Thought me and my family would come here for a change as the reviews don't seem that bad. We arrived and one of the staff didn't seem to really know what his job was. He didn't show us to a table or give us any...More

Lovely outside eating areas with plenty of tables means you can usually get a spot even on a hot sunny day. Menu is fairly short, which is good, and it's good value too. The South Indian fish curry was delicious and a bag of biltong...More

Have driven past many times, today we stopped for lunch as lovely weather, food does not live up to location. Couldn't be bothered to return food order but wasn't impressed.. looks like it's run by kids.More

Hi there, I am so sorry that you didn't have a pleasant experience with us. If there was a problem with your food order, I do wish you had notified us at the time of your visit as we would have tried to make amends....More

I came here with a seven- and nine-year old for an early evening meal in the middle of the week. Although we love the canal side location it was too chilly to eat outside, which was a shame as the restaurant indoors smelt strongly of...More

Hi there. It was our manager who served you and when I asked her about this she remembered the transaction and said she realised she had short changed you and promptly rectified it. Unfortunately we are all only human and do make some mistakes. This...More

Lovely food, I had the pumpkin ravioli which was excellent but unfortunately very slow to arrive once we had ordered. Didn't matter as we weren't in a hurry but it would put me off going again. The pub has obviously been done up very recently...More

If you are in a hurry or you have impatient children, this is not the place for you: we ordered five mains at 1.15 and the meal arrived at 2.15. We enquired after half an hour and were told that everything was 'cooked to order'....More
