I had heard about this little pub-restaurant with quite positive comments. On entering for lunch I really liked the decor and the feel of the whole place. Unfortunately things did not follow as hoped. The menu was unbelievably limited as to main courses. Despite there only being two tables occupied in the restaurant and two more outside on the terrace... More

Just popped in for lunch to do a reccy after seeing the place in Grazia magazine. Parking onsite, pretty garden to front of pub. Great bakery with lovely home made breads. Had a cheese plate for lunch with the most delicious cheese- Epoise from Bicester..oh so good!

I stayed here while on a business trip to Newbury, I've tried several other hotels in the area and this one is by far the best. Fantastic breakfast and cheerful staff. The rooms have been recently renovated, comfy beds and even a heated floor in the bathroom. Free wifi and lovely decor. There aren't many rooms so I imagine it... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in February while walking with friends in the stunning nearby countryside. From the minute you walk through the door you feel the entire staff want your stay to be as perfect as possible. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms were well presented with an exceptional bathroom (we loved the underfloor heating). The food... More

Stayed here for one night after going to Newbury Races for the day. Has been recently made over on a significant scale. Tasteful and high quality finish in rooms and pub itself. Our room (number 2) was not massive but big enough with a large comfortable bed. Bathroom with a good shower and underfloor heating. Nice towels etc. The rooms... More

From the warm welcome in a truly magnificent refurbished hotel I cannot speak highly enough of the rooms which are fitted to 5 star standard. The Staff are amongst the finest you will find and could not be more accommodating with a friendly and professional manner. I would definitely recommend this hotel whether on business or pleasure. The quality is... More

Make no bones about it the Crown and Garter is remote down winding country lanes through the Berkshire countryside but worth the journey when you arrive, the welcome was very friendly as were all the staff throughout my stay. The rooms are outside the main pub building in a U shaped courtyard and obviously have been very recently refurbished to... More

We started our walk here in the snow, walking up to Coombe Gibbet on the Wayfarers walk, so when we returned two and a half hours later we were ready for a good meal and warm fire. We were not disappointed on either count. We were especially glad that well behaved dogs were welcomed in the bar area, so nice... More

So hard to believe a place like this exists only 40 minutes away from the stresses & demands of London. From choosing your own room, to the attentive service you feel very welcomed at the home away from home. The rooms are beautiful, but the big surprise is how comfortable the beds are! I recommend only the strong willed stay... More
