A small, comfortable hotel/pub. convenient parking, slight noise from trains. Good choice of breakfast foods. Reasonably priced. Room quite small, shower room, no bath. Rooms are very clean, they were trialling a new in room coffee machine which also made tea.

A lovely country pub in the middle of nowhere - just it, the railway station and a bunch of science labs. Friendly service, felt as though I was a regular visitor! Fantastic breakfast, compliments sent to the chef by more than my table! Very popular pub, therefore quite noisy, also railway noise, which I didn't mind, but some might. The... More

I received excellent and friendly service both upon my arrival in the evening and at breakfast time. .I got great value for money. The room was cosy and had a brilliant coffee machine that made a great cup of coffee- so much better than those awful sachets of instant coffee! Another great feature about this inn is that you can... More

This was a return visit based on location and excellent value for money last time. Pleased to say things haven't changed. Room rate was spot on, beer was well kept and the food was good value. The odd train does pass by but happy to return to this pub

I was attending an event at the nearby Science Centre. The room was clean and comfortable. The trains, well you know what you are getting when you book to be honest and they pass through very quickly. I used to live backing on a railway line so they were not a problem to me. The owners and staff were very... More

We received a very unfriendly welcome by the owner she looked at my booking form and gave me a lairy look as if the price was wrong or something. The room was fine with a nice bathroom only problem was sleeping with loud trains hurtling past the window. We had an evening meal there and the food was poor the... More

Stayed for a period of 2 weeks last summer and was primarily disappointed by the cold and unfriendly service, with the staff/owners sometimes being on the verge of rudeness. When booking the place, I was aware of its location and hence I knew I was signing up for train noise during nights and therefore that does not add to my... More

I saw this pub/hotel on the net when I was in London on business on Wednesday and thought it a good idea to stay as I was going to Kenilworth the next day. I wasn't disappointed. I arrived fairly late, and the kitchen was closed but the landlady made me some excellent sandwiches. There was an excellent choices of ales... More

Went there on a group outing and both my wife and I ordered the lamb shank and apple pie to follow. The place was dead for a Saturday night, we were the only customers and it all felt a bit soulless. The food arrived on cold plates swimming in greasy watery gravy. The shank was the smallest I've ever seen... More

Great location right on the train station and short walk to Culham science centre. Very clean, bright and modern room. Decor etc not fully modern but very good for the price bracket. Good breakfast in the morning. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Downsides would be some noise from the trains (as expected when you're at the station!),... More
