Smallest pub in Britain but it great. Some great beers to choose from clean and a balcony with a great view of the lake. Staff very friendly and helpful would recommend a visit and would go back again

Nice to sit outside at back of pub looking over the lake eating a pork pie and a cold drink. Pie was lovely. Nice little pub and toilets were clean.

Lovely little pub with the one very small room but a great terrace overlooking the lake. Very attractive place with stunning hanging baskets. Good choice of beers and sat on terrace watching the air show.
