Review on The Trout at Tadpole Bridge

Idyllically situated on the south bank of the Thames, deep in the Oxfordshire countryside, the Trout started life as a coal storage house; later it was converted into private dwellings before surfacing as a pub during the nineteenth century. Angling paraphernalia and stuffed fish in glass cases in the yellow-walled bar reinforce the pub's piscine name. There's also a separate dining room, but you are welcome to eat wherever you like.

Get started with – perhaps – a terrine of chicken, foie gras and chestnut mushrooms with sautéed rhubarb or (aptly) home-smoked trout with celeriac rémoulade and toasted walnut bread. To continue, it might be a toss-up between pan-fried duck breast with vanilla mash and lime sauce or loin of pork with prune, leek and apple stuffing, but don't forget to check the board for fish specials (fillet of red mullet with mango salsa, for example).

As for desserts, expect something emphatically traditional like Bramley apple pie or lemon posset with raspberries. The serious, drinker-friendly wine list combines plenty of racy modern drinking with a few aristocratic vintages.
