Our local gastropub, always good. Atmosphere and service excellent. Efficient, happy staff. The mussels today were superb, full bodied and full of flavour, accompanied by the best chips, as they always are here, and a slice of toasted bread. We used to have the calamares always, but I prefer those of the previous supplier, which included the tentacle bits. They... More

Food was of a good standard for the price point, however my biggest area of comment was the service. My husband and I were eating with our 3 year old son and baby. On arrival we were pushed into possibly ordering an alcoholic drink - neither of us wanted one and were frowned at by the male waiter for this.... More

Met for Sunday lunch. Excellent attentive staff, very quick service, warm atmosphere. Will be eating here again. Only comments for improvement would be that coffee cups are too small, making even the decaf coffee quite strong and a few more veg included with a main meal, rather than as extras, would be appreciated. I had lamb shank which was stupendous,... More

We were keen to try Spring Inn and were not disappointed. Food and service both excellent. Alex the Manager and his young Australian waitresses, Lilly and McKenzie were all very friendly, helpful and provided excellent service. Because of walking difficulties I had asked for a ground floor table near the door and it was waiting for us when we arrived.... More

I was really looking forward to having dinner at The Spring Inn after seeing their amazing menu, and the food didn't disappoint. It was delicious. We were a group of 8 and we preordered the food as we were a larger group. When we arrived to the restaurant we were informed that they were out off sea bass. So the... More

You will easily find The Spring Inn on the Bath Road just a few minutes drive from Junction 12 of the M4 and close to Reading, Theale and Pangbourne. We are far enough from all that hustle & bustle and you'll know you're in Royal Berkshire countryside!

Now re-opened with a new management team and having benefited from interior decoration and outside landscaping, The Spring Inn is at the heart of the Sulhamstead community and overlooks the Sulhamstead and Ufton Cricket Club. Managed by the same team as highly successful gastropub The George at Wraysbury, there are plenty of culinary delights and a wide range of local, regional and international wines, beers and ales for residents of Sulhamstead and the surrounding area to enjoy.

The Spring Inn serves a weekly Sunday roast as well as lunch and supper daily. With a wealth of culinary experience our Chefs have succeeded in sourcing the finest ingredients with preference to local suppliers whilst creating a unique menu.

Our team of passionate chefs prepare food that when presented to our visitors delivers returns of delight that makes it evident they are all, without exception, passionate, creative and caring about their cooking and indeed, presentation.

With plenty of garden space including a terrace area and a large car park now is the time we can enjoy our British summer. On rainy days the interior is inviting to ensure everyone has plenty of room to enjoy their meal or relax around the bar. The Spring Inn is fully stocked with local, regional and international beers and ales as well as old and new world wines, a wide range of spirits, liqueurs as well as top shelf whiskeys ports & pudding wines.

Morning coffee, afternoon tea and a selection of soft drinks are available throughout the day. With a private dining area we are able to accommodate group bookings for birthdays, conferences, meetings, weddings and whatever cause celebration you'd like us to host for you!

The New Team at The Spring Inn look forward with pleasure to welcoming you for a light lunch, evening supper, Sunday roast or just a relaxing drink with friends, family and colleagues.
