I was too full after the breakfast!!!
lovely location, quaint, old y worldly, comfy bed, car park, bar, restaurant, staff great, very clean excellent value for money, breakfast very good, will come back
Heating system wasnt good, two nights were very cold.
the staff was lovely. We had dinner and breakfast and both were delicious. Our meals were relaxed and unrushed despite the restaurant being busy. And all the ladies got a rose for Valentine's Day which was a nice touch.
Nothing that I can remember.
room very small (room 3) had an early night the diners downstairs might as well been in our room we could hear every word bathroom very small
Though too much, the quality of the food was excellent. The breakfast was just ok.
The room was disappointing. The bathroom had mold and the room decor looked tired and untidy.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Rooms were a little small but location and friendliness more than made up for it.
Everything was great
Excellent location in lovely village. Great pub atmosphere.
Rooms comfortable but in need of update and some tlc certainly not boutique.

Location; staff; breakfast; atmosphere
The staff did everything possible to be helpful despite the challenges that they faced.They deserve a medal.
The key to our room didn't work but was eventually opened by our house key! The cleanliness of the room was poor but the cleanliness of the shower was horrendous.
Lovely old pub with exposed beams and low ceilings full of character. Staff were very helpful and attentive. The breakfast was great and service impeccable.
very good breakfast. friendly guy at reception.
Noise early in the morning because they were moving barrels. They took a lot of money of my account as they 'made a mistake' charging me for nights I didn't stay. It took ages to get my money back, I had to make about 5 phone calls chasing my own money. If I hadn't noticed it, I would never have gotten my money back. Unfriendly manager.
Best pub stay we have found. Cosy pub really inviting lovely decor. Great food - dinner and breakfast all freshly cooked. Lovely village location near river walks. Would also work for affordable accommodation for London visit. Loved it.
Excellent staff,very good food,good atmosphere.
Room decor looking tired,bathroom door not shutting properly.
The food and the atmosphere is good. The location is good for Reading. The staff were friendly and helpful
The room was clean but shabby with curtains hanging off the rails, lights not working, door knobs falling off the wardrobe and a very grim moldy shower mat - the room was over priced. The breakfast however was very good with a good menu, loads of choice and freshly cooked.
Excellent breakfast Good shower
A brilliant night. I booked at three hours notice having found I was working in the area the next day. I had a great time relaxing in one of the friendliest bars I have ever been in and wondered upstairs at the end for a great nights sleep.
Friendly, welcoming, very good value room and food? Great place to eat and drink.
Low ceiling. Being 6ft 4in, I hit my head many times on the delightful, feature beams!!
The location is stunning, set along the Thames in a beautiful village.Our stay was in October and we thought it was gorgeous and peaceful. We will return in the Summer to see the Wisteria in full bloom, which will add again to the beauty of this lovely pub and it's location. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Dinner was fantastic, the room was spacious and very comfortable, and the bed was to die for ! The full English was perfect for setting us on our way after a lovely stay. We will definitely return. :-)
Quiet situation on lovely location in sleepy village. Attention to detail was good as was food and drinks.
