Summary

“An excellent location by the Thames” and “inviting Tardis-like interior” draws “crowds and busyness” to this mega-popular inn. The “unpretentious” pub grub can seem “ordinary”, but most reporters find it “generous and affordable” (and if it all get too much, “just close your eyes and think of Inspector Morse”, whose favourite haunt this is).

"We have been disappointed with this restaurant on our recent visits as the service is poor by previous standards and the food has become more routine than special."
