Haven't been to this place for about 4 months. Seems like there is a whole new team under new management and they were delightful and the place was heaving. Still quite a limited menu for my liking, but good food. Great to see it back...More

Nice pub, great location,staff where friendly and fairly attentive but the food was really not great! The chef clearly doesn't taste the food because everything was either way to strong flavour wise or not enough. A higher skilled chef would turn this into a great...More

I was very much looking forward to visiting The Trout as so many people had told us about it. The location is fabulous! We booked in for a weekday dinner. When we arrived we were sat in a small side room which although pretty, lacked...More

Come and enjoy a taste of the Cotswolds with us With the river Thames on our doorstep, naturally our menus are brimming with fresh fish dishes plucked straight from the river and nearby chalkstreams - from trout rarebit or our fish of the day to crayfish from our very own river pots. But we're still a true country inn as much about forests and fields as rivers and streams, so you'll always find plenty of hearty classics, steaks and more creative plates of local game to tuck into - washed down nicely with a pint of real ale or a bottle from our carefully chosen wine list.
