Stumbled on this pub recently on a tour of Oxford and surrounding area, decided to stop off to have some food and drink. Was greeted straightaway with smiles and a friendly word from a member of staff. After talking to this person, we found that the pub had only just been taken on by a new management team, who seemed... More

Came here to get some food on a Sunday whilst watching the football. Unfortunately despite having a large screen & pool table area we were informed that they no longer screen any sports. As a result the place was not very busy & once we had finished out food found the small pub next door was crammed with people watching... More

We recently called into the Boat House late on a Sunday Afternoon and had a very pleasant experience relaxing by the riverside watching the ducks and swans on the river and the fishermen on the opposite bank. We parked in the public car park on the opposite side of the Thames and walked across the bridge to the pub The... More

The food was excellent and good value for money. Much better than it used to be. I would recommend it to anyone who is local and looking for something good to eat. Staff were friendly and the service was quick.

Lovely setting, good food, very pleasant staff BUT the wait for food at the weekend can be excessive. We were told the wait for a snack was an hour on two separate weekends. It even took 15 minutes to get a drink. They just need more staff - the current situation is spoiling the chances of developing the business. If... More

To be honest I was expecting less from this pub simply as it looks like it's going to be a Hungry Horse type of experience. I was pleasantly surprised as the food was good quality (not just huge quantity) and the surroundings quite chilled. This was a Friday early evening and the clientele was a mix of families eating as... More

BUT there are not enough staff! I went on Sunday 7th September, a fantastic sunny late summer sunny day and they had three waiting staff which included the... More

Went for lunch . It was fairly busy with a range of people there from couples, families and groups of friends. Good pub grub with some interesting choices. Bar staff friendly. It was very nice to sit watching river traffic

We called in on our last evening of a very unhappy and unsatisfactory stay at the nearby Shillingford Bridge Hotel, and were much cheered up by the kind and friendly service from the two men at the bar. We, two 70 plus women, found ourselves relaxing for the first time for the whole weekend,enjoyed our meal, and left laughing,with their... More
