I was taken here as a birthday treat.
Service was appalling.
Staffed with youngsters who just didn't seem to know what they were doing.
No starters available.
Had run out of pork.
Had run out of horseradish sauce.
Had run out of some puddings (there's only 3 or 4 options to start with).
Other than taking initial order we were never asked if we wanted more drinks, puddings, etc.
Thoroughly disappointing - left as soon as we could.
Roast beef lunch was reasonable quality though (hence the 1 star rating).
Will never go back.

A very poor pub in a beautiful setting.

Too busy - 15 minute wait to be served at the small bar - only one person serving. Food took an hour to arrive and was average quality and poor value. Poor beer selection - only Harveys apart from poor quality lagers (Bud on tap? no thanks). Roasts advertised as coming with "giant yorkshire pudding" but these were cut in half!

There are many, many better country pubs in the area, this one gets by only due to its setting. I would avoid, especially on busy days.

No draught beer on pumps, but well kept Harvey's straight from barrel. Boats fun.

On returning to the pub....Pleasantly surprised that it's changed for the better.
Teething troubles clearly over.

Still very busy. Food improved and owner has turned things around. Dogs are now welcome where they weren't before, and although boating is still expensive it's a very relaxed garden and decking.. Had to wait to order food, but served pretty quickly.

The old regime seems to have been replaced although the pub is still a victim of it's own popularity. Harveys on tap very welcome.
