What a delightful pub /restaurant with rooms in an idyllic setting. It seems so geared up in so many ways to welcome those who are walking the Thames, local or otherwise. However, on Saturday lunch time after a 3.5 mile walk with the dogs to...More

Tasteless and unseasoned lamb main, also for £21 it’s not really good enough. The produce seemed poor quality and was very tough. Also a very bland quinoa started. On the other hand the white bait and burger was very delicious. A very rude waitress when...More

Funny sort of a location but a pleasant pub appearance-wise, both inside and out. I have to say we were happy with every aspect of our lunch over the Easter weekend but I was just so stone cold it detracted from the experience a bit....More

Can't fault the food or pleasant staff but to be landed with a automatic £12.80 service charge when all you did was bring the food to my table, how else is it going to get there?

The pub has been fully renovated to a high standard with lovely furniture and decor but I feel that it has somehow lost it's character. The food was good but I felt it was somewhat overpriced for what we had. The staff were excellent and...More

We went for a family birthday meal. Looked nice and welcoming, we were shown to our table (only one's eating that night), which seemed out of the way and was the staff route to the kitchen. We would have preffered being part of the pub...More

I really feel sorry for the chef at this pub - his/her delicious food was completely ruined by the bad service. We decided to come for my birthday meal in late January. We were greeted and seated with menus swiftly, but then left for over...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.
