Our first visit to the Lazy Toad and we can't wait to go again. Lovely surroundings, friendly staff and really good food. Locally sourced produce - fresh and delicious. We all chose from the Specials Board and everything was excellent. We will be going back very soon!

We enjoyed an excellent evening here last night. The food was done extremely well and clearly used top quality local ingredients. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the pub itself was fantastic. Looking forward to returning soon, hopefully to sit in the garden which looks like it will be great on a summers eve.

Went for lunch. Great atmosphere, service, and the food is spectacular and worth the money. In an increasingly mediocre sector this establishment does the basics very well- go there....all of you....well? What are you waiting for?

We had not visited this pub for well over a year (and since it changed ownership). We stopped there for lunch and were treated very well indeed. Located in a beautiful village, with a very nice walk along the river close by, the Lazy Toad is immaculately clean and has a very welcoming atmosphere. We enjoyed a delicious lunch where... More

My husband booked this as a date night out. I had soup to start which was really nice and tasty. It came with bread which was a little bit chewy, and took some chewing ! it would have been better had it come with some butter really, as I couldn't catch anyone's attention to ask I ended up leaving it....

Turned up here on Good Friday without a reservation and the staff went out of their way to accommodate four of us to dine without delay. The food was delicious and served with a smile. Not a cheap meal ..... but I would say good value for money..... certainly worth checking out if you are in the area 😋
