Booked day before for Saturday dinner with friends plus kids and dogs. Arrived early but were greeted with a smile and shown to our seats. Beer was good. Fish and chips pretty standard pub grub. Burger was excellent although a little well done for my tastes. A great option after a walk around Stowe National Trust. Parking a bit tricky... More

Really nice service in here, the food menu is typical pub grub but it's well presented and doesn't disappoint. Plus, it's dog-friendly, so it gets another brownie point from me! Nice open fireplaces which in the winter makes it very cosy, plus it has a beer garden for the summer. Right on the river - very nice.

Not sure why our experience was so different from all the other reviews. Maybe because it was midweek midday. The place was empty. The fire was lit and there was a pleasant smell of wood smoke. The staff were welcoming and delightful. The meal was simply dreadful. Maybe they just weren't set up to deliver their menu as we were... More

Had another client lunch at this great pub. The log fires were on to add to the ambiance. We both had the meatballs from the specials menu which were delightful and the bar staff were kind enough to let me try each of the flavoured pork scratchings; the "Pig of doom" are a little frisky!

Since going last they have made the garden more attractive, the inside is also welcoming with nice comfortable seats, staff are good, and friendly. Good selection of beers. A nice experience, pleased to see them doing well.

Went for a family meal, the pub is very cosy with a little log fire and low ceiling, the food was worth it and well priced. The beer was good. But what won it all was the staff. Customer service was exceptional, first pint of ale wasn't great but the bar man exchanged it immediately and was very apologetic, quick... More

Nice pub on the River Great Ouse which is great for when the sun is out sitting in the beer garden. Good pub style food as well if you are after a bite to eat.

If it's a cheap meal and a good drink you are after then this is the place. A traditional English pub. They do a good few deals such as a panini, soup and a soft drink for £5. There are reasonable sharing platters and steaks. The atmosphere is busy and organised. Was pleased with this venue.
