A pleasant country pub with a beautiful festive interior & big menu, with several vegan options. We visited for a work Christmas lunch & the staff dealt with our various dietary requirements & menu modifications well. Service was fairly quick, despite the fact that we...did not pre-order our food. The Christmas set menu was fairly pricey (£26 for two courses) but on par with other pubs in the area.More

I stopped by for a quick lunch and had no trouble being seated, although it was a very busy afternoon! A lovely welcoming from all staff as soon as I entered. Excellent food, I had the chicken and truffle BLT, which was a perfect amount...for lunch and absolutely delicious. The staff here are brilliant, very friendly, efficient and always near by if you need them. I would definitely recommend this lovely pub to others and will return!More

Went on a Tuesday evening and the pub was nicely full with a good atmosphere. Was having a meal with my newest friend from work and we felt very well cared for by Sue, our wonderful waitress who couldn’t have done enough for us and...our experience. Her smile was infectious. The lasagna which I had was of fantastic quality! Thank you Barley Mow!More

I’d heard good things about this pub for lunch and we weren’t disappointed. Great menu selection and there really were so many things I would have had. I went for the chicken burger and it was excellent. The best chicken burger I’d had. The wife...had quorn sausages and mash but unfortunately received meat ones lol, but they were replaced 10 minutes later with a sincere apology. Service was decent and the pub was clean and not too busy. The seat we were sat in could have done with being reupholstered, as there was a hole in it, but nothing to worry about. Overall I’d recommend this pub, great if your taking the dog for a walk and or just popping out for something to eat, as the food was great.More

Many thanks for taking the time to review our pub, the cajun chicken burger is a firm favourite of our team. I'm sorry to gear you got the wrong sausages but appreciate that this got rectified quickly. hopefully we will see you all again soon.

Very disappointed with the food as I had been told it was supposed to be very good, but once bitten twice shy, we as a family won't be going back for food again.

Found that this pub was dog friendly before the long journey to meet friends. Bowled over by the service and the attention that our daughters dog was given. The Sunday roast was glorious and we all commented on how tasty it was. They even left...a bag of doggie treats on the table for the dog , and then to our surprise they came out with a small bowl of roast dinner for her too, which was free !! A welcome gesture in this current climate. Brilliant !1More

This was our first visit, enjoyed after a walk along the Thames. Both of us enjoyed a fab Sunday Roast with all the trimmings, the roast potatoes being particularly delicious. However it was without a doubt the best pub lunch our dog has ever enjoyed,...not only being provided with a bag of treats as his entree but then enjoying his own Sunday Roast, on the house!
