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.
