Outstanding - 3 perfect meals, including the best mixed grill I've ever had. And I've had a lot.

We had friends staying with us from America and after a very busy day out wanted to take them for a meal. We chose the Tame Otter as we had been before and enjoyed that visit.
Our friends liked the building and thought the food/service was very good.

I have not been here for a few years and I feel that I’ve missed a very good dining experience but will not miss future visits

Disappointed after paying 35 each for 3 courses. Main course was nice but meals were small and not good value for money. Had to pre order which meant we were quite rushed. Chairs badly needed recovering an we were in a draughty corner. Would like to try again on a normal evening when it might be better value.

We stopped here before we went to the snowdome as it was only a short drive. Food was lovely, child friendly pub with a good selection of food options for kids. Reasonable price. Would recommend and will go again when in the area.

The Tame Otter is a very pleasant licensed premises with a cosy atmosphere, but we did not find the food very tasty or of good value. The staff however were very pleasant. We were also kept waiting quite a long time between courses, especially the wait for Baileys coffees after the meal they were cold when arriving at the table. I would rate the experience 5 out of 10 overall!

Very pleasant location on the canalside, good for pre or post meal walking. We enjoyed a tasty and well presented Sunday roast. The beef was excellent. Prompt and friendly service. We shall return....

We l8ke going to the tame otter as it is local but this visit the fish was not very nice. What was funny was the wsitress said she would take it off the menu and they were still serving it when we left only consolation was they took it off the bill

Great for an informal business lunch. Although the pub was busy the atmosphere was calm and relatively quiet. Food selection is good and the service was quick and friendly.

One of my favourite food pubs and always a pleasant experience.

Arrived on time but table not ready so had to stand around and wait .it was busy but eventually someone got us a drink but we had to stand holding wine and a bottle of water as there was nowhere to put it as our table wasn't ready.When we got to the table there was food debris on the floor .The waitress was nice and served us well and the food was good.
