Now describing itself as a 'Riverbar & Grill', this ex Southams half timbered building dating from the 15th century can be reached via a footbridge from the Quarry Park. The low oak beamed interior was refurbished in 2013 and provides a bright and modern look, and from certain parts you can also have a river view. The facilities also include the Boatshed, which is a private function room. Note that prices are at the top end of the local range. Any references to accommodation are just a pointer to the sister venue, the Lion & Pheasant Hotel which is about a mile downstream following the pleasant riverside path (closer to half a mile if the more direct route through the town is taken). A Good Beer Guide regular in the 1980s/1990s, these days most tables are laid out for food showing a change in emphasis. Even so, there is still a choice of interesting, well-kept ales, albeit a tad on the expensive side.
