Avoid avoid avoid!!!! The food is appalling, all frozen and tastes like it's out of a cash and carry! Table was filthy and my boyfriend put his phone down straight into yolk from a previous customer. Staff are dull as dishwater, you'd be lucky to get a smile. It all seems everything is such an effort for them. The only... More

My third visit to the Flower Pot today. Three friends and I had walked a few miles along the Thames Path and The Flower Pot is always a great place to stop. This is a proper pub, with character, welcoming staff and well kept beers. We all had a full lunch in the dining area and everyone really enjoyed their... More

We stopped for quick drink a after nice walk, looking forward to a little rest a few nibbles. The pub was mostly empty. We were eventually approach by grumpy landlord. Asked what nibbles they had, we were told it was on the board, which we couldn't really read as it was the side. We ordered two halves of different lagers... More

This pub is a hard one to put your finger on! Taxidermy and mounted fish are the decor du jour in this tucked away oasis. Only had one pint but not sure we could have stayed for much more than that. Very much 'a local pub for local people' vibe but seem welcoming should you want to join in the... More

After a beautiful walk in the winter sun along the Thames, from Hambleden Mill to The Flower Pot, the huge log fire and welcome from Tony, the Landlord, was most welcome. As hungry walkers, we were delighted not to have to wait long for food which was well cooked and brought to the table by Tony's friendly partner, the head... More

I went in with a large group of walkers who had brought picnics. The landlord confirmed he was happy for them to eat their own food in the garden if they bought a drink at the bar. The staff obligingly served us, despite the nuisance factor of most of us buying our drinks individually and a lot people wanting coffees.... More

Went in for Sunday lunch after a nice walk, place was very busy but staff were still welcoming and attentive. Food was exactly what you would expect for a pub lunch at the price.

We had cycled past this pub a couple of times without having time to stop, so when we had a midweek lunch time free decided to have lunch there. It is a really beautiful pub in a great location and an interesting interior. The food and service however are really poor. My son had the tomato soup that was just... More

The 'piss off, I'm busy' sign hanging in the small front bar should be enough to let you know the type of reception you will get, and the landlord seems to relish his surly and unwelcoming reputation, but the location is pleasant and the beer is fine.
