“Lipstick on your glasses”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Turned up on a rainy saturday , a great location but on entrance the children were scared by the only person in the bar as he constantly stared at them. The glasses were full of lipstick too, lunch was soon abandoned to a nicer establishment.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

We went to the frog today for a beer and light lunch but decided to have a proper meal. Even though they stop serving lunch at 3 the manager got the kitchen back up and running for us, I would recommend the mad goose fish and chips amazing light batter made with no egg and the house burger. The portions were plentiful and we were stuffed. The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff extremely friendly. It's a shame that it was raining because we would have like to sit in the riverside garden but having said that it was lovely.

“Couldn't be bothered to answer the phone and didn't do food”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We were looking forward to a meal here as it had been mentioned in a boating handbook. We rang on and off all day to book a table but no one answered the phone. We thought they might be busy so we headed over anyway, as this was to be our stop for the night. We walked into a pub with a couple of locals playing pool in it. We asked about food and were told to come back in a few weeks - they might be doing it then. With the other establishment virtually next door doing a good trade in food etc, I wonder how much longer this can stay open with an attitude like this.

Hi, I have noticed you have reviewed the frog pub. it has now been taken over by new owners, had a refurb and now there is a very talented chef on board, so please if you are ever in the area again please call in and say hello, all at the frog.

“No food even at weekends”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We were looking forward to a ploughman's lunch and a beer, went into the soulless empty bar, onnly to be told that the landlord had decided to stop selling food. We will NEVER enter this disaster zone again!
