We haven't been to the Willeymoor for quite some time. Tonight we realised what we'd been missing, good food, friendly staff. Dogs allowed which is a real bonus for us.

We popped into the the Willeymoor having driven past many times. Beautiful lockside location and blessed with many period features. Good range of beers and extensive menu. We will be returning soon. Can recommend the curry...almost too much to eat at lunchtime
