During a business trip I was looking for a pub to watch some football (champions league). I found this pub, had a few ciders and ordered a burger... That burger was amazing!! One of the best burgers I ever had.

Nice pub. Had wine and appetizers, both were good. Staff was helpful and friendly. Food was a little delayed but was tasty. We had fish and chips and chicken tappas.

Much larger than the entrance would suggest. Head for the back of the dining area where there are large windows looking out over the lake. Good food and drinks and reasonably priced, for the area! Friendly and helpful staff.

It looks like a pub but the choice of beers is poor, food has nothing special. It's very noisy. If you want to watch a football match, that's your place
