You can easily pass time away here. It's a great spot but on this occasion it was let down by the food service. Three meals were ordered at the same time. One came in a reasonable time but that was eaten by the time the others came. In fact, my wife went to see if they had been forgotten. Would... More

Lovely setting very helpful finding us a table overlooking the river, friendly polite service , very good food plus an excellent wine list. Mid to high prices depending upon your tastes , excellent light meals to a full menu. Would go back but wise to book particularly in good weather.

Headed to The trout for my husband's last day of paternity leave. We both had the steak sandwich. We waited quite a while so were rather hungry when it arrived. Unfortunately it was very cold. The rocket had also seen better days. We ate some, then left as needed to collect our sons from school. Haven't been back since.

This is a wonderful riverside venue, made famous in the Morse TV series, and we decided to visit recently for lunch. There was a wonderful choice of delicious food, and we eagerly placed our order. After 35 minutes waiting, I politely asked if we had been forgotten....and we had! Our meals had been plated out but not delivered to the... More

First time visiting the famous Trout - we sit down, a young man comes and says he's Paul, he'll be our waiter for the night. All well, we make our order to said Paul. Mine had a slight change to the menu: instead of pan fried lamb with gnocchi, beetroot and asparagus, I want to leave out the beetroot but... More

It's a lovely walk from Oxford city, along the canals with their pretty houseboats and along the meadows and the river Themse. We went to Trout Inn for lunch and it was excellent! The food was way above standard, the view spectacular and we really enjoyed this restaurant.

Atmosphere and service all good. Riv er location is beautiful. Food is just very average - tasteless meat, average quality fish and soggy vegetables. Everything piled onto the dish like a school canteen meal.

This is a lovely place in a beautiful setting. But am reviewing it as a restaurant and as such, food was nice, but slightly pricey - especially as you have to queue at the bar to order it - and portions weren't that big. Wine also felt a bit overpriced. Service was very slow. But because it is such a... More
