Three had roast lamb and I had roast beef - they were all delicious. The meat was perfectly cooked and came with a good Yorkshire pudding, lovely roast potatoes (done in duck fat, I believe), great vegetables and appropriate sauces. The waitress was lovely, cheerful and attentive. Apart from the cheesecake which came out totally frozen, we loved it!

We were 4 adults and 3 children and enjoyed a very tasty meal. The In was busy as it was a beautiful Saturday and service was attentive, but the food was a little slow.

Having not been to this pub for a good many years we were keen to see what it was like after the recent re-furbishment- it certainly looks better. The young staff were friendly and the meals arrived in good time. The only downside is that the menu ( lunchtime) was quite limited, unless you want burgers, pizzas or salad. We... More

Beautiful building over looking a perfect timeless English landscape. Sit on the wall outside with a pint, look across the fields & river to drift back in time whatever the time of year. The recent refurbishment has not taken away any of this 16th C buildings charm only brought comfort into the 21st century as we sit next to log... More

Sunday visit. Limited (very) menu with three of a total of 9 adults and kids choices not available either. Service average and not keen eating with 7 dogs either ( sorry, no issues with the dogs, but not whilst eating). Local, third visit post refurb and still not got this place right. Looks nice though....

Came here a while ago for a meal out with my boyfriend and I have to say it was one of the best meals I've ever had. Such a beautiful, cosy pub that's perfect for a cold evening. Food was absolutely fabulous and arrived in good time. Alice and Alanna, the two members of staff who interacted with us were... More

Having not received a reply to my email below (sent over three weeks ago), it is with a degree of regret that I am posting my note to the management of the Freshford Inn: Dear ......

Lovely, dog friendly pub with open fires, great service and relaxed atmosphere. Good choice of drinks and very helpful staff. Would definitely go back here - we heard the food was very good.
