area outside looking on to the river though was a bit too cold when I was there to hang around for long! Burger was good too.
