Recently updated, generic up market feel in terms of removed all carpets and upgraded menu. Apparently run by the son of the previous grumpy landlord, who didn't run a bad pub is was just boring. Now it's actually a decent food pub, but not gastro, think massive big sheet menus, wood floor but normal pub food and ambience. It's fine and way better than many others within walking distance

I visited the Fishermans Inn on 13th July 2011 while on holiday on the adjacent Leeds and Liverpool Canal. This is a good overnight mooring. Most pubs along this canal are some disctance from it, but this one really is next to the towpath.

This pub was welcoming. The beer was good - I had a decent pint of Copper Dragon and then equally good Taylor's Landlord. The food was good home cooking, not mass produced microwave fare. They make a good effort to procure locally.

I rarely give feedback on-line but my friends and I were nearly put off from having what turned out to be a pleasent evening by the miserable message below. Whatever the rights or wrongs there of what looks like a personaility clash, I feel the record should be put straight on what is a good pub.

My pint of Copper Dragon was cloudy and tasted of sediment. When I asked for it to be changed I was given another one that was just as bad. When I politely took that back I was threatened with violence, then threatened with the police unless I left immediately. The landlord had already been rude separately first to my brother (for drinking shandy instead of beer) and then my girlfriend (for paying for the round!) He then gave the pint, which I had already had a sip of to another customer! I was stunned.

I wonder if some of the other reviews of this pub here are fakes. They do look a bit suspicious as the wording looks very similar. They read more like adverts than real reviews. It is possible that there has been a change of landlord since the reviews were done because the present landlord is so rude and aggressive that I wondered if he was in the middle of some sort of mental breakdown.

Avoid this pub at all costs. Life's too short!

I recently went to The Fisherman's Inn for a meal with my family, the atmosphere was pleasant and welcoming with a homely feel from the log fire which is situated at one side of the eating area. The service was excellent and all the staff were delightful, the landlord was very welcoming too. Once we had ordered, our meals came in good time and were piping hot. The food was of outstanding quality, cooked perfectly. Part way through the meal the waitress came and asked if everything was ok, something which i find very polite. I couldnt fault either the food or the service we had and it was excellent value for money, which is always a bonus! My family and I will definately be paying many more visits to this pub.

My husband and I visited the Fishermans on Saturday 27th November, is was cold and snowy outside. The pub was warm and welcoming with a lovely log fire burning in the lounge area. We sat by the fire and viewed the menu and the specials board, there were so many nice dishes to choose from. I chose the lamb chops from the specials board which came with new potatoes carrots and creamed leeks, I could have had it served with salador chips if I wished. It was very well presented and very hot. The meal was perfect, the vegetables were cooked just right and the localy sourced lamb was excellent, my meal cannot be faulted. My husband went for the classic gammon, eggs and chips, it also was well presented and hot,he cleared his plate and also stated that the meal was excellent. I viewed the dessert menu and was tempted with the school pudding choice, lemon sponge and custard but I was so full that there was no more room, instead I had a baileys coffee. The staff were very friendly and asked if everything was okay with the meal, which of course it was, the price was very good. We will be visiting the pub again to sample more of the meals on offer. The location of the pub by the canal is ideal, for families and walkers and the landlord was very welcoming and friendly

Went there today for Sunday lunch - adverts said "New Chef, New Menu", what they didn't say was that the chef needed a new oven - food was quite nice, but nothing was hot. Despite telling the waitress - twice - nothing was done about it. Even the 'hot' desserts arrived cold to luke warm with custard at a similar temperature. When the landlord asked if everything was Ok and was told of our probs, no apology or explanation was offered, but he charged us the full price. Dining here is a bit like fishing - you might catch the unexpected
