Fuller's ales served at the Flowing Spring
The Flowing Spring in Playhatch, Oxfordshire, nestles on the edge of the Chilterns on the Henley Road just minutes from Reading, Caversham, Sonning, Shiplake and Henley-on-Thames. It is a friendly, cosy, traditional country pub that serves fresh, home-made food, including a wide range of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options.
The Flowing Spring is in The Good Beer Guide 2013
It was awarded South Oxfordshire CAMRA Winter Pub of the Season 2011/2012 and is listed in the 2013, 2014 and 2015 CAMRA Good Beer Guides. We are also Cask Marque accredited for the excellent quality of our ales for the third year running. Nick and Hazel have run this pub since 2010 and, in April 2014, signed a further three-year extension to their contract with Fuller's. They celebrated their four year anniversary in December.

Exciting and original events happen throughout the year, both inside and out, from live music in the garden to charity weekends, real ale festivals, monthly acoustic nights, live music indoors and out, magic nights, stand-up comedy nights, the annual ferret show, games nights, astronomy nights, charity fundraisers and many private and corporate events.


The 18th century pub is on a slant with almost a foot difference from one end of the bar to the other! At the rear is a huge garden with the Berry Brook running around two sides. As it passes under the Spring Lane bridge, water from the spring joins it, wending its way to Shiplake. Find out more about the pub and its history here. There is an abundance of wildlife.

Unusually, the pub itself is on the first floor with an excellent covered balcony overlooking the garden. 

There is plenty of car parking space, a toilet on car park level for disabled customers (with baby changing facilities) and Wi-Fi.  It is popular with walkers (walks between Sonning and Shiplake through the Bluebell Woods are particularly popular), runners and cyclists. Children, bikers and dogs are also very welcome! Click here for a map of local walks.

AWARD WINNERS!
In December 2011 the Flowing Spring was awarded 'Winter Pub of the Season' by South Oxfordshire CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) in recognition of Nick and Hazel's efforts in transforming the pub. In a press release CAMRA said
: "The Flowing Spring went through a rather low period - until when Nick and Hazel took over the business. Since then they have turned the whole thing around giving a great example of how to create a successful community pub. In recognition of their efforts at the end of their first year the SOX Branch is presenting them with the Winter Pub of the Season Award."
