We had Sunday lunch here and then took a walk along the river. From the inital telephone booking, the quality of service was really excellent. When we arrived we were given a choice of tables and the service was smooth and unobtrusive. My other half asked for a wine recommendation to go with his roast beef and was blown away by the excellent wine suggested by the landlord, which was spot on.
The food is innovative and - joy of joys - there were several vegetarian options for both starter and maincourse, so for the first time in years I actually had trouble choosing. Hurrah for somewhere that can imagine something other than 'vegetable lasagne' and 'nut roast'. Top marks to the Toad for giving an old veggie a moment of heart fluttering pleasure!!! Prices are high but so is the quality and the old adage holds true - you gets what you pays for. All in all, highly recommended.
