Feb 27-28/15 I don't often leave reviews but I so enjoyed my stay at the Furze Bush Inn that wanted others to know. I am an American/Californian and big Downton Abbey fan and made a point of driving down from London to get a glimpse of Highclere Castle. I booked the Furze Bush Inn via the internet without knowing much... More

Me and my partner stay at the furze bush from time to time and we find it almost a home from home, when reading the review above I found I had to comment. The staff are all friendly and welcoming, the food is always good and so is the real ale. Although I would say the restaurant can be a... More

We booked in advance for lunch at 12pm. Considering they knew exactly what food to serve and the time our table was booked, 40 minutes to serve lunch was frankly laughable. To add insult too this the food was just about warm when it arrived. The temperature of the restaurant was freezing. Despite asking for the heating to be turned... More

We are disappointed that you feel that we were responsible for ruining your boxing day. We agree 40 minutes is too long to wait for a pre-ordered meal. While the first of your party of 19 arrived before 12 noon which was the time booked for your table the last family only arrived at 12.25pm to a round of applause... More

Good accommodation, good food and friendly staff in a peaceful country setting. Sitting outside having dinner and listening to the cooing pigeons and distant church bells was most memorable. Just called in without a booking and managed to get a good room (last one I think). Both dinner and breakfast were excellent meals.

We popped in today, it's a lovely looking place - slate floored, character property - obviously child friendly (play area in the back) also dog friendly (dogs not allowed in the front garden but were allowed in the pub). It has a formal restaurant and a less formal large bar dining area - we opted for ploughman's (we were warned... More

Stayed for 2 days for my sisters birthday. Coming from Canada the staff was unbelievably accommodating to my timetable of arrival. The food was fantastic as well as affordable and the grounds were excellent for a nice walk or to enjoy a pint in the fresh air. Comfortable and clean rooms, great locals and staff that are out of this... More

I have stayed here a few times in the past to visit a friend and each time I have been, there has been a deterioration in standards.
