Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The welcome is excellent’ at this revitalised 18th-century free house, on a quiet road running through a ‘peaceful Downland village full of birdsong’ – just ask the locals coming in for tea or a high-stakes round at the ‘jolly quiz night’. ‘Village residents Martyn Reed and Catriona Galbraith have given this old inn a new lease of life,’ say Guide inspectors in 2017. ‘A local hub’, it has a fine selection of real ales to match chef Phil Currie’s ‘accomplished cooking’; Lidia Dhorne, the manager, ‘couldn’t be more helpful’. Bedrooms are up ‘steep stairs’ (help is offered with luggage). Some are beamed, some have a sloping wood floor, all have a Roberts radio, natural toiletries and home-baked biscuits. ‘Our room, Uffington, was smallish, but adequate for a couple of nights. The comfortable bed had blankets and sheets as we’d requested; the smart, well-lit bathroom had thick towels, and a monsoon shower above the bath.’ Eat in the main bar or one of the dining areas leading off it; a blackboard menu lists daily specials: ‘delicious local asparagus with a poached egg and crunchy bits’, perhaps, and a ‘perfect lemon posset’. The Berkshire Downs are to the south.

'This was a wonderful place to stay. Delicious, imaginative dinner and breakfast; comfortable room with sitting area and bathroom with roll top bath and luxury toiletries. Tea and coffee making facilities with fresh milk and homemade biscuits. Great staff who made us feel very welcome, and a lovely beer garden ' - Amanda Tarrant - June, 2017
