Nope, it's not actually on the water, but plenty of boats moor by this popular gastro pub. It's easy to find on the A5, offers watery rural views, and serves food in both the bar and the (more formal) restaurant. The kitchen offers everything from pub classics, stone-baked pizzas, and more up-to-date ideas in the restaurant. Launch the meal with seared scallops, burnt apple purée, celeriac and apple remoulade, pancetta. Cruise on to lamb rump with dauphinoise potatoes, pea purée (given a lift with mint gel and confit cherry tomato), lamb neck ballotine, baby vegetables, red wine jus. End decadently with peanut butter parfait.
