“What a joke”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

After visiting here in october we were very disapointed on our return last weak we were disgusted to find the manager walking around with his trousers half down and backside hanging out. We also found out the chef had left. The drinks we wanted had ran out and when the food came out I though we had all been given childs meals my sons daughter's chip's were so small they came in a cup. Overall very very disapointed and will not be going back.

“Very poor”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

As a family we have visited this pub a few times since it's refurbishment when driving through the beautiful Itchen Valley. I don't know if we have just been unlucky, but on each occasion it has been sadly wanting. It always seems that they have 'run out' of whatever drink we try to order and as the place has been almost empty on our visits, I am not quite sure who is drinking the stock! What an uninspiring place - I pity the poor villagers.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

My first visit to The Trout. Took my wife's Aunt and Uncle for Sunday lunch on their recommendation. Food was very good and we were made to feel very welcome by the chef Mark and his staff. Although we live up in Nottingham I hope we can visit again.

“Management issues”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

So sad to see potentially wonderful country pub falling apart because of lack of organisation ! Most staff so willing and constantly apologetic because beer run out or too many orders and chef can't cope

“Exerlant food”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Visited here last friday and was welcomed by a very well pressented and welcoming guy. was shown to a table and offered drinks straight away. As we were looking at the menu the chef came out and talked us through the menu and even said if there is anything we want that isn't on the menu just say its no problem whitch we thought was great. Other places could learn alot from the trout about service and the exerlant food. Will definitely be visiting regularly.
