The food and service were really good. I took a client here and there was no rush from the staff. It was a friendly and great restaurant.

Friday night....... 20.00...... long week of conference calls and prats ticking me off! We got to the restaurant quite knackered and we're greeted with a broad smile and a choice of a large table or a larger one! (we tend to fill up a two person table with wine/water/beer/g&t...... and that's before the food arives.....you get the drift?) The food... More

They certainly don't try and get repeat business. Our Sunday lunch was pretty tasteless and took about 45 minutes to arrive even though there were only 6 others in our dining area. The staff are young and have not been taught to engage with their customers, Shame because its actually quite a nice venue

Can only assume there was a shortage of qualified kitchen staff on the night we visited. Cold plates, tepid food, over salted chips & small portions. One meal returned and replaced with a small portion of boney fish covered in batter. Returned again & removed from the bill. Won't be going back

We have not eaten here for about four years having had a negative experience the last time we visited. I am pleased to say it has been transformed, food and atmosphere are excellent... the Sunday roast was fantastic and the staff very friendly and attentive will be visiting again

I had dinner with friends at the Ostrich Restaurant. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was friendly. There is a framed story about the place on the wall going upstairs - which was quite interesting, so don't miss it!

We have not eaten here for about two years having had a negative experience the last time. I am pleased to say that the Ostrich has had a makeover while retaining its old charm. The management has changed and they are putting effort to give a good service. Food was good and we enjoyed our meal. Will come again.

Will never return. Shame I have to give one star as I'd rather give a zero. Took them 2 hours to bring out our main course as some staff hadn't arrived apparently. Service was lazy, appalling and frankly the owners should be quite ashamed.

I visited the Ostrich inn when I had a quick business trip, I am a high powered executive *queue applause* I was immediately greeted by the welcoming faces of Rachel affectionately know as 'Wednesday' and Sarah the general manager. They couldn't have been more helpful & sensitive to my specific yet quirky requests. I needed a room which was cosy... More

Having spent many a night here recently I feel compelled to write a review about this place - since the day we have walked in we have been made to feel like locals - the team we have met so far have been a delight and I could especially like to commend Rachel or Wednesday as we like to call...

Description
Believed to date back to the 12th century, The Ostrich on the old Bath to London road, close to Heathrow Airport and Terminal 5, is said to be England's third oldest inn. It's certainly a very fine example of its kind, combining everything you'd expect in a historic coaching inn: beams, nooks, fireplaces, crooked stairs, a cobbled courtyard and an interesting (albeit macabre) history. The chunky contemporary wooden furniture and bright colours come as a bit of a surprise, and work well with the huge, sagging beams, standing timbers and open fires. A wide-ranging menu serves good, freshly prepared food and reflects the demands of the area (the M4 and M25 are very near) and the concomitant mix of people. The specials board changes daily, while a lunch menu that is always ready within 20 minutes. A hearty Sunday lunch menu is served all dy long allowing you to indulge in a proper lie in and still have time for a roast.A private function room upstairs plays host to regular comedy nights and is available for hire for functions.
