We have just stayed here for one night in room one (which is upstairs) and had a lovely visit. The accommodation is a separate building to the restaurant so there is no noise, and our room was charming. The building is old, and the decor matches it perfectly. There weren't many plug sockets, the toilet took a while to refil,... More

Was taken away for a birthday outing -evening meal, comfy bed and a very good 'full monty' breakfast. Only slight downside was the indoor BBQ was out of action ( something to do with the extractor) -anyway, all in all worth doing and would happily go again.

The Beetle & Wedge is situated in a lovely, quiet spot by the Thames, with plenty of seating outside the restaurant in the sun or shade, depending on your preference. The accommodation is in a house near the 17th century boathouse, and our room was on the ground floor. The room was adequate, and though the bed wasn’t particularly comfortable,... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor. We really appreciate your comments & I have noted the cobwebs, we do dust on a daily basis but in the summer months the spiders to tend to be busier & with our position on the river there seem to be more of the dreaded spiders around.

Great little place to stay. Beautiful location, great service, good rooms and excellent restaurant. Plenty of things to do nearby - visited the Swan at Streatley for an indulgent cream tea. Pangbourne and the surrounding area is very interesting to just mooch around.

We stayed in bedroom 2 which was very nice and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We booked our evening meal in... More

They are so welcoming and are always willing to do special things for us ....from late snacks when we are delayed flying into... More

Beautiful riverside restaurant with rooms. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant, the fish was nicely presented and well cooked. The steak was lovely and a great portion. Comfortable bedroom with coffee teas and biscuits plus a large comfortable bed. Breakfast was excellent and lots of fresh fruit too. Excellent value and will stay again

We only booked for one night but could have stayed much longer. The setting of the accommodation was truly idyllic. We arrived with friends and were greeted by Francis who is a credit to this establishment. He was friendly and very welcoming and even carried our luggage to our rooms. This is very rare in this day and age. Our... More
