This 16th-century, riverside pub stands beside one of the biggest lock gates in Europe. It’s a real success story, with local ales and home-made cider drawing drinkers to the bar with its open fire, while the kitchen create British classics with a twist. There’s a street food and bar snack menu of ‘nibbling snacks’ (Swedish juniper and sweet orange roll mops), ‘munching snacks’ (home-reared sausage hot dog in a blanket) and ‘bowls’ (Thai beef salad with lemongrass). Turning to the tempting main menu and there could be a starter of black sesame tempura whitebait with korma mayo; and 24-hour lamb shoulder, shepherd’s pie sauce, potato purée, cheese and chive hash and pea medley.
