Good Hotel Guide Review
Popular with the racing fraternity and couples in search of a weekend escape, this old sheep drover’s inn is on the village outskirts, with wide views over the Berkshire Downs. Its modern rural revamp from owner Jack Greenall has given the cosy, traditional snug a rich colour scheme. The old settle and deep armchair by an open fire are ideal to sink into with a good book – and there are plenty to borrow. Fresh, comfortable bedrooms have well-chosen fabrics, wallpaper and artwork, along with a Roberts radio, Bramley toiletries, plush robes. Chef Andy Watts’s elevated pub food (locally sourced where possible) is served in the large, light-filled restaurant. Breakfast is an occasion worth rising for.
