Good Pub Guide Recommended

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

We always get warmly enthusiastic reports on all aspects of this family-run inn. As well as a gently civilised atmosphere, the bar has a few beams, leather tub chairs and dining chairs around pine 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 pale walls are hung with a fair amount of signed rugby shirts and rowing memorabilia, oars, pictures and river maps (Henley is a 35-minute walk away via the Thames Path or a four-minute train journey); TV. Bar chairs line the light, modern counter where they keep Loddon Hoppit and a guest plus Rebellion IPA and Smuggler on handpump, 13 wines by the glass from a thoughtfully chosen list, 50 malt whiskies and farm cider, all served by friendly, enthusiastic staff. They support WaterAid by charging 75p for a jug of iced water and at the time of writing have raised £10,500. The separate restaurant plays background music when it's quiet. A pretty garden has a covered barbecue area, teak furniture and picnic-sets under parasols. Bedrooms are well equipped and comfortable and the breakfasts are excellent. Wheelchair access using a ramp; no disabled loos.
