We had two evening meals and both times the food and service were very good. A very busy bar and restaurant but very friendly staff. I recommend the sea bass which was delicious. It is better to book as its a very popular venue.

We had room 1, very nice room but very strong smell of damp, there was a dehumidifier in the room but to noisy to keep going all night, room was cold too and didn't warm up till middle of night with a electric heater.

Booked a table for a busy night for our 20th anniversary and we had the choice of the bar area or the outside courtyard. The courtyard is split into pretty private areas with a range of seating styles and my wife and I enjoy the different character that offers, as well as the courtyard garden itself. We had a fantastic...

Oh dear. Screamed at to get out by the chef because we suggested the food was cold. Staff in fear of a very angry owner. Not a nice place at the moment. Such a shame as this was always a favourite place to go

Went here for a family meal, the service was great, the food was great and the setting is brilliant. The only thing I would say is that it is very loud in here and if you want a quiet meal or to talk it may not be ideal you kind of find yourself shouting over other tables

I stayed the night after finding this pub via Booking.com and decided that for £70 for the night it was worth a try. I stayed in room 1 as pictured and the room was done to a very high standard. The pub itself is lovely and the food was top drawer, however not much under £13. Staff were great and...

Had a beautiful meal here. Beautifully cooked and tasted great. Had the mixed meat roast and my husband had the sirloin steak. A little pricey but worth it. Pudding was delicious Had the brandy snap basket with raspberry sorbet, was to die for. Excellent service.

This is a typical old world type English country pub located beside a canal in lovely countryside. It seems to be very popular with locals and we were with 2 people who visit it regularly. The lunch menu looked good to start with but there were too many dishes deep fried and most had chips of one kind or another....
