There is a cozy bar area adjacent to the restaurant for pre dinner drinks and the dining area is well laid out with exposed beams - the pub dates back several hundred years - and plenty of areas for large groups and small cozy tables.

Have stayed here a few times when I need to be at the science park in Harwell with work. Reliably good rooms, great dinners and breakfasts and at the right price. This is a go-to work stay venue. Happy to recommend.

The 2 downside were no vegetarian main course option the dinner menu and not enough staff in the morning to serve the breakfast properly. The hotel is outside of the town so for us we had to drive to the town to get dinner,...

Met up with friends and stayed overnight. Had a wonderful meal in the restaurant. Excellent steaks cooked to perfection. The meal was served at a relaxed pace and not rushed but staff were attentive when needed. Breakfast was also good. One to revisit.
