Poor choice of starter. I had 3 small chicken wings and given a knife and fork to eat them. They were previously cooked and reheated. Main course I choose steak and it was just ok. Steak was not rested after cooking and when served my...plate was swimming in blood. Chips were cold and there was no grilled tomato although it said it was included. Mushroom sauce which I paid extra for was very salty and didn’t really taste of anything. We ordered a side dish of onion rings and these were fantastic. Sticky toffee pudding was a microwave brought in pud and was served with icecream. Very expensive (£100) for two. Staff were friendly and pleasant but sadly we would not return.More

Very Dirty! I put a negative review on here some time ago and as we were in the area I thought I’d pop in and see if things had improved. In a positive note there was soap in the men’s toilet this visit but the...toilets themselves were very dirty and cobwebs and dead flies on the windows in the bar. I still can’t bring myself to order food!More

The bar and restaurant area inside looked fabulous but as the weather was very good we decided to stay outside. We chose a table on the higher deck with nice chairs and enjoyed the view. Before leaving I visited the ladies toilets and after initially...being impressed was appalled on further inspection. The sheer filth below the hand dryer was unbelievable 😳 such lack of cleaning was indescribable. Check the photos for further clarification.More

Stunning views of the river and equally lovely to sit inside. The young lady behind the bar was so nice and friendly. Can’t wait to come back again!

We love visiting the Frog pub for lunch, it has beautiful views of the Avon the food is always excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. On Thursday the 10th of July I came for lunch with my mother and Aunt we had a lovely...time. Unfortunately my Aunt who is 91 years old collapsed on the way out and her health quickly deteriorated and she lost consciousness. I would like to thank the staff and in particular Nathan one of the customers for their support , during the very stressful time. Nathan phoned the emergency services and spoke to the operator while we were supporting my Aunt. His help and kindness while we waited for the ambulance was so much appreciated, we can not thank you enough. The staff phoned me the day after to check on her progress. What a credit to the business you all are.More

I came to the Frog last night with a group of friends for a meal and drinks. We sat in the restaurant section. The service was quick and efficient. Our meals were fantastic, very good value for money, well presented and very tasty. I live...in Bidford so have visited the Frog a lot however my friends had never been. They were all really impressed by the location, staff, (Frankie was lovely), food and atmosphere and they all want to come here more often. Thank you to the team at the Frog for a lovely night.More

We stopped at Bidford on Avon whilst on a canal boat holiday and came across The Frog when we were ready to eat. We had an amazing meal, really good size portions of freshly cooked food. Service was great, friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

As a group of four adults, we visited The Frog, we had eaten here before a few years ago, and thought that we would give it another visit. First impressions were good, it was not busy and we were promptly shown to our reserved table....We were given menus and were told that they would take our drinks and food order at the table as they weren’t busy, ordinarily we would have to order at the bar. We were the only people in the restaurant and after a considerable wait they came and took our drink order, we then, after another wait, had to ask for someone to take our food order. The food can only be described as ‘heated up’ food, frozen chips and vegetables, and did not look appetising whatsoever, certainly not worth the money, and this was complimented by the slow service, I hate to think what the waiting time would be if the restaurant was busy! The restaurant looks good at first glance, the furnishings are very nice, but looking around, the room needs a good clean, cobwebs and dust around the walls and ceilings, and would benefit from a repaint,and we could hardly see the lovely view of the river through the dirty windows. Such a shame that this lovely position on the banks of the Avon has left us with the feeling that we shall not return anytime soon.More
