Location and contact

The Trout Inn is an endearing 17th century pub that provides a stylish yet comfortable setting in which to escape the demands that come hand in hand with everyday life. Situated on the idyllic banks of the River Thames, The Trout Inn offers a moment of tranquillity during a busy day, especially if the sun is shining. With a lovely side terrace that looks onto the river, our garden space also has patio heaters that are ideal for keeping you warm, cosy and content on cold days or chilly summer evenings by the river. Extensive seating and a charming bridge joining the terrace to a private garden also add to the pub’s aesthetic outdoor appeal. And make sure you keep your eyes peeled for Krug the

Fairly incompetent on logistics. Long queues for everything. Run out of half the menu items. 45 minutes wait for a dessert, let alone main course. Staff somewhat disobliging. Needs a new manager I'd say who can sort things out.
