Looked at overall rating from Tripadvisor and weren't expecting too much! But made booking as venue suited the time/place we had to be. Arrived after one to almost deserted pub - a little disconcerting!! However we thoroughly enjoyed our ham,egg and chips and the rabbit...More
Having been here 18 months ago and had a lovely meal with a fantastic atmosphere and a very friendly landlord. We visited for dinner on way home from Birmingham, the menu was huge and varied . The meatballs and tagliatelle was unevenly cooked- I suspect...More

Our first visit to this pub for a Sunday lunch. We sat outside in the large garden, and although the pub is on the canalside, the garden does not afford a view of the canal. There was a choice of three meats, beef, turkey and...More
Hey Oxford Tim!! Many thanks for that - come and see us again soon.
Navigating the Oxford Canal in a narrow boat is wonderful, but it is made even more pleasant by a couple of hours on dry land. Thrupp is one of the most popular and pretty ports of call, and it offers two options for dinner: The...More
Hi Lucio many thanks for that!! No Gastro or trying to be something that we're not. We are proud to be a pub!!
Lovely fish and chips were had. Having had a slightly lacklustre experience of their food a month or so prior, when our booked works do approached we were feeling a little bit nervous. Our fears were unfounded, and our fish and chips were delicious. Couldn't...More
