I’ve been going to the Thameshead for many years. It is a reliably good pub that serves really good pub grub. It is not super fancy – it’s a pub, so expect a welcome at the bar and a roaring fire in the grate in...More

Can’t find fault with the place, amazing food & amazing service. We had a table of 30 and everyone had fabulous food and service, no complaints from anyone. Can’t recommend this pub enough, great local food, cooked perfectly.

We stopped here twice in 3days. A soon as you step into this place the smell of an open fire and warmth hits you like a classic English pub should do, such a lovely feel to the place. Very friendly staff and easy to talk...More

Daft question really, but is it best to book a table for an evening meal? Just for two people.
