Booked this venue for a birthday treat. Arrived late afternoon wet weather and tired, pleasantly surprised at location only minutes outside Reading yet leafy lanes. Shown to rooms which where not part of the main Building. Felt slightly worried in case a bit Butlinsey! Pleasantly surprised at the high standard of decor. Bathroom lovely with a huge shower. Only downside... More

The Crown is a pub with rooms and has no pretensions to be labelled 5 star. it does however offer very comfortable chalet style rooms in a small block at the rear of the hotel with comfortable beds, a very good shower and all the necessary amenities. the menu is interesting and has quite a strong South African touch with...

We came up for my birthday last week and booked a night here. They say first impressions count... We came out the taxi and in to the reception. And we were pretty much checked in without a smile. We weren't told anything about the hotel, breakfast or given any information. We were shown to our room, which was nice then... More

Ive been to this Pub/restaurant probably 10 times in past 18 months and sadly its decline has been measurable culminating in my latest (and I fear last) trip. Menu is a somewhat interesting mix of styles, Thai, South African, American, English but the menu hasn't changed in a long long time and is now somewhat boring to choose from. On... More

Not been here for Sunday lunch before and with a party of 6 it's fair to say we were all very happy with the carvery. The meats were brilliant having a choice of pink or medium/well beef, lamb, pork and turkey and you could choose 3 if you wanted to! The plates were piled high with meat and then help... More

The Crown is up there as one of our favourite places to stay. The food, accommodation and staff are all great and the location is ideal for exploring the Thames valley. The BB & evening meal deal is excellent value and although the restaurant was very busy (Saturday night) the food and service was spot on. All the staff are... More

We booked in here for two nights on a B&B with evening meal deal, which was great value for money. Overall a good jumping off point for Oxford and surrounding area, which is what we wanted it for. The Crown Inn has a lovely feel and atmosphere, the staff are welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was clean, bright and modern,... More

Review of the food, not the accommodation. I had the Churchill Burger, but couldn't taste the smoked bacon, the piece of cheese was tiny and the burger rather dry. Chips were OK, bowl of warm tomatoe sauce pleasant. Overall not impressive. My wife's half chicken Piri piri was huge but the Piri Piri sauce was a thick layer over the... More
