“Great pub grub”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Brilliant atmosphere, packed on a Friday evening. Great service, couldn't be more attentive or enthusiastic! Crab tarts, scotch eggs, fish and chips and great steaks. A real local with a lovely land lord and really great staff. We went back the next day as there was a local market in the gardens... Goring is the perfect place to unwind and while away the time. A must for visitors and locals alike.

“Great welcome to a good English Pub”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

The landlord is a real character (far too tall for the low ceilings), very welcoming to a busy pub. The food is very good and reasonably priced

Well hello TheCrofties! Yes the pub really is a bit on the low side in places, but comments like yours make the odd bump on the head an easy trade.

Come and see us again soon!

“Super Sunday”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We spent most of sunday afternoon at the Catherine Wheel, in recovery mode after a huge night out, mixed bag of friends etc from far and wide (some from Spain). Sat in the sun which helped, however, the great atmosphere, sunday lunch (yum), Bar B Q (also yum), banter, garden jazz band etc all made for a really super sunday. When it got cold we went inside and there was more live music! - could not have been better. FAB

Dear Lofty680

We're all delighted that you had a great bank hol Sunday - wasn't the music fab! We're organising some more music soon so keep an eye out on the website for upcoming events. We're hoping to arrange a candle-lit carol evening as well so look out for that too.
