Great location for lunch on a sunny day along side the canal. The beer was very good but with the excellent weather it was obvious that the staff were unable to cope with the number of customers ordering food. There was a very long delay...More

Sadly, they have not learnt from previous reviews. I ordered the mixed ploughmans now at £8.25. A very small piece of cheddar, 1 sliced of pre-sliced process ham a small baguette that had been microwaved into life. Lovely location but very poor value on food....More
