We sat outside in the garden which was covered by a huge canopy. The staff were all really happy, friendly and very efficient. The food was delicious! We both had fish dishes which we could not fault. There was a lively, happy buzz and a healthy mix of young, old and families there on a Saturday evening.

Lovely location and great food. The fish and chips were really good. Peas over minty though ! Service was a little slow but they were busy to be fair. Could have done with more shaded areas as very hot underneath clear plastic roof!

We came for a Sunday roast and it was lovely, the weather was beautiful and we sat outside. The view of the river was beautiful and the service was really good. Would highly recommend. Do think they could charge more for their roast as we would of definitely of paid more!! Really enjoyed 10/10!!

We were met by a friendly guy and shown to our table, with prompt service for drinks. We sat for a while with no-one asking us for our food order, but this was done once we asked to order. From the 3 mains, 2 were good but 1 disappointing.

Sunday lunch in a buzzy restaurant. Covered terrace/garden so dogs allowed in which is a plus in my book. Nice venue for family gatherings . Food pleasant. Service very good

I'd been here before for a bag of crisps and a drink so thought I'd try it for a Sunday lunch with my family. The service was so slow, we sat down at 1pm but weren't served starters until 2pm (with a 1 year old in tow), no complimentary veg sticks for him either, I had to chase for the starters which then came quickly (so we're presumably sat waiting under a heat lamp for some time), then the mains took another half an hour to come, again some of the food was hot but the pork roast was tough and not piping hot as you'd expect. Very disappointed with the service and lack of acknowledgement of this.

We booked a lunchtime table on a Sunday with a request for our Golden Retriever to have space as he is elderly. An email confirming our request was received very quickly.
Our table was at the back of the pub which was ideal and both drinks and food orders taken quickly. Good and drinks arrived quickly and staff were all very helpful and friendly. They even brought our dog a bowl of water without us having to ask. Couldn’t have made the experience any better. Good social distancing in place and staff wearing face coverings

We had come away for 3 days in Bath to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. All staff were friendly and helpfully made sure I was seated at a table that could accommodate my wheelchair. Great service with really delicious food. Thank you. We will (and already did) recommend you to friends. Incidentally the friends we recommended you too were also very happy with your food and service when they visited.
