Harden's survey result
“Wonderful out-of-the-way” gastropub “down the end of a winding lane” and with “an amazing indoors with a dining room plastered with intriguing old photos”, which still “sets standards others struggle to meet” (listen up pop pickers, it’s owned by ex-Sweet and John Otway rock guitarist Paul Clerehugh, who set up here in 1989). “Never had a bad meal, course or service: it always delivers with taste, charm and pizzazz”. “A handwritten daily changing menu is always a joy to hold – other pretenders take note”.
Paul Clerehugh “has really found the formula to please his customers” at this “tucked out-of-the-way” gastropub “down the narrow country lanes” of the Chiltern Hills, between Reading and Henley, where “there is always a friendly smile and something delicious on the menu”. “I’ve been coming here roughly once a fortnight over 15 years, and it never fails to please!”
“Tucked away in the Chiltern Hills between Reading and Henley”, Paul Clerehugh’s “wonderful, out-of-the-way pub/restaurant” is “still a favourite after many years”. The food is “gorgeous”, staff are “very friendly and cheerful” and the oak-beamed interior is “just lovely” (there’s also “the option of eating in the secret garden area” at the back). Top Tip – “great music nights”.
“Tucked out-of-the-way (thankfully otherwise it would be mobbed)” – this “unbeatable” oak-beamed rural favourite is, for fans, “the benchmark for casual relaxed dining”, with “a romantic ambience in both rooms” and “always reliable” cooking.
