For 5 days of house-hunting we were pleasantly surprised to discover the New Inn at Knowl Hill, in terms of value it was second to none in the area the stay was inclusive of breakfast (with a nice selection) and included free parking and free wifi. The staff are absolutely brilliant, every single one of them was very friendly and attentive.

The food was a little pricey considering the proximity to some very good country pubs which do give you more for the money and the road outside could be a little noisy for light sleepers especially if you need to leave the windows open, which we did due to the hot weather. All in all though I would have no problem recommending the New Inn, we did not try enough of the food to offer a comprehensive review but the staff make this place a great find just on the doorstep of Reading.

I'd been tempted by the weekend BBQ a couple of times when driving past but decided to just do it. Lovely Saturday evening and the BBQ was on but a bit too pricey for me: £7.50 for a cheeseburger and salad. We went for the steak sandwich with caramelised onions and fries. Really excellent meal in a really great setting in the back garden, plus the dog was allowed so that scores great points with me!

Definitely head back there again!

Forget any reviews you read before this year. New management and very nice. Brilliant staff. Nice comfortable room. Lovely food. Top marks throughout and would recommend this place. 100%. If you didn't want to go out for the day it wouldn't matter. We were very pleased and impressed. Thank you for a great stay

I have been here twice and hope to return many times in the future.

There is a large menu and a page of specials. The food gives every appearance of being freshly cooked and the portions are huge. I do not how anybody can cope with a pudding. The vegetables are ordered separately and are much more interesting than the ubiquitous bowl of microwaved beans, cauliflower, and broccoli. Here the veg is, for the most part, properly cooked. The current trend towards un(der)-cooked vegetables is not to my taste. Squeaky green beans are inedible. Even at the New Inn the beans could have given another few minutes but they were better cooked than anywhere else I have tried in the last few years.

The wine list is not long but covers most tastes and is not expensive. There is a separate vegetarian menu offering considerably more choice than most places. There is also a tapas menu with further vegetarian options.

Service is attentive but not intrusive.

A lovely experience. I hope to become a regular.
