A friend and I had a pub lunch at the Trout, although it seems more like a restaurant in that your food order is taken by waiters, and a manager roamed around the tables to ensure everyone was happy. We received a friendly welcome and...More

We arrived by boat so called in and advised that we'd be a few minutes late - greeted with a non-articulate grunt of acceptance we then proceeded to get to this lovely building as soon as possible. This was part of a birthday celebration so...More

Stayed in the suite for one Saturday night. Room runs across both kitchen and restaurant and you can hear kitchen extraction, kitchen in action, guests downstairs and people speaking in the office directly next to the rooms living area. Its not about the cost it's...More

Went here with some friends. Had fish and chips which were expensive so I was expecting something special. The fish was what we would call a Goujon up North, tiny. Chips ok. Peas were revolting, like dried out mushy peas. Had a scotch egg starter....More

As part of the Epicurian empire you know what to expect. I live close to the Crab at chievely and also know the White Horse at Chilgrove perhaps better than most...but that's a different conversation. The power in our village was off from 9 am...More

Though the mushrooms soup was delicious the rest of the food went rapidly down hill. The pork roast dinner tasted 'warmed up' as opposed to fresh, the roast potatoes were like rubber. Though there were 4 of us having pork we had to ask for...More

I think we were maybe setting our expectations too high for this place! We'd heard that it was a great place to come, but frankly, with a disappointingly small caesar salad with the surprise addition of a long brown hair (not mine!) and a peanut...More

You cannot fault the location of this pub but we were rather underwhelmed at the food and service. The menu choice is quite limited to the point that none of our party ordered a starter, all the mains were quite small which was disappointing in...More

Come and enjoy a taste of the Cotswolds with us With the river Thames on our doorstep, naturally our menus are brimming with fresh fish dishes plucked straight from the river and nearby chalkstreams - from trout rarebit or our fish of the day to crayfish from our very own river pots. But we're still a true country inn as much about forests and fields as rivers and streams, so you'll always find plenty of hearty classics, steaks and more creative plates of local game to tuck into - washed down nicely with a pint of real ale or a bottle from our carefully chosen wine list.
