SquareMeal Review of The Trout at Tadpole Bridge

Silver Award

As you might expect, this riverside country pub majors in fish, as well as a populist selection of English draught ales. Perch outside on benches overlooking the Thames, or settle in one of the bright dining rooms for some accomplished cooking. The kitchen delivers twists on classics with aplomb, such as delicately cooked English lamb chops paired with hummus, and a feta cheese-topped beetroot moussaka: an outstanding mix of sharp, delicate and earthy flavours. On the monthly changing menu, the range of fish might include tuna loin, hake, cured trout, or battered haddock; our grilled plaice fillet was served atop a bed of risotto-like barley with fresh peas. Slightly above-average pricing is wholly justified and service is friendly and relaxed. Desserts focus on light and fruity options, or there’s a selection of local cheeses and a strong choice of dessert wines to pair them with. With riverside paths to follow nearby, you could easily make a day of it at this quality pub-with-rooms.
