Not staying in the hotel. We had an incredible meal in a Marstons near Bristol, so thought this would be the same. Just came to eat with family and really was not a good experience. I live in the town, but still felt like an alien walking in the bar, as all heads turned!!! I understand they're in the middle... More

The Bacon Arms is an ideal base for a visit to Newbury Races but the accommodation is in serious need of a complete refurbishment. As a pub I have no complaints, as a restaurant it needs a lick of paint and new furniture but the rooms really do let the place down. They look tired and not very clean, poor... More

My mother and I stayed at The Bacon while celebrating my daughter finishing Uni, We found this a little gem of a hotel, the staff very friendly and welcoming and the room clean and comfortable. Breakfast (inc in the price) was wonderful and included endless coffee, much needed the morning after. This is a quaint curio of a place with... More

I went into the Bacon Arms with my wife and daughter for lunch. We order three Chicken Paninis with fries, they were supposed to be hot but they came out luke warm, very disappointing. I arrived at 12:57 and left at 13:49. The reason I know this is because I was snapped entering and existing the carpark by the NPR... More

I have been here many times over 30 years and seen it change hands so I was interested in its latest takeover. Friendly staff, good ale and reasonably priced wine. The menu was "average" like a wetherspoon deal. But, oh dear, the seats were glossy with wear and uncomfortable and I had to use my own wetwipe as the table... More

After a lonnggg day in Southampton were booked in to stay here on way back up North to break up the journey. Initial thoughts were that the rooms (two) were very basic but were so tired thought it would be fine. Karaoke and disco went on until after midnight at full blast. May as well have been in our room.... More

Seriously outdated in need of refurb. Staff welcoming. Room was disgusting & filthy. No room between bathroom & bed. Housekeeping seriously needs addressing .Such a shame as perfect location for town centre.

Last minute booking for an easy night stay in Newbury, leaving very early the next morning. Staff polite on arrival, shown to our room outside the back door right next to the smoking area (I am a non-smoker) and the way out to the car park. Heating in the room wouldn't turn on, bed creaked when you moved, toilet wouldn't... More

I had to attend an interview in Newbury and my partner booked the Bacon Arms online. Unknown to me, he had booked it without reading any reviews therefore before we set off I decided to research the B&B. I was horrified at some of the reviews that I read but we had already booked and couldn't cancel. I was panicking... More

Read some mixed reviews, but with little availability in Newbury at short notice, we booked the Bacon Arms. We arrived very early, parked in a large rear car park and mindful of the "scamera" comments, went in just to register our car, intending to return after 2 p.m. to book in. The "scamera" comments seem exaggerated, there are ample signs... More
