Lovely setting and friendly staff, the food is not unpleasant but neither is it spectacular. Par for the course in terms of Oxford gastro pubs.

The Trout Inn is an endearing 17th century pub that provides a stylish yet comfortable setting in which to escape the demands that come hand in hand with everyday life. Situated on the idyllic banks of the River Thames, The Trout Inn offers a moment of tranquillity during a busy day, especially if the sun is shining. With a lovely side terrace that looks onto the river, our garden space also has patio heaters that are ideal for keeping you warm, cosy and content on cold days or chilly summer evenings by the river. Extensive seating and a charming bridge joining the terrace to a private garden also add to the pub’s aesthetic outdoor appeal. And make sure you keep your eyes peeled for Krug the peacock roaming the grounds! Our delicious menus of seasonal dishes feature a wide range of light bites, classic dishes, sharing platters and children’s meals that have been designed to meet all of your requirements.
