very nice ambience until the large group arrived at the next table, it then became very noisy with several children under 3 running around screaming (we should have asked to move to another table but we didn't so our fault) The Sweet and sour chicken...More

Saw the sign to this pub so thought we would have some lunch. The table we had looked out to the reservoir which was lovely. The food was so nice and great portion sizes. Staff very helpful and friendly. And had a great dessert menu.
