Waterside inn with plenty of outside seats, nicely furnished bar and dining rooms and good choice of food and drinks; stylish bedrooms
The good pub guide review
This handsome early 19th-c inn sits on a pretty islet between the River Kennet and the Kennet & Avon Canal. Arrive early if you want to sit outside; although the riverside terrace and mature garden have lots of seats and tables under large white parasols, they fill up fast. Inside, the simply furnished bar has a counter decorated in old pennies, traditional furniture on bare boards and Ramsbury Gold and a changing local guest on handpump, local cider and 17 wines by the glass (including fizz) served by helpful, friendly staff. There are various dining areas: the main one is decorated in classic country style with green panelled walls, decorative tiled flooring and a pretty fireplace, while the Potting Shed has garden tools, little watering cans and books on a dresser and large windows overlooking the garden. The eight well appointed riverside bedrooms are stylish and contemporary; all are dog-friendly and five come with their own private terrace.
