We booked a stay for one night with secret escapes, we loved it really nice Gastro pub that has some quirky overnight rooms in a separate annex across the patio. The rooms are very private each with a little wooden table and 2 chairs outside, that would be lovely in the summer. The rooms are decorated really nice in a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a secret escapes booking and thought it was really good value for money. Food was delicious, the service was excellent and liked the location. Would definitely recommend it and would stay here again.

Here now on our 2nd night of a secret escapes break and happy now to give it 5 stars because unless the place burns down overnight I can't think why I should mark it any lower. The hotel is a bit out of the way off the A4 maidenhead to reading road but well worth the extra miles if you... More

Like many recent reviews we stayed here for 2 nights on a Secret Escapes break. £95 for DBB per night. The Crown is a delightful old country inn, sensitively restored. It is part of a chain, which detracts slightly from its character. We arrived early, but it was no trouble for the staff to find out how soon our room... More

My wife and I spent a three night break here, in this quirky, rambling gem.The decor is quirky,my wife described it as "shabby chic", although the chair in our room was more shabby than chic, and, oh dear, those china parrot bedside lamps!. The hotel and rooms (in a separate converted stable block) were spotlessly clean. When we arrived, we... More

Annual sunday lunch outing for group of friends from near and far, so well positioned with good parking, no one elected to stay over, so only meal and bar experience to share. Service was pleasant, helpful but not skillfull or accomplished considering the number of covers over two lunch sittings. Food ok for the price but nothing special, and carvery... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here on a Friday night as part of a secret escapes deal which involved accommodation, a three-course dinner and breakfast for £95. On the whole, the service was fantastic, the inn is charming and the location is delightful. DINNER The whole a la carte menu was available on the deal (though a small supplement... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here with a Secret Escapes deal and we were more than impressed with the room, service and food. Great value for money. It was only a 10 minute drive from Reading but it felt like you were in the middle of the country, and despite the village being very small it didn't matter to us... More
