Great food inside, a buzzing atmosphere outside, and in summer the place is heaving. They try hard to give us music and fun evenings. I bring everyone here.

Now the sun is coming out this is a great venue to relax by the riverside and enjoy a few cold ones watching the world go by. The prices are at the higher end for good pub grub but worth it. Always a bustling atmosphere, very busy when the sun shines!

The perfect place for a summer drink by the river. Live music and a party atmosphere every Sunday and whenever there is rugby on. Just get there early or risk not being able to get in!!!

Great food and a decent place but the whole experience is let down by a rude, obnoxious, arrogant GM who has no respect for his customers.

Also they don't ever answer their phones (I phoned 35 times in a 10 hour period) so good luck trying to get a reservation.

Don't bother - you can find much nicer beer gardens and pubs for half the price and for a much nicer experience.
