Relaxing pub which was friendly and easy to find..... Food was good and not too expensive we were hungry post walking around for hours. Hubbie had the Burger which he liked and I had a Pie.... Wasn't rushed and service was good.

Visited with friends to have a drink and we ended up staying for food as well. The wine was lovely, as was the friendly bar staff who served us. We ordered wagyu burgers and they were honestly the best burgers we have ever eaten. Well done chef! Will visit again next time we are in the area!

We went here for Sunday lunch at about 2pm. Although the restaurant was full (we hadn't booked), we easily got a table in the bar and were served at the table as opposed to having to go to the bar to order. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the good - I had one of the best nut... More

Booked a table for 5 overlooking river for 1.30pm. We were seated without delay, upstairs at the window. Menus presented immediately and drinks order taken. Restaurant very busy, but drinks arrived within a few minutes and food order taken. Friendly staff. We all chose various roasts which arrived within 15 mins. Huge portions, nice tasty food. Second round of drinks... More

After reading all the bad reviews I was a bit worried about coming here with friends for a meal. But I have to say we didn't experience any of it, the place was clean, as were the toilets, service we couldn't fault. All of our meals were lovely. Will definitely be returning in the future. I loved the lay out... More
