Looks like it's been closed for a while. We visited Upton on sat 24 September it was closed. We were able to use the outside seating area,cwhich was nice. We carried our drinks from the nearby Plough.

Large pub/restaurant which was closed and we told by locals that this was the case. What a shame. It has a riverside position with a beer garden overlooking the river.

Although in a lovely location the riverside garden seating area leaves a lot to be desired. When we visited last week the area was full of rubbish and the tables were full of dirty glasses. I suggest they get another member of staff to sort this out. Should have taken a photo to back this up

Went for lunch here with my wife and although it was after the usual times for lunch and, given that we had already seen that 3 others places we passed has already stopped serving food, I wasn't expecting very much.
