I stay here regularly in the cottages, they are very cute and great for longer term stays as it at feels more like home than just a room. The bathrooms are a good size and are always lovely and clean.

On of the most delightful and expensive meals of our lives. It was darkest December with the lawn outside the dining room flooded and washed by the current. Inside we were carried along through an exquisite dinner by feelings of enjoyment mixed with an undertow of apprehension. Why were the staff hovering at all times? Could we relax and talk?... More

We have just come back from two great nights. Had an excellent meal with our family Everything was absolutely top notch. For personal reasons we had to make changes to our reservations and could only confirm at the last minute - Laurence on the front desk was exceptionally helpful - a great ambassador for the hotel.

Ive known the Hotel most of my life as I was born just up the road but moved to Norfolk 5 years ago. We booked for a concert at The Mill at Sonning and took advantage of discount offer for theatre goers. As the River Thames rose each day I was relieved to know both Hotel and mill remained open....

My wife and I stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon 47 years ago. It really has not changed much in all those years. This is both compliment and criticism. We were convinced that we stayed in the same room and, as far as we could remember, it looked almost exactly the same. It did look tired and... More

We have dined here many times before and always enjoyed the experience. We took some work colleagues as our guests last week and, having built it up in their minds, we were not disappointed. This is what the best quality British dining is all about. An absolutely beautiful location, an interior that beckons you to stay as long as possible,... More

My husband and I stayed here for the night to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We enjoyed an excellent meal in the hotel restaurant in the evening before heading to our accommodation. It was a very sweet cottage with a very impressive bathroom! We had a delicious breakfast brought to us in the morning. The perfect end to a wonderful... More

We almost didn’t come to the French Horn, as we’d spied the prices on the internet. I eat out a lot, through work and play, and also cook a fair amount. So when a restaurant feels it can charge over £20 for starters, and an average of £25-£40 for a main course, then in my mind it has to be... More

My wife and I along with our matured children have been constant diners at The French Horn for 40 years. This is a "Classic" in the true meaning of the word. An unbeatable rural riverside location on the Thames coupled with the best fresh ingredients elevate The FH to the top of the league table. Forget Michelin stars here, The... More
