Pop in here frequently; can never fault the food. Really nice to go and sit outside in the sun and enjoy the view. Also close to the river and makes for a nice walk! All the staff here are very friendly - can't say much for the hotel as I've never stayed in it however the pub section is lovely.

We revisited following a poor experience some months ago. It couldn't have been better. Fast, courteous service and really nice food. We each had a burger with fries and a drink. The food was really delicious. For a family of 4 the bill came to £45. Not bad and we will definitely be back.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review. With regards to the outside menu, this is something we are trialling during the summer months to ease the pressure of the kitchen when we are busy and to reduce the wait times for our guests also. When ordering your meals at the bar, the bar staff should...

You certainly get value for money at this hotel. Clean rooms with comfy beds and generous breakfast included. They do need to work on their service as there was never anyone around to check us and we were waiting a loooooong time with employees walking right past us.

Twin room with comfy sturdy beds. All the amenities you would expect. Friendly staff who make you feel welcome. Relaxing to be able to see the river which runs past. The room has a full sized bath with shower over it. Everything was very clean
