Review added 24/09/2009 12:20 by John RangerMy wife stumbled across this place when she was browsing toptable.com for pubs/restaurants in the area. I have to say that it lived up to expectations. I gather from the very friendly couple who run the place that they have recently taken the pub over. They really have done a brilliant job as this place is a cosy, traditional pub but also offers restaurant-quality food (though at pub prices!). One of the highlights of our lunch there last Wednesday were the delicious starters - my wife had absolutely fantastic garlic tiger prawns and I had an excellent crispy duck salad. For mains, I had cod and chips - a very generous portion and cooked to perfection. My wife had seared scallops with a saffron risotto which she said were delicious and very tasty. As I was paying, I might add that they were about £5 cheaper than some scallops we had in a restaurant in Henley the other week!!! I managed to squeeze in a pud too - 'Affogato' - a serving of ice cream covered in espresso coffee (almost as good as the ones I've had in Italy!). One final thought - should mention that for a pub they have a really comprehensive wine list, all hand-picked by the owners, who seem to know a thing or too about wine. I'm not really a beer drinker, but I did notice that they had some real ales on tap, which was nice to see.
