This is a quirky place. The environment - by the river but shabby inside is quirky. It is in an 'undecorated state'. The atmosphere makes you feel you may be in another world - another century or in a movie. The staff are pleasant and...More

We stopped here because I needed a wee. First time visit. The man who served us was very friendly. It looks very run down the side we were sat. It cost £7 for a beer and orange juice. A big turn over and people seem...More

The customer service is non-existant! One never knows who is behind the bar, as this establishment seems to go through staff more than any other establishment in the western world! That desirable personal rapport is not to be found! The Landlord, and the Landlady, just...More

Just what you need when doing long distance walking as it’s right on the Thames river path however I spent the entire lunch feeling slightly confused and couldn’t work out what look they were going for with the decor or lack of.

We visited recently while staying in Iffley. We had read some reviews which suggested it might be a good place for lunch. They were rather misleading. The food was ok, no better or worse but that sort of misses the point. It’s clearly geared up...More

My other half and I had the privilege of having our wedding reception at the Isis Farmhouse(30.08.2019). Despite carrying the weight of some rather negative press at the time Noreen was nothing but wonderful. We needed access to the venue two days in advance as...More

Initial reservations based on some rather adverse Tripadvisor reviews blown away by 1st hand experience. Early lunch as a stop on part of the Thames Path walk was excellent. Soup was hot & spicy as it should be, Ploughmans was generous with plenty of bread...More

When we were here the pub was definitely dog friendly but it was a beautiful day and the garden was full of other dogs. There was a great band playing in the Isis and I did note a number of well behaved dogs there. The... More
