A perfect riverside pub, nearly by the river

We had a great lunch here for seven. Food was good and the staff attentive. Very good puddings, even if we were bursting at the seams by then. We came by boat which was not that easy, so the only improvement I would make would be to move the whole pub next to the river, which is unlikely to... read more

Another fantastic visit to The Baskerville! Everything was superb from start to finish. The staff are all friendly, smiley and helpful. The food was delicious, I had the pear and blue cheese salad followed by crispy pork belly..all perfect! Already looking for to our next visit! Hopefully sooner rather than later. Keep up the great work!

I've eaten here on a few occasions and the food is always very good. The Baskerville has a very traditional British pub feel and a welcome break from the chain pubs which are taking over our towns and cities. There is a well stocked menu with lots of variety, the slow roast pork belly is particularly good as are the... More

We came across this pub by chance on a walk from Henley and decided to try out the Sunday roast. We both had roast pork, the crackling was lovely and crispy and the roast was genuinely good. I do have a question for the chef, the pork is orchard raised so I wondered why the need to hickory smoke it?... More

We visited this place after a stroll through the woods at Shiplake, it was a midweek evening. We had a warm welcome from the bar staff who poured our well earned drinks. We then pondered on a well balance choice of food from the menu . Food was really good as was the service. It's the top end for pub... More

Cycling from Henley-on-Thames beside the river, we came across the Baskerville in Shiplake where we had a lovely lunch in the garden. The pulled pork sandwich was amazing! We look forward to returning one evening for a meal in the restaurant which looked lovely.

Stopped here for a light lunch while walking the Thames Path to Henley. We ate from the bar snack specials board and the food was very tasty. Service was good and the garden was a nice place to eat and relax before continuing our walk.

Went for Sunday lunch with family. 2 had roast beef, the rest of us had other options. Everyone enjoyed their starters, mains and desserts and the service was good. The lemon sole with samphire and crispy cockles was particularly good. The bar snack options looked great as well. Worth a visit.

We really enjoy our meals here, particularly those we take outside. The garden is lovely and a good spot for children to have fun. We've always enjoyed the food, and indoors, it has an area which feels like a proper local pub.
