|A pleasant enough pub on the quayside alongside many mass market chain restaurants, such as Nandoís, Ask, Prezzo, etc. The building seems to be made up of two halves, the end part being an old stone built traditional affair, joined on to a more modern looking brick built building with the top half covered in wood cladding. Theyíve made an effort to brighten it up with a few hanging baskets, window boxes and such like.|
Inside itís not unpleasant by any means, but has a little bit of a bland, identikit feel to it. Much of the walls are clad in white painted woodwork, covered with several old pictures. There are some dark wood strips of wood on the ceiling that seem to be more decorative than structural. The flooring in the front bar is tiles, with carpet elsewhere and some wood stripwork around the bar. Thereís a decent looking brick built fireplace at the front, but thatís probably the only feature of any interest.
Food is apparently offered all day, although I didnít inspect the menu, and there was a very 1970ís style vertical desert cabinet from which you were invited to select your dish. The best feature of the pub is the outside table and chairs alongside the river. Whilst not especially picturesque, itís nonetheless a pleasant spot to sit and sup your beer.
Beers on tap are still Ruddles Best and Directors, so these are presumably unchanging. Ciders were Bulmers and Strongbow.

|This is at least the second refurb since I first came here: okay - certainly an improvement on the twee pink and gilt it used to be at one time, but stilll a bit bland. Good for a quick early evening meal before catching a train, just as the other waterfront establishments are starting to fill up. Nice exterior and setting.|

|This used to be a locals local, but with Brayford Wharf now being the up and coming area in town itís been opened up into another corporate foodie barn. Itís a pleasant enough place in an antiseptic, not really a pub, sort of way. Weíve all been in this sort of place before so thereís nothing much else to say. Two handpumps on the bar selling the really inventive selection of Ruddles County and Directors. Surprisingly the pint of Directors I had was pretty good.|
