A band of marauders who docked their battleship at Gunthorpe after rampaging up and down the Trent and settled down to a more mellow life of entertaining passers by with their critically acclaimed take on classic songs from the 50s to the present day.

  • "Great food, great atmosphere. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the cider is cold and the food is good! A great place to eat and drink with friends on a hot sunny afternoon and great music in the evenings." Fish 1904
  • A great pub with lots of live music. The staff are attentive and helpful and the pub had a nice feel to it. Nice to be in a genuine pub and not a poorly disguised restaurant, although they do good food and have a dedicated seafood restaurant in the adjoining 'shack'. Well worth a visit. Dyrck
