Good Pub Guide Recommended

Welcoming inn with imaginative food, a good drinks choice and charming staff; seats outside; lovely bedrooms

A country pub with fine views, this is both stylish and civilised. The interconnecting bars and dining rooms are smartly furnished and one end of the L-shaped bar is light and airy with tall green leather chairs lining a high shelf, a couple of unusual, equally high tables with garden planter bases, a contemporary chandelier and stools lining the shabby-chic counter. Here they keep Bombardier and West Berkshire Good Old Boy on handpump, 12 good wines by the glass and a dozen gins and a dozen malt whiskies. The other end of this bar is cosier, with leather armchairs and sofas facing one another across a low table in front of a woodburning stove; background music and TV. The first room leading off has beams and timbering, tartan-upholstered stall seating and leather banquettes, and framed race tickets on the walls. Dining rooms, linked by timbering and steps, are decorated with old fishing reels, a large boar's head, photos and prints, with an eclectic mix of attractive chairs and tables on bare floorboards or carpet; an end room is just right for a private party. In the garden are elegant metal or teak tables and chairs on gravel and grass; there's also a fountain and an outside bar. Bedrooms are comfortable and well equipped with private courtyards; five even have their own hot tub.
