Reasonably priced, friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Good food. Worth a visit. Even changed our daughters ice cream when she didn't like the chocolate sauce without hesitation without any charge. Live music too. Beer garden. Would recommend.

Went for a typical pub lunch which was very good. Extremely relaxed atmosphere and located by the River - pity the weather didn't allow for Al Fresco eating!!
