Went here for a quiet dinner for two. It was a Saturday night, but on arrival at the booked time, we were surprised to be told the table was not ready. After a wait in the bar - about 20 mins - we made our way to the table. After a further wait of 15 mins we were advised that there was a 45 minute wait for food as the kitchen was "very busy". I noticed another couple get up and leave at this stage but we stuck it out. Not worth it. Our steaks, when they did arrive, were not the best, with too much gristle. The chips tasted like oven chips. The beer was fine, but to be honest, I won't be going back there.

My goodness where do I start. Slow service at the bar for a beer, then we ordered food - well they had to clarify the order 5 times! Yes 5 times on 5 separate occasions. Starters were ok I guess, then the mains came 50 minutes after the starters. My daughters pasta dish was cold, my little ones sausage and mash microwaved and our open chicken pies were stone cold. Then to add insult to injury when we sent them back they microwaved for a minute and bought the same ones back out - yum yum. Anyhows, it might be alright for a slow beer but the food was a shocker!
We did complain and did get a refund.

A large country pub, set in its own extensive grounds, adjacent to the Shropshire Union Canal.

Catering for the family groups, and Sunday afternoon outings in the car. No doubt it captures the canal boat trade as they 'stagger' from one canal-side pub to the next.

Seems to be focused on meals rather than casual drinkers. No beers come to mind, but a good selection of wines.

Friendly, efficient staff, in a busy pub that probably caters for the infrequent visitor.

A number of benches at the front, with views of the canal, and down towards Chester.

In terms of decor and staff friendliness and efficiency, I couldn't fault this place. The interior is tasteful without having reverted to the uniformity of a 'chrome & glass' makeover. Some great seating outside and far enough from the nearby A41 not to be noisy or stinking of exhaust fumes. However, the food was nothing to write home about. We ordered the sunday roast which came fairly swiftly but was stone-cold. The mash was distincly instant. At over £7 per meal this was really shoddy and the portions were noticeably stingy. Hopefully they'll sort this out because they really let themselves down on it.

A really lovely pub with great food. A fab place to spend a sunny sunday afternoon since the outside seatring area is especially pleasant!
