We thought we'd come back here for old times sake but it's definitely lost that atmosphere it had as a free hours before Youngs. The food on offer was generally a bit heavy for a hot summers day. The Pork Pie was fine. We had a dryish farm cider and one of the (only) 3 ales on offer. Due to there only being one light one on I resorted to having one of the so-called Youngs beers which is no longer even a brewery, just a pub owning company. Shame as we had great memories of the DL and given it's location it should be stunning.

A shadow of it's former self but still worth a visit. An ideal location (canal side and nearly two acres of garden) for summer but they have begun to close early in the evenings in winter. This practice only deters winter visitors as one simply doesn't know if they will have a full evening in the pub or be told to leave at 7-45pm.

This pub suffers from its location (rather like the Trout in Wolvercote, Oxfordshire). The location is fantastic, by the canal, lovely trees and a playground for the kids. This means that the pub can get away with expensive, mediocre food and drinks. The place is heaving with dogs, including large numbers of small yappy ones and their irritating owners. A stressful, pricey experience.

This used to be a great pub with tip top beer and good food.Unfortunatly it has gone down hill or "up the river" over recent years. Ate there recently and food only average at best.My first pint and had to be taken back as it was the end of the barell.The replacement was OK but nothing special.Someone needs to really get hold of this and pull it around.Still great potential in brilliant setting.
