Lovely food but a bit expensive. They have the monopoly on Thai food though so for a special meal we’ll worth going.

This was our first visit to the Cottage Inn which proved to be a great introduction to Thai food. The staff were friendly and helpful, advising us about menu choices; when the food came, we were not disappointed! We were blessed with window seats with views of the river below, and felt very comfortable with the way that Covid guidleines were being followed. All in all, a very enjoyable evening.

Absolutely wonderful late lunch, eaten in the sunshine. From the moment we arrived they made us feel welcome, great service by all staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We had lovely takeaway during lockdown so wanted to eat in again. We had two Thai starters, prawns and squid, delicious, my husband had duck and noodles why I opted for the pork roast dinner. Huge portion, lovely potatoes, meat, veg and Yorkshire pudding with extra gravy on the side. We tried the home brewed beer and ale, also great, so took a pouch home. Can’t wait to go back

Having enjoyed a great meal there in February it was well worth a fair journey to eat there again. Wonderful and delicious food in every way. The staff have done really well to incorporate the necessary precautions for the safety and comfort of the customers, of whom there were a healthy number - clearly a popular place to eat.

Amazing food, but due to the Covid precautions we were outside in a tent made of scaffolding. It would have been fine but we were the only people in it with seating for another 10 tables or so. They did move us into the main pub when we asked after we’d had our starters. So enjoyed the main course in the nice pub atmosphere. Will go again but would want to be inside.
