Just spent a night at this delightful "pub with rooms" in Cookham. We were going to a family evening wedding and so unfortunately did not manage to sample the food apart from breakfast which was spot on. Creamy scrambled eggs just how I like and salty crispy bacon. Fresh orange juice and excellent service. Some might find the menu choice limited but it means what they do, they do well.
The rooms were quirky with plenty of books to read and interesting art; the beds, were unusually high but very comfortable. Our room quaintly called "Mrs Baggett" had the sweetest little "cubby" room off the shower room - perfect for a child travelling with his parents. They would love it! Sadly my son now too tall for the bed......and you do need to watch your head as you enter the room - even me!
The landing tea and coffee facilities and the decanters of whisky are generous touches; as is the sloe gin in the room. You really feel they want you to feel welcome....and you do!
My only niggle - hence a 4 and not a 5 - is that this room looks across the roof and you get a lot of noise from what I believe are the kitchen extractors. But of course they're're not on at night and so we slept well until breakfast service the next day.
But all in all, a really lovely experience and I would very much like to go back.
