We visited the pub for the first time and we enjoyed the Sunday Roast & the staff are very welcoming n friendly 👍 - The menus are good ( Ideal after a long walk along the canal ) Worth a visit if you are passing.

got the best service from Harry Todd. He served me quickly and very professionally. I had a little spillage and he rushed over to clean it up. They obviously have the best staff.

I reccomend this place first of all for the position: in front of the house (very nice) there is a calm river. In the summer, when I went to this place, I ate outside because of the good weather and view. The food was very...More

Visited this idyllic pub on the Grand Union Canal, with a friend who has MS and my dog Cocoa. The facilities for disabled are not easy if you are wheelchair bound. The pub is dog friendly and warm with a lovely log fire, most days...More
