We're so proud to have been awarded silver in the Pub Restaurant category at the Free From Eating Out Awards 2016 which took place in late November at the ExCel in London. This is a massive achievement for our little pub. Read more here.
In November 2015 we were presented with an award by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) for being in the top ten vegan-friendly pubs in the UK - further recognition of our continuing efforts to cater for people with dietary needs.
We were also awarded South Oxfordshire CAMRA Winter Pub of the Season 2011/2012 and are listed in the 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 CAMRA Good Beer Guides. We are also Cask Marque accredited for the excellent quality of our ales for the fourth year running.
Nick and Hazel have run this pub since 2010, celebrating their sixth anniversary in December.
Exciting and original events happen throughout the year, both inside and out, from live music and our monthly classic car and bike meets in the garden (April to October) to charity weekends, real ale festivals, monthly acoustic nights, monthly jazz, stand-up comedy, games nights, magic circle nights, astronomy nights, charity fundraisers plus 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 ancient Berry Brook running around two sides. As it passes under the Spring Lane bridge, water from the spring joins it, wending its way to the Thames at Shiplake. Find out more about the pub and its history here. There is an abundance of wildlife and great walks.
Unusually, the pub itself is on the first floor with an excellent covered balcony overlooking the garden. It is important to note that access to the pub itself is via an outside staircase.
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 and was featured in the Christmas 2015 edition of the Sunday Times for a magnificent circular walk. A new circular walk has been published by Nick and Hazel (choose 2 miles, 3 miles or 8 miles!). Runners, cyclists, bikers and dogs are also very welcome!
