Beautifully set inn with riverside gardens, local ales, popular food and friendly service

All are welcomed here, which means at weekends in particular children and dogs are added to the mix; the efficient, helpful staff always cope with cheerful good humour. The heavily beamed bar has a huge, curved red leather chesterfield in front of a woodburning stove, a very high-backed settle, little stools around tables and fine old flagstones. You'll find Hook Norton Hooky and guests such as Prescott Hill Climb and XT Eight on handpump and plenty of wines by the glass. Leading off here are the dining areas with bare floorboards, scatter cushions on built-in wall seats, wheelbacks and other chairs around light tables, a second woodburner with logs piled to the ceiling next to it and a fine brass chandelier. They hold an annual beer and cider festival, outdoor film evenings in summer and a folk festival. A partly covered terrace has seats and tables, there are picnic-sets on the lawn (which runs down to the Thames Path where there are moorings), a summer bar and an attractively furnished marquee. It's said that this might be one of the first places that Lewis Carroll gave public readings of Alice in Wonderland.

A busy pub with a mixture of patrons which welcomed my Husband and I after finding this delightful old place from the guide listings. We ordered the sharers board for the starter which had a range of meats; plenty for 2. We chose the Ox belly and roast lamb for main which were both mouth watering with flavours. This is a real gem, we left with warm satisfied appetites and relaxed from the astmosphere; we will return for more courses.
