What used to be called ’The Waterman’s Arms’ has been taken over as The Punter sharing the name from their sister place in Cambridge (swear word in Oxford!). It is definitely improved with a brighter cleaner interior and a much more social barstaff including Tom, the owner. Dogs are welcome, he has one himself, and knows how to store the beer, which was served well. Had a special lunch menu and was unimpressed, would rather pay a couple quid more for better ingredients, there was a lack of taste in the fish pie I ordered, with a very thick cream sauce, for some reason it reminded me of Narthern food. The prominence of wine displayed behind the bar instead of optics somewhat sums this place up - it is no longer a pub, but has a prominent bar, so not a restaurant either. A bar where woman alone can come and enjoy a glass of wine. With the Thames (interestingly a stretch where there are no punts because of the lock) just on the doorstep, a great place to chill out in the summer. If I was on a boat cruise, I’d definitely stay a night outside (inside) this pub.
