Great food reasonable prices and surrounded by nice friendly people
Arrived after working 7 locks, in the rain,on my own [widower]
Stumbled into a PROPER Pub,complete with open Fire and a Friendly bunch including a Parrot!!!
Ordered HOME MADE beef stew and dumplings which arrived promptly and WAS home-made and truly scrumptious...
I shall certainly recommend this little treasure to fellow boaters..! Great Value TOO..
Such a change from Gastro pubs with their pretentious /expensive 'drizzles and "Hints of" §
If you require honest ,cosy head to the Anglers!! Karl.

Whenever we visit the reservoirs, we always go for lunch at the Anglers Retreat. We have tried to eat at the other pubs nearby but the standard was never the same. The food is fresh and always served hot- (something that I have had to complain about elsewhere). The garden is of a decent size, and is lovely in the summer time – especially with the aviary. The staff were polite and friendly – they were more than happy to suggest walks around the local area, and were attentive during our meals. Prices were very reasonable! Another bonus, as other pubs in that area tend to over price their menu due to the location. I cannot stress enough how much we enjoyed the food here and we look forward to visiting again!
Rude staff and appalling service - we gave up!
We visited the pub on a sunny Saturday lunchtime, looking forward to enjoying some of the home made food. We attempted to order 4 times over the course of an hour, only to be told each time that the kitchen was very busy and could not take further orders for "15 minutes".
I could hear shouting and swearing coming from the kitchen area and the staff looked very and were not interested in communicating with their customers. - we gave up and headed for the Red Lion pub a couple of miles up the road!
A dreadful experience - don't bother !
