I go to this pub quite a lot, it has a brilliant beer garden overlooking the canal.I have always found the food to be top notch and they usually have a deal on where you can 1, 2 or 3 courses for a certain price. I definitely recommend it!

Always a good atmosphere but the food quality has definitely suffered lately. We have been regulars for many years but went on Sunday and were disappointed. We returned one meal untouched as it was inedible but received no apology and it was still added to the bill. After ordering one of the Specials from the board, which I was later... More

Hubby and I stopped in. He had the liver and bacon. I had the chicken wings and the cheese board as I didn't want a main. All the choices were excellent would definitely return

Went for birthday meal with partner, daughter and son law one Saturday night. Great starters. We were served pretty quickly with starters and the main course for 3 of us. My daughter ordered a beef steak pudding with all the trimmings. The staff apologised for the short delay and then the Landlord himself brought her meal to her personally and... More

My son and I dropped into Roaches on our way home from climbing in Derbyshire. My first selection off the menu was not available so I opted for the Cajun Salmon. The Salmon had a very strong fishy flavour which suggested it was past its best but I persevered and finished the meal. My son had a steak which he... More

Been here quite a few times and it's gone from really good to really quite mediocre. Last time we were in the rack of ribs were so hard I struggled to cut let alone chew them, but the other meals were ok. Tonight there were four things they didn't have we tried to order, but no apology it was a... More

Sorry to say that tonight's visit was most disappointing. Almost everything we tried to order wasn't available. I know that the weather had been good and obviously the pub had been busy but we didn't receive one apology, just a very uninterested comments that they had run out. We got the feeling from the staff that they'd had a busy... More

My partner and I stumbled upon this Luton the way back from an evening bouldering session above Dovestone reservoir. It is set on the canal back with brilliant access the the walking paths. We really enjoyed our 241 steaks, highly recommend trying all the sauces! They were delicious. The safe were all very friendly and very efficient. The menu was... More

I ordered fish and chips and could not complain regarding the fish it was lovely, however lots of bits of chips and not that great. The eating area near the bar needs a complete overhaul and the seating is very stained. The door to the smoking area is left open evertime someone walks through and it lets in a very... More
