    Fantastic meal, great food, would highly recommend this place to anyone!

    Dined here for the first time, lovely warm welcome from Sarah, very homely surroundings while you enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Taken upstairs to a very delicious 3 course meal. Stunning dishes, lovely hostess, certainly will return.

    Enjoyable day with good food, good weather and good service!

    Very enjoyable evening, very good food, excellent surroundings, pleasant staff and lastly not at any point were we rushed during the meal.

    Didn't expect to find a place like this in a little village. Lovely views across the canal and nice food. No complaints!

    Lovely, local restaurant thats tucked away from Rugby in the secluded village of Crick in Northamptonshire. Located on the side of the canal, this scenic restaurant is an ideal place for a quiet meal with friends or family. The menu always offers local sourced and produced ingredients and the menu is constantly changing. Sarah and the host team are fantastic, and the food is always enjoyable. Great Restaurant, particularly on special occasions. Great selection of wines.
