10/10 for the food
The rooms were poorly furnished and in need of a lick of paint. The bathroom was very small with only a shower and could have done with a good scrub. However, the food in the evening and the breakfast were both excellent and so was the service.

Authentic English Inn with exceptional service
This is a lovely, authentic English Inn. Watch out for the low ceilings downstairs, and some quirky features in the rooms that give it its character. Really good food, both evening time and for breakfast. Service is excellent, friendly and personal, and in my case, truly tailored to the customer's needs.... That's not easy to find these days.

Ye Aulde Pub
This is the original Ye Aulde English Pub. Tucked away in the quaint village of Sonning. SatNav struggles to spot the pub so set it for the Church. Very low beams and all walls and floors a wonky so watch out after a few of those excellent real ales that are on offer. Great English food and excellent breakfast.
