Civilised old inn with beamed and panelled rooms, imaginative food and seats in pretty garden; bedrooms

As the West Berkshire brewery is actually in the village, the Good Old Boy, Maggs Mild and Mr Chubbs on handpump are on tip top form; the 12 wines by the glass are well chosen. Many customers are here for the pleasing food, though you're more than welcome to drop in for just a drink. The charming bar rooms have beams and panelling, an appealing mix of wooden dining chairs around interesting tables, some half-panelled wall seating, rugs on quarry tiles or wooden floorboards, plenty of prints on brick, cream or red walls, lovely flower arrangements and four log fires. Under the trellising in the walled back garden are wicker armchairs and tables and there are picnic-sets under parasols at the front; boules. This is a comfortable place to stay and the light, attractive bedrooms overlook the garden or village square; breakfasts are good. The pub is only ten minutes from Newbury Racecourse and gets pretty busy on race days.

Really great place to visit, right in the heart of a beautiful village this had it all, they have a fantastic garden and welcoming atmosphere, the interior is warming and comfortable, the service is always second to none... even the toilets have a particular attention to detail that makes you feel at home such as luxury soaps and creams, small individual hand cloths and fresh flowers... The food is lovely and impressive, they always seem to have a variety of locally sources meat and seasonal vegetable, its also great to see dishes made with a wider variety of meat such as venison and game... We have been so impressed with the attention to detail and quality of food that we have already booked for an evening with friends in the near future!
