    Try and get a seat on the balconies over looking the canal. They also do a really good take on Fish & Chips.

    Fantastic Sunday menu. I had the pie sign a side of mash which was awesome. Roast also good. Great location, pretty view, but super busy on a Sunday would suggest book ahead. Service only ok.

    One of the cosiest pubs around! Sunday Roast is great, the menu changes frequently and you have the canal right there - in summer people take over the whole area around the bridge. Very unique gem.

    We had the DNA ale, which was hoppy but still nice. The view outside and the environment inside were great. However, the pint cost £5.04 - what's with the 4p?

    Sat downstairs, struggled to get waiter's attention for a menu. Then waited to order. Waiter (short bloke, dark hair) busy chatting up some girls outside. I gave up and left after ten mins.
