Friendly country inn with character rooms, a good choice of drinks, enjoyable food and seats in garden; bedrooms

With Highclere Castle so nearby, this 17th-c inn does get its fair share of Downton Abbey fans at peak times. The main door opens into a heavy-beamed character bar with leather tub chairs and a leather sofa in front of a two-way fireplace housing a chiminea stove, and stools and high chairs against the counter (church candles in chunky candlesticks to either side). Ringwood Boondoggle and West Berkshire Good Old Boy on handpump and good wines by the glass, served by friendly, helpful staff. Leading off to the left is a room with antlers and stuffed squirrels on the mantelpiece above an inglenook fireplace, books piled on shelves, a pale button-back leather window seat, a mix of wooden and painted dining chairs around nice old tables on red and black tiles or carpet and, at one end, a tartan and leather wall banquette; background music and board games. Dining rooms to the left of the bar, divided by hefty timbers, have high-backed tartan seating creating booths and more wooden or painted chairs around a mix of tables on flagstones or sisal carpet. Doors lead to the garden where there's an outside bar and a variety of elegant metal and teak seats and tables either on gravel or raised decking. Well equipped and comfortable bedrooms (two on the ground floor) are named after trees; breakfasts are good.
