Friendly, well furnished and comfortable but what a shame so many small details let them down. No Marmalade available for breakfast: any choice of jam as long as you wanted strawberry: a shower that spilled water all over the bathroom floor: a large puddle in the car park blocking entrance access: cleaning staff openly served coffee ahead of waiting guest....

We just happened across this little gem as we cycled from Bristol to Reading. Fantastic location, food, service and beautifully done. The bakery is wonderful too. A tad expensive, but worth it! Great outdoor area to sit and relax and the interior is comfortable and relaxing. The rooms are well sized and the beds are very welcoming. Both dinner and... More

Dear Langley-Hockings, Thank you for taking time to review the Crown and Garter! We are very proud of becoming a regular spot for cyclists to recover their energies. The bakery is the ideal spot for that but also the relaxed garden and the comfy pub! I hope we see you again soon! Best regards, Tiago More

We stayed overnight on Saturday as we were visting nearby Highclere House on the Sunday. After a stressful journey (stuck in queues on the m25 etc.), the Crown & Garter was a haven of tranquillity and superb hospitality. We enjoyed a few of the local ales in the pretty garden reading the newspaper in the sunshine before having dinner in... More

We stayed here as we were attending a wedding nearby. The pub and rooms are all decorated beautifully, the courtyard garden stunning and the staff polite and attentive. The food was delicious - I just wish we had stayed for longer! Highly recommended.

A friend and I stayed here as part of a weekend break to Highclere Castle and our first impression was WOW. Fabulous relaxing location, beautiful ultra clean stylish room with super comfy beds and luxurious modern bathroom. From the moment we arrived staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect and it was. Faultless 5 star... More

Beautiful room, fantastic food and staff who want to please. Bakery on site with wonderful bread. Cafe for late breakfast and pastries during the day, we will return. Three excellent real ales so every box ticked for me hence the five star rating.

I went to the Crown and Garter with a group of female friends to celebrate my forthcoming wedding. I found the staff quietly attentive to our needs with a relaxed yet organised air. The food was delicious, both in the restaurant and bakery. The stay couldn't have gone better. Lesley

I Stayed at the Crown and garter for the weekend with six friends. It was a hen weekend, but being women of a certain age we were quite tame! We couldn't fault it. Started with coffee and croissants in the lovely bakery. Then went for a delightful walk around Inkpen and the neighbouring villages. Arriving back at The Crown and... More

The menu may be short, but everything on it is fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff are well-trained and extremely helpful in both advising on the menu and also wines. Lovely decor and a great vibe. The bakery sells fabulous bread too! It's hardly surprising that the Rose & Garter is very popular so booking is essential.

This lovely country pub aims high. Staff are friendly, helpful and great touches such as proper water carafes, interesting wine, vintage-style tea-cups and a clean dog bowl in the immaculate garden. It feels like a special place and one that would be equally great for a family gathering or romantic lunch. The attached bakery makes a perfect place for a... More
