The landlord was attentive to our family party and quickly laid another place for an additional guest with speed and good humour. He took care of our needs throughout the meal, with quiet swift service. The food I would describe as "decent pub grub" as a previous reviewer put it. The Sunday lunch menu offered two good roasts, and standards... More

All the meals at the Mousetrap have been excellent during our stays there in the past 10 years .. But their "Lambs Liver & Bacon" is truly wonderful .. Many thanks

Booked for Saturday which was essential as it was quite busy. Service was very good and local beer excellent, food was ok but nothing memorable. Decent size portions so didn't need dessert. In all a decent pub experience, but go elsewhere if you want a gastro treat.

A very cosy, historic place to have a quiet drink or two. The bartenders were friendly and conversational, there was a good selection of beers both on tap and in the fridge. Prices were much cheaper than the London fare we're used to. There is a toasty fire and board games to help pass the time. Menu had a range... More

Quaint hotel near the centre of the old town in Burton-on -the -water. Small but manageable rooms but access up the stairwell is awkward. We did not have dinner there but the English breakfast was great, there were porcelain mice statues all around the dining and bar area which was cute. When we arrived the place was closed due to...

Whilst staying at the Lansdowne guest house we spent every night at the Mousetrap. We ate there on 2 of the 3 nights. Very good food, large portions and excellently cooked and served. Lovely country pub atmosphere.

We pre booked on the night of the Christmas light switch on, which was just as well as it did get busy. This place is basically a pub stripped out with lots of tables in its place. It lacks something, no music playing, miserable waitress, carpet in the ladies toilet, I'm not sure but something missing. Food was fine, nothing... More
