Wallingford is an old market town, set in the Upper Thames Valley a short distance from the main city of Oxford. Situated on the longest lock-free stretch of the River Thames, Shillingford Bridge Hotel is an excellent location for boating, fishing and walking as well as exploring all of the local attractions that Oxfordshire has to offer. Blenheim Palace and Bicester Village are just a couple of the reasons to visit this beautiful county.

The River View Restaurant and Bar offers outstanding views across the grounds and river Thames, both offer a social hub for meeting with friends for lunch, afternoon tea or a glass of wine. Their seasonal menu and tempting wine list will be sure to match any taste for a delicious lunch, dinner or light snack. - See more at: http://www.sjhotels.co.uk

    Great food. The lamb had been cut from rhe fat and there was a generous portion. The lemon mousse was the lightest I have ever tasted. Amazimg. The service was quite slow as the restaurant was staffed by youngsters: but the view over the river and the quite atmosphere were very relaxing and the wait to be served went by hardly noticed. "

    Yesterday we had Sunday lunch at the Shillingford Bridge Hotel and the meals were very nice. By comparison with the main courses, the dessert portions were rather stingy, but tasted good. But that's where the good news ends, even if the food is the main attraction.

    The restaurant was nothing like that shown on the Shillingford Bridge Hotel website, which showed a lovely smart restaurant with white table cloths. Our experience was a bare sanded-down wooden table (with patches of the old sticky varnish remaining) and cheap paper napkins. While we didn't mind that, it wasn't what we were led to expect.

    Above our heads were cobwebs and on the floor crumbs and other bits and pieces, which made us wonder what the kitchen was like. Staff seemed in short supply and we had to wait ages for our desserts to arrive, to the point that one of us went to ask if we had been forgotten.

    Then it was time to pay. I was asked to go to the bar, where our bill was ready. I wasn't given any breakdown to check, just told the amount to pay, which seemed rather high, so I queried it. I asked where the breakdown was, which seemed to fluster the man, who then frantically shuffled pieces of paper, but still no breakdown for me to check. I found a pen and paper and started working out the bill myself. After we had agreed the figure and I had paid, I was handed the receipt and the long-awaited breakdown, which the man had hand-written after I paid. I have little doubt that the initial figure was no mistake and relied on most people's limited mental arithmetic ability.

    The Shillingford Bridge Hotel is in a great location and there aren't many other restaurants in the area. If you do pay it a visit, close your eyes to the lack of cleanliness, but make sure you open them wide to check your bill VERY carefully. "
