Good Hotel Guide Review

The setting is ‘wonderful’, the welcome ‘informal and warm’. In a ‘beguiling’ spot close to the River Thames, Guide inspectors in 2016 were won over by this ‘popular’ village pub-with-rooms. Chef/patron Sebastian Snow owns the refurbished 17th-century pub with his wife, Lana; ‘chatty, charming’ Tileri Charles-Jones is manager. Hobnob with locals (and their dogs) in the garden or the convivial, stone-walled bar, then tuck in to Matthew Read’s ‘delicious’ dinners. ‘We enjoyed a flavourful lamb and kidney pie in perfect shortcrust; nicely presented pan-fried sea trout; a fine rhubarb brûlée.’ Afterwards, lay your head in a ‘shabby chic’ bedroom upstairs. ‘Ours, with a large, comfortable bed and good linens, overlooked the front garden. The room was cool in January, but a portable radiator, swiftly proffered, made it much cosier.’ Pub noise is inescapable; ask for one of the quietest rooms, or ‘join in, and enjoy it!’ Breakfast on ‘nice croissants and locally sourced preserves’; an ‘excellent’ cooked option with ‘crispy’ bacon and sausages from the village farm. Kelmscott Manor, with its ‘unrivalled collection of William Morris’s work and possessions’, is down the lane.
