The Trout has brilliant food (varied menu, great local produce and fab quality, with good wines to match; breakfast was an equal delight!). The service we received was great, attentive and thoughtful to both dogs and humans. The surrounding area offered long walks along the Thames as well as villages and towns in the vicinity if you are looking for...

When you arrive you are charmed but the Cotswold brick and pretty building. You walk in hoping there would be more of a 'quaint pub' but there are just 2 comfy chairs and the rest is taken over by the restaurant. We were greeted by friendly staff and when shown to our room, my first reaction was that this was...

I stayed here in December with my son & DIL and my dog. I was delighted by the exterior appearance as we arrived and entered a cosy, friendly atmosphere to check in. I cannot fault the staff. So friendly, happy, helpful, chatty and all in all great service. The dog was made very welcome. My room was excellent. The food...

I loved this place! The pub/inn is incredibly cute and atmospheric. The rooms were lovely - beautifully furnished with good quality linen and sheets. We scored an amazing deal on a Sunday night - essentially if you spend £60 in the restaurant including alcohol you get your room for £40. And this then also includes breakfast. We had no trouble...

We used to make a point of including the Trout in our plans when visiting the UK, but last year it was taken over, "renovated", and the chef left. So what was a real pub with vintage character is now a very pretty pub with no character. More seriously the cooking, that used to be varied and delicious, is tragic....

I had to be in the locality of the Trout Inn - but was slightly concerned by some earlier TripAdvisor reviews. From the moment I arrived, I couldn't have been looked after better - both the bar service and the restaurant service were friendly and efficient. My dinner was outstanding (beetroot cured trout/roast guinea fowl) - excellent quality, and superb...

Room King size bed, well appointed room, with all necessary requirements. Evening Meal, we arrived in the bar before serving started, we were given a menu,with a variety of food, we choose our requirements. Whilst eating people arrived on next table and were given the menu and a 'special menu' We complained to the waitress, who just said 'sorry'

The Trout Inn at Tadpole Bridge has for many years (20 in point of fact) been a long-time local; favourite hostellerie and eaterie. Sitting the other side of the Thames from Bampton, it commands a fine riverside setting. A massive beer garden - packed in summer - sits on the banks just one side of the bridge. Occupy a bench...

Have known this pub for years. Changed management last year from being independently owned to being bought by a chain (although the chain does its best to keep that quiet as a look on the pub's website will tell you!). We've been back many times since the change but we are really sad that every time we have given it...
