Found a great traditional pub with a full varied tasty menu, friendly staff, good atmosphere a perfect way to spend a Tuesday evening with family. I would definitely recommend this pub.

Disappointment when we visited tonight. Recent menu changes have resulted in a much reduced choice of eating options. Fish and chips is no longer on the menu! (Waitress said that cod was too expensive) Lamb is no longer on the menu - a real disappointment...since there were previously 3 superb slow cooked lamb dishes available. Pumpkin Vegetarian lasagna has now gone - to be replaced by a soya mince option. We have been regular casual visitors for a number of years but the reduced choice will inevitable lead to fewer visits. The food we did have was however still nicely presented and good.More

Jusrpt been for the first time will definately go again. Food was really good liked the fact that they do smaller portions. Menu gives such a wide range you could dine several times with a different meal each time.

I no longer live in Abingdon but finding some where to take my mother out when visiting is never easy, But many times we have chosen here and pre booked. Easy to book on line and great website to see the menu etc. we received...a friendly welcome as always, a good selection of dishes i think would suit most taste and diets. You can get a good pint off beer too. you have a choice of inside and a huge outside area now too. many thanksMore

My in-laws normally have lunch here once a week so they have really missed the place. I took them and my wife there for a treat and it was great. The menu is not as large as it used to be but I think that...is understandable under the circumstances. We were the only people inside the pub so the service was first class. The kitchen was as good as always and we all enjoyed meals greatly.More
