Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The wonderful setting alone – in a gorgeous village hidden on the banks of the Thames – makes this a desirable place to stay’, but visitors to the 17th-century inn discover much more to like. The pub-with-rooms, owned by Sebastian and Lana Snow, has been refurbished in modern rustic style: arrive to a ‘warm, informal’ greeting and find out why locals (and their dogs) visit the beamed, flagstoned pub. Past the bar area, with its exposed-brick walls, mismatched tables and chairs, and blackboard menus of ‘good wines and interesting craft beers’, Matt Read’s ‘delicious cooking’ in the restaurant might include kiln-smoked local trout, fennel, cucumber, blood orange, pomegranate; chicken Kiev, thyme and duck-fat roasties. Summer meals are taken under large parasols in the garden. Upstairs, ‘shabby-chic’ bedrooms each have their own character. (Some might have pub noise, too – sensitive sleepers should discuss rooms before booking.) ‘Our room overlooking the front garden had a large, comfortable bed with good linen. In the bathroom: a freestanding double-ended bath.’ Breakfast on Kelmscott sausages and crispy bacon, then head out on a riverside stroll, minutes away.
