Now even more expensive at £4 per pint which makes me reluctant to return but it is very friendly and good for walkers on the Thames Path. Beers on were Brakspear Bitter brewed in Witney, Brakspear Trailblazer brewed in their micro-brewery in Henley, Ringwood Boondoggle and Fortyniner. I have to deduct a point for the pricing.

Rather an old-fashioned pub with a dog-friendly bar and welcoming locals. As previously mentioned the bar is full of stuffed fish and animals, lots of humorous signs and a real live African Grey Parrot amusing everyone with its calls. The beer garden has a huge amount of tables which I imagine would be well-populated during Henley Regatta as the river is close by. Beers on last night were Brakspear Bitter, Special and Honey Bee and Ringwood Boondoggle, the first two being tried and definitely approved although the prices were above average even for the Henley area. Conversely the food prices were very reasonable with a good choice of honest pub grub although no food was being served at the time. All in all certainly worth another visit to compare at a busier time.

This pub/hotel has a really nice location in a small hamlet near the River Thames. The main bar area has many stuffed animals and birds. The barman was friendly and helpful. 3 ales were on - Brakspear Bitter & Ringwood Forty Niner & Boon Doggle. At the rear, there is a dining area and beyond that a large pub garden with dozens of tables and an adjacent field for overflow car parking and another area with plenty of chickens, cockerels and geese. Very nice pub.

Very pleasant country pub, just away from the River Thames. It has been surprisingly well extended since my last visit probably thirty years ago. We did not eat, but sat in the large beer garden enjoying the sunshine and the antics of the publican's pet turkey. I had Wychwood Brakspear bitter which was in good condition. We did not eat.

On a circular walk from Henley we stopped for lunch at the Flower Pot.
We were the first to arrive at lunchtime but the pub soon started filling up. Lots of tables, mostly set out for food. Lots of stuffed fish in cases around the walls. The log fire was burning despite it being June - totally unneccessary.
Beers were Ringwood Bold Forester and Bitter, Brakspears Bitter and Jennings Sneck Lifter. We tried the first and last of these and they were fine, although unsurprisingly a little pricey.
Food options are listed on a specials board, a standard menu board and a light bites menu, so plenty of choice. My fellow walker had the curry which he found filling and perfectly satisfactory . I went for Lamb Shank which, although cooked, was not as hot in the middle as on the outside. Reheated in a microwave? It was also covered in a thick onion gravy, and I mean thick, which rather detracted from it as well for me. Food prices were actually reasonable and what I'd expect to pay in a pub.
There's not many pubs nearby so the Flower Pot is pretty much the only option if you're in the area. It was OK, but I wouldn't go too much further than that.
