Absolutely loved it! Went just for drinks after a long day shopping. Ended up ordering food, service was so quick and very friendly staff. Ordered beef and mushroom pie and the chicken pie. Both absolutely amazing! So full by the end as well. For the price as well it was excellent. Definitely going to be coming back soon.

Lovely warm welcoming atmosphere with log fires. I had lamb shank which was cut off the bone and type of shepherds pie served with gravy and veg. The pieces of lamb were tender and I thought it was very tasty. I also had Eaton mess which also was very nice.

Be aware that "lobster" as used in lobster and prawn, is simply shredded crab stick. Very disappointing,

We attended a funeral tea here. The buffet was lovely, and staff pleasant without being intrusive. A proper pub by a canal
