We used to make a point of including the Trout in our plans when visiting the UK, but last year it was taken over, "renovated", and the chef left. So what was a real pub with vintage character is now a very pretty pub with no character. More seriously the cooking, that used to be varied and delicious, is tragic....

I had to be in the locality of the Trout Inn - but was slightly concerned by some earlier TripAdvisor reviews. From the moment I arrived, I couldn't have been looked after better - both the bar service and the restaurant service were friendly and efficient. My dinner was outstanding (beetroot cured trout/roast guinea fowl) - excellent quality, and superb...

Room King size bed, well appointed room, with all necessary requirements. Evening Meal, we arrived in the bar before serving started, we were given a menu,with a variety of food, we choose our requirements. Whilst eating people arrived on next table and were given the menu and a 'special menu' We complained to the waitress, who just said 'sorry'

The Trout Inn at Tadpole Bridge has for many years (20 in point of fact) been a long-time local; favourite hostellerie and eaterie. Sitting the other side of the Thames from Bampton, it commands a fine riverside setting. A massive beer garden - packed in summer - sits on the banks just one side of the bridge. Occupy a bench...

Have known this pub for years. Changed management last year from being independently owned to being bought by a chain (although the chain does its best to keep that quiet as a look on the pub's website will tell you!). We've been back many times since the change but we are really sad that every time we have given it...

Fabulous location next to the river. Great on sunny days. Nothing else within walking distance however. Nearest village is a car ride. Accommodation was reasonable but not stunning. No shower in my room.. room 6.. just a bath in centre of room. Not very private if your sharing with the kids! And it is supposedly a family room! Food was...

There was ample parking; great indoor space with cosy atmosphere. Sitting outside on the terrace by the river, watching the boaters, and admiring the ducks, swans and peacocks, was magic! Add to that a Fanny Berry cider and you are in heaven.

Despite reading bad reviews at the top of the listening I still booked this pub for Sunday lunch with my family. On entering the pub I was so impressed but with no welcome at all.

I'm not one to write a bad or flippant review and generally will give a place a second chance before doing so to qualify my first experience. My first trip was lunch with friends we felt ignored throughout and two other tables had a much worse experience with no menus, delayed and disconnected plates at the same table, and drinks...
