We had cycled past this pub a couple of times without having time to stop, so when we had a midweek lunch time free decided to have lunch there. It is a really beautiful pub in a great location and an interesting interior. The food and service however are really poor. My son had the tomato soup that was just... More

The 'piss off, I'm busy' sign hanging in the small front bar should be enough to let you know the type of reception you will get, and the landlord seems to relish his surly and unwelcoming reputation, but the location is pleasant and the beer is fine.

Please note that I am giving one star because it is not an option to give none. My family and I decided we wanted to go for a nice Boxing Day walk along the river and stop into this pub on the way for a nice drink and a snack. It began by the already terrible service at the bar... More

I popped into The Flower Pot today, for the first time. It won't be my last. It's a quirky pub, full of character and serving up well kept beers and really good food. My walking partner and I had the steak & kidney pudding and the cod, chips and mushy peas for lunch. It was a welcome stop during our... More

Popped in for dinner on Saturday evening and we were not disappointed. The meals chosen were Ribs (my son's favourite), Cottage Pie and I had Chicken and Mushroom Pie. All three meals were really good and we did not have room for a pudding, but there was a good selection of those.

Went for lunch on a Sunday, the food came quickly but was average. When I asked for sauce I was directed to a stock of different pots of sauces to pick from, I don't mind sharing a pot of sauce but would prefer if they came with a spoon for serving or in a squeeze bottle so that I know... More

Lunch today was okay. A bit pricey, and mine was not very good, but others were happy with their meal. However the main disappointment was that initially there appeared to be a large selection of branded sauces bottles (Heinz, HP, Hellmans etc) but what was in them was certainly not the branded products, it tasted like cheap wholesale catering stuff....

Lunch with friends on a cold, foggy Sunday and this was the chosen spot. We planned to have lunch then walk along the river for some exercise. As the portions of food were large, the walk was certainly necessary. I opted for the liver, onions and bacon served with mash and gravy and cabbage. Sounds ordinary but it was really... More

This pub is situated about 200 mtrs from the Thames Path and is an excellent stopping place for a meal. From the outside it does not look particularly inviting and the interior is quirky but the food was execellent. There is a garden area that is very popular during the summer months. A good selection of "specials" as well as... More

4 of us arrived for coffee on a long walk. It was 10.55 am. The landlord appeared from the other side of the bar after we overheard him moaning about the fact he had a customer. He told us he didn't open until 11am and walked off. Will never set foot in the place again. It should be closed down!
