“One visit leads to another!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

We happened upon this lovely pub on our walk along the Thames path and stopped for coffee which was wonderful and generously served with a large selection of biscuits.

We loved the friendly atmosphere and immediately booked for supper that evening. This did not disappoint - we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and I especially enjoyed the exceptional crème brulee. Apparently the cheeseboard with local cheeses was amazing as well. The service was very friendly and relaxed - we would be back if we lived nearer!

“Perfect for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

I booked a meal here to meet an old friend I had not seen for several years. The restaurant is right on the Thames and we were lucky that we had a perfect spring day - bright and sunny which made the location overlooking the river fabulous. The food was perfect for lunch - we both had the fish which was cooked perfectly and came with green vegetables and a potato rosti. The desert was also excellent - again, we both had the banana and butterscotch crumble which I was nervous about as I thought it would be too sweet but turned out to be delicious - a nice chunky crisp crumble with an excellent filling. Service was excellent - friendly, attentive but not overpowering and we had a really enjoyable chat. The tables were far enough apart so that you did not have to shout whilst the place did not lack atmosphere. My one criticism is that for a business lunch it would be a bit slow as we ended up rushing having been in about 90 minutes but part of this was that we were chatting and slow to order. On the whole a thoroughly enjoyable experience that exceeded expectations.

“Terrible Service, Dull Cold Food, Ride Manager”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

We went for lunch here on a Sunday. In summary the food was uninspiring and either over cooked or cold. The vegetarian option was a dire mess of stinking cheese kebab on a bed of fiery hot cous cous (chilli - sadly not heat) - disgusting.

The service was utterly dire by untrained and uninterested children coordinated by a clipped and aggressive manager whose attitude was not helpful.

We did write and complain and were offered a meal for two (by as manager who seems to have taken the criticism very personally) but we won't be taking them up on the offer. It's not about the money I just don't want to spend time in such a negative and lacklustre environment.
