Never let's you Down. Great home made food and great prices, situated next to a lovely canal. Highly recommend

Aside of its canal position which is a very relaxing place to be sitting outside, a good all round pub with good food too. It does get very busy so just be aware, but the service is always good and the visit always enjoyable.

It's a very popular venue so I would say 'belt and braces' to book.
