The Bloated Mallard - Hampton Hill
I found this pub not very good or accommodating or welcoming. The staff were friendly, but there was not much room to move around. The interior looked like it had not been finished and the furniture brought from a car boot. Different bits here and there, not matching very well.I did visit on a music night and it was busy. The music was good, they had a man on his guitar and singing.
The pub does food and gave me the impression that it wanted to be more of a restaurant than a public house. The prices were on the steep side.
When i visited the pub was not wheelchair friendly as there were steps in with no ramps. There was no disabled toilet, when i mentioned this to the staff they didn’t seem to know anything about people with disabilities and their needs.
I do not recommend this pub for a visit.
The Royal Oak - Hampton
I found this pub to be a proper homely pub. The customers and staff made me very welcome. They cater for all needs, sport, music and food or just a quite relaxing evening.
The pub does food with its well know Sunday roast. The prices were very reasonable.
There is a music jam session on a Monday evening where anyone is welcome. They have live bands on at the weekend catering for all kinds of music lovers.
The staff were very welcoming to new faces, so you will always feel at home.
the pub was wheelchair friendly and accommodating for people with disabilities. I am not sure if there is a disabled toilet, as I didn’t see one but there may have been one by the enterance to the garden.
i highly recommend this pub for a visit if you are ever near it.
