We came here at lunch time today. Intention was to buy some fish and chips for the family. Walk the park, play in the park and have an ice cream before getting back in the car and going home. Reality. Heard some customers outside complaining about their food. And it didn't look good either. Went inside and there was a... More

Lovely location right next to the river and the ancient bridge, but it seems the management think that no more is needed. Woeful food, poorly kept beer (do they clean out the pumps? Do they even have a cellar?) and a candidate for the world's surliest manager. I'm sure there must be far better places in the town for a... More

Called in here for lunch, it was one of 3 places we looked at locally, and had researched as they are dog friendly. It was very busy, there seemed to be a buffet running in the adjacent dining room (we sat in the bar) but despite being busy the service was good. Highly recommend the Pizzas, they are how they...

We called in for Fish & Chips last week. The fish was cooked fresh whilst we waited and the resulting fish and chips were fab.

Great location and the most helpful and pleasant staff. Meals both breakfast and evening were great . The evening meals were well cooked and presented and were very cost effective. Rooms were a little small but were okay.

The desserts were fantastic: Apple pie, chocolate fudge pudding, banana split and lemon sponge. And there was plenty more choice than that. Mains were also very good except for my spare ribs, where the sauce was tasteless. A real pity, because the ribs themselves were the best I've had. And the service was excellent, friendly without being over-familiar, efficient and... More

We ordered takeaway fish and chips with the family. They were cooked fresh to order and the batter is one of the best I've ever had. We ate them on the benches outside overlooking the park and it was reasonably priced. The park is just a stones throw away and has plenty to do for all ages and even has... More

Why would a place like this charging high prices serve such small portions at ok quality. The trays for chips are so small they are actually funny. What a shame no thinking other profit 😐. I know it's not murgatroys but come on guys put something back to the customers and community! Ice cream value also not much better. Again... More
