Visited The Swan for birthday drinks and dinner with the family. We all chose various options from the menu (from scampi to burgers to curry) but we were all very happy with our food. Prices are fair for the portion sizes and quality of the food. Service was good and staff friendly. We were actually pleasantly surprised and will probably...

Visited here for my Hubbies birthday. Stayed in one of the lovely little rooms that are part of a old building next door to main pub. We did not eat in the pub as very very noisy and busy so got a take away but the overall appearance was ok. Room quaint, toilet seat moved when sat on, doors did...

It was nice to find a restaurant who,s chef could cook a steak properly the food was excellent as was the service. I don't know what the young lad that served us gets paid but it should be more he is a great asset to the business. We will certainly be back.

We used this place as a base for our visit to highclere castle. The room was small but beautifully clean and well equipped. We ate in the pub for our evening meal and was very satisfied with quality quantity and price. The staff need a special mention they were very friendly and nothing too much trouble.

4 star based on cost of room £65. Room was a little cosy, but clean and everything works. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was spotless with plenty of hot water. Dinner was typical pub quality but inexpensive, the beer was also well kept all in all just fine. I'd stay here again

The staff I met were friendly and the service in the restaurant and bar was good. The inn is close to the Thatcham railway station and conveniently located for people travelling by train. The breakfast was OK but that is as far as I would go by way of praise. The 6 or so rooms are located in an old...

Rooms unique and individual with all mod cons albeit on the small size. Friendly staff and location ideal for the station if you need to commute and very close to canal for lovely walk to Newbury. Room not dirty but clean freaks may find the poor detail cleaning below par which is a shame. Bath room in Room 1 no...
