“ Really enjoyed our meal. Proper pub food was just what we needed and this didn't disappoint. The staff went out of their way to open doors and get a highchair for our little one. The place was clean and reasonably priced.”


Rachael MacLeod

"Everything was really good from the staff, facilities, atmosphere & mostly the good. The children's ice cream with miniature smarties, wafer & chocolate sauce went down a treat with our daughter.
Definitely will return in the future if over in that direction."


David Harkness

"Stopped by on the off chance of food and were blown away! We are lactose intolerant and the menu was very easy to navigate for all allergies, the owners even went the extra mile to make sure we had a desert,
not something we are used to!"


Ben Jones

"Had a Sunday roast there today, it was first class and would recommend, welcome and service was really good and coffee by the river (about ten yards from the restaurant) was so peaceful and beautiful."
