Good Pub Guide Recommended

Emphasis on imaginative food but a proper public bar too, interesting sporting memorabilia and a pretty garden; bedrooms

This is a first-class pub run with care and thought by a hands-on family ? there's always a good mix of customers and a genuine welcome for all. The bar has a few beams, red leather tub chairs, pale wood dining chairs and tables on oak floors or patterned carpet, plush red banquettes by the windows and a couple of log fires in brick fireplaces. Flowers and large house plants are dotted about, and the red walls are hung with a fair amount of sporting memorabilia and pictures (especially old rowing photos ? Henley is very near) as well as signed rugby shirts and photos, and maps of the Thames. Bar chairs line the light, modern counter where they keep Loddon Hoppit, Rebellion IPA, Sharps Doom Bar and Timothy Taylors Landlord on handpump, 15 wines by the glass from a thoughtfully chosen list, 40 malt whiskies and farm cider, all served by neat staff; they support WaterAid by charging 75p for a jug of iced water and at the time of writing have raised £8,000. Background music and TV. There's a separate restaurant and a small room for private parties. The pretty garden has a covered barbecue area, teak furniture under huge parasols and some rather fun statues cut from box hedging. The bedrooms are well equipped and comfortable and the breakfasts excellent.
