A welcome sight about a third of the way in to a mammoth Grand Union Canal walk from Long Buckby to Blisworth, the meal deals emblazoned on the posters give you a fair idea of what to expect and you'll have been to practically the same pub a thousand times before. Steak and Chips came minus the promised peppercorn sauce but I was far too British to complain. A pint of Banks's was serviceable. Undeniably soulless despite a nice beer garden.

Visited yesterday and a bit of a mixed bag sadly.

The pub itself is very attractive - just a few miles detour off the M1 and with a beer garden right on The Grand Union Canal. The building is HUGE, with various rooms, a hotel upstairs and masses of parking.

Unfortunately, such a grand pub lets itself down on several fronts. There seemed to be plenty of staff for the amount of people in the place on a Sunday evening yet service at the bar was painfully slow. The pub is clearly selling itself on the food front and employs a rather stranfe two-for-one policy where prices are deliberately inflated (11 for a goat's chesse tart and salad!) to encourage you to double up the meals, meaning that there is no point in solo visitors ordering. Our order went awol for 45 minutes and when it did eventually arrive had clearly been reheated and both dishes dried to a crisp. We complained but little apology was offered.

Overall, would not recommend.

Seemed OK to me on my one visit.

Usual sort of meals, quite a choice, 2 for 1 offers etc. but fairly good.

Reasonable choice of real ales .

Seemed pretty crowded with all sorts (mainly eating) on a Saturday night.

I stopped here for lunch. The welcome was indifferent. I chose a table and waited for service. The barman passed me after serving a meal to a party of two. He totally ignored me. I gathered I should go to the bar to order.

When the food arrived it was mediocre, to say the least. I also thought, given the quality of the food and service it was very expensive.

The party who has served before me were chatting amongst themselves and one was complaining that the steak was not cooked as she ordered.

On the whole I would not recommend.
