My boyfriend took me here for my birthday meal, also happened to be Easter Sunday. Beautifully decorated and food was gorgeous! Tried a Brazilian monk cocktail that went down perfectly! Had the beef dinner, absolutely gorgeous and very well presented! Will definitely be here again!

Called into this pub after an event in Manchester and although it's hidden away in quite innocuous surroundings, once found this canal-side gem is quite the treat! The staff were warm and welcoming and very accommodating. We opted to sit outside as the sun was blazing and had the advantage of watching the boats sail past. We both ordered the... More

My son and I are regulars here now and always get a high quality meal and excellent service. On sunny day there is nothing better than to sit by the canal with a cold drink, and this place delivers great food into the deal as well. A wide and varied menu and excellent bar.

Came for breakfast which was amazing, I asked the member of staff if I could have mine without egg due to an allergy and was very pleasantly surprised when she asked if I would like extra sausage or hash browns as a replacement, most places just leave the egg off and I have become used to paying for a meal...

We decided to visit for Sunday Lunch as I couldn't be bothered to cook. What a lovely surprise, fantastic, tasty hot food and they don't hold back on the portions. The staff were friendly and very helpful, our waiter Dan was lovely and nothing was too much trouble . The best Sunday Lunch In a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Tend to go here a couple of times a month and never had a bad meal. The food is always excellent and well worth the wait. I believe Friday and weekends are really busy so Tuesday night for us. Not to be missed if in the area. A great relaxed setting.

Yet another excellent visit with my son. The venue is relaxing, a canal side setting, quiet and serene, the hospitality is warm and the food is of an excellent quality every time we go. The menu is wide, my son had the half pound burger and marvelled at the quality, and i had a lovely piece of smoked haddock. The... More

Visited with a friend. Had a burger which was nice, it had chicken on it also - which was tasteless! Restaurant and outdoor space - lovely. Toilets - a different story - rust radiator, tap which didn't work - really let it down! Pricing wasn't too bad...
