Lovely spot by the river. It is a bit dated and could do with a makeover, however, the friendly atmosphere and staff made are stay a pleasant one. We had room 1 which overlooks the river and was bright and airy. Beds very comfy and nothing was too much trouble for staff there. It's not a 5 star but in... More

Great spot by the river, evening meal was to a very good standard. Missed breakfast as I had to be away early so they bought me a beer to make up for it ! I had room 1 which has great views across the river, yes the shower room is small but has everything you need. Friendly staff to which... More

We arrived and booked in at the bar, which smelt of stale beer and showed no sign of being a reception area. We were shown to room 1 which appeared nice but we couldn't open the windows because there were people drinking and smoking just beneath the window. The bathroom was nothing more than a long cupboard! Although we were... More

Firstly let me say the people seemed friendly enough but not surprised when we left! Pictures looked nice on Laterooms, as did reviews "hidden gem" sounded good! However when the lady took me up to the room and opened the door to find a slept in looking bed, I apologised and we left. The location looked lovely beside the river,... More

We did not have any issues with finding the venue via the GPS. We arrived at 10pm and were shown to room 1. A decent sized living space with plenty of storage. The bed was firm but comfortable. The room was warm/cool enough. The view we saw in the morning was very nice. The curtains don't keep out the light... More

I stayed here one night, with two friends, whilst walking the Thames Footpath and our experience was mixed...I had a delightful room overlooking the river and can honestly say I had the best night's sleep I have had for a long time. I was also lucky in that I had my shower as soon as we gained access to our... More

CONS : No recognised postcode. Difficult to find. No telephone number on late rooms confirmation. Took us almost 2 hours to find it from Oxford city centre, a distance on sat-nav of 11 miles ! Very dated, like stepping back to the sixties, could do with demolishing and starting again from scratch. When we arrived it was closed and in... More

Met here for a meal with family and friends. Save to say never again. Whole place was filthy staff need a course on basic health and hygiene. Waitress/barmaid was walking around with a towel over her shoulder with her long hair dangling on it then brought our food to the table holding the plates with that same towel. Lovely setting...

A very friendly pub in a lovely location by the River. A bit quiet when we stayed, I think things will get busier later in the year when people from the nearby holiday sites visit. Staff were friendly, room was a nice size with lovely views of the river. A little bit isolated, but ideal for a quiet weekend and... More

A quiet January Saturday night stay and it was superb. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for owner Peter and his wife. We had room 8 spotlessly clean and decorated with a great view over the Thames and access to the roof top balcony. Definitely planning summer trip to enjoy that. We had a meal.which again... More
