I stay at this hotel a couple of times per month on business. It has great food and good prices with the accommodation at reasonable pricing. The staff are great especially Tina who always gives you a warm welcome and remembers your name. Nick and Susan (owners) are warm and welcoming too. You must stay if in the area

Six of us stayed for a day at Newbury Races. Everyone in the Inn was extremely welcoming and helpful. We had asked for a snooker table for the evening and the 115 year old table was perfectly positioned for our rooms !! The food in the evening was great and the cooked breakfast in the morning all one could wish... More

Was taken here for an evening meal on a Sunday. Nice looking pub with rooms (apparently) and with large outside seating / garden area. Nice welcome from the Landlady, efficient and polite staff. As we sat perusing the menu we were told that there was a limited supply of the roast beef meals. Nothing wrong with that except we took... More

Thank you for your review of your visit. We always serve roast meals on Sundays, for which we take bookings. They are also popular with customers who arrive without booking and we are always happy to accommodate them too until the roast meats run out. Therefore its not possible to predict how many roast lunches we will sell. Fresh vegetables... More

Upon arrival I was seen to quickly & shown to my room (room 10) which was a large room with a double & a single bed with all the facilities needed - big comfy bed, flat screen TV Altho was a little small plus tea & coffee making facilities. The bathroom was useable. It took a bit of fiddling to... More

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.
