Good old fashioned proper pub. You can never go wrong here - whether its for a drink, or food (or both!), or sitting in the garden in the sunshine sipping an ice cold glass of white wine, or warming your toes by the fire supping a hearty glass of red the winter. Staff are very friendly and courteous, and the... More

A lovely little pub with modern, comfortable clean accommodation. We got a very warm welcome on arrival, had a pint, watched some World cup footie in the bar before sitting down to a very tasty , nicely cooked meal. Our waitress was charming and very efficient. A Great value little place.

We do not treat any customers as second class. Even the most cursory of glances at our reviews would indicate that we are renowned for our customer service. This lady and her companion arrived without a booking on the Saturday of Henley Royal Regatta, a day when we had over 140 covers. Although it may not have been readily apparent... More

What a great find! Little gem of a family run pub/restaurant not far from Henley. We sat outside in the lovely garden and enjoyed the barbecue in the sunshine. Food was really delicious and the staff were so friendly. What more can you ask for...........Highly recommended.

And especially as my godson and his wife turned up early. Plus the food was excellent and beautifully served. You were a complete STAR and it was... More

Not being one to overuse superlatives, let's just say that my partner and I have stayed in some of the best hotels on the planet and we've eaten at some of the best restaurants. And I'm pleased to say that The Baskerville drops straight in to that category. We were taking a couple of days away to Henley-on-Thames, specifically to... More
