    Oh dear, this started so well but ended so badly I'm afraid. I had mistakenly entered incorrect Satnav details and was a bit late for my booking. I phoned them and they were friendly, helpful and accommodating and moved our booking by 30 minutes. Our table was pleasant and comfortable and the Donnington SBA cask ale from the nearby Donnington Brewery was wasn't bad at all. We both ordered the fish and chips at £18.00 each. When it arrived it was all fine and tasty except for what should have been the star of the meal. Sadly, the fish was nearly all overcooked batter and that batter contained very little fish. My wife's fillet of cod was almost non-existent within the batter. My piece of fish was marginally better, but not really acceptable. My wife complained when our plates were removed at the end of the meal and to be fair, without any argument whatsoever, she was told that she wouldn't be charged. However, our meal was spoilt and we didn't much feel like a pud or coffee now. Amazingly, this is not quite the end of the story. Before we left my wife paid a visit to the ladies toilets. These were close to the kitchen. As she passed she could hear by the heated language that there was a nasty argument going on. When she was ready to leave the loo she could clearly hear the very worst of language (all 'F' and 'C' swear words unfortunately). She was actually a bit frightened and cowered in the toilets for some minutes until she heard a female member of the staff calm the nasty row. We were only charged for the drinks we had on our visit. The pub/restaurant are to be congratulated on doing that without argument after they became aware that we were served sub-standard food. However, it is clear that all was not well with the restaurant function of the pub on the night we visited. Nobody should have to witness and hear the language that my wife heard on an evening treat out. Our meal out on the last day of a Cotswold was sadly ruined.

    We were welcomed very warmly and seated at a table in the lovely restaurant area, which is light and airy, and overlooks the river. There was a good choice of food, though only one vegan option for a main course. The roast beef was well cooked: moist and tender. Portions represented fairly good value for money. We would definitely dine here again.

    My main issue with this Pub may not be an issue to lots of people. Personally I don't want to eat in the company of dogs. I asked to be away from them but unfortunately on the day they sat people with a really rather smelly dog. Not great for the dinning experience. The food was OK, not special, and the service was fine too. A bit slow to take drinks orders but food was quick and they were friendly. Went outside afterwards and the garden was overrun with dogs.

    Fantastic pub/restaurant. The setting by the river is picturesque. Will definitely be coming back. We are at the restaurant and all the dishes were very tasty and well presented. Service was spot on too.
