Excellent hotel, food great, hotel staff brilliant, fabulous location for touring. Stayed for a week on a Secret Escapes deal, the room was perfect for two adults all the comforts of home including a good sized shower room and quiet at night for a restful sleep. Henley on Thames only a ten minute drive from the hotel is a must.

Drinks in the garden was very pleasant but dinner in the evening was excellent and breakfast the following day (full english) was one of the best i have ever eaten - the poached... More

We stayed on a Secret Escapes package which was fantastic value. The outside of the pub looks unassuming but the inside of the pub has been decorated in a French country style and has a relaxed and stylish feel. There is a reasonable choice of food which is freshly cooked and tasty and the pub appears to be popular with... More

I have been to this restaurant many times because of its location. This time I was not impressed. I had the Churchill burger and frankly it was very average for £14! It was small, over cooked and tasteless. I usually expect more from this place but it was busy and they obviously need to keep standards up at these times... More

We enjoyed our Secret Escapes two night brea at The Crown and overall we were pleased with our room with its lovely modern ensuite bathroom with large walk-in shower. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and the lovely white sheets were of very good quality although we noticed a small tear in the top sheet as well as a... More

This was the second time we had stayed at the Crown Inn and that speaks volumes as we rarely go back to the same place twice. We arrived quite late and the pub was very busy with large parties in and we had not booked dinner. They still found time to show us to our room and managed to get... More

Relaxing country pub. Nice food. Lovely gardens outside the bedrooms which are positioned behind the car park. Comfortable bed and brilliant bathroom. There are lots of places to visit nearby. We thought Sonning which was very pretty.
