Come here for...
● Cool and quirky boudoirs designed for flirty weekends. ● Pimms on the terrace and picnics by the river. ● Indulgent bathrooms. ● Food to write home about.
There's a large outdoor terrace perfect for al fresco drinks and lunches, and an oak panelled bar with armchairs, plenty of buzz and crackling fires in winter.
Good to know
Don’t expect fuss and formality – it’s a place for laidback living.
15 rooms and suites.
Rooms come with bold decor (touches of '60s retro), painted wood floors, REN bath gels, bathrobes for lolling around in, Nespresso machines and flatscreen TVs. Feature bathrooms (some open to the bedroom) have high pressure monsoon showers, wet room areas or oversize stone baths.
Luxury suites are the best. Room 4 (the unofficial bridal suite) is a winner with its huge carved bed, cowhide rug and pink daybed. Foil wallpapered Room 7 comes with a huge Japanese style bathtub for two and leather sleigh bed. Room 12 (a Superior double) is another favourite, sporting flamboyant Caribbean-style pink and green wallpaper. Room 10 (a Small double) is cute and faces the village green.
Eat & Drink
You’re in for some culinary treats at the Miller’s award-winning, light and contemporary restaurant. Menus follow the maxim that great food isn’t necessarily complicated, featuring some inventive takes on British classics.
Try the char grilled tuna nicoise with crispy noodles and chilli jam, a 28 day aged Berkshire rib-eye steak or pan-fried turbot with pea and mint salsa. Round off with summer berry Eton mess or maybe white chocolate and coconut fondant. Lighter bites and some good local ales are served in the fireside bar, complete with comfy club chairs.
Served until 10:00 (10:30 at weekends).
See & Do
See how the other half live with a trip to one of the many stately homes in the area such as Hughenden Manor (once home to Benjamin Disraeli), Basildon Park, and Grey’s Court. Garden lovers may prefer the Herb Farm in Sonning Common, or a wander through the quads and college greens of scholarly Oxford.
There’s plenty of walking to be had along the Thames towpath and in the Chiltern Hills. Hire a Thames motor cruiser a boat for the day when you get tired of footslogging and putter down to Henley on Thames, with its pubs and antique shops.
Spa treatments are available in your room – ask for details.
Watch master crafts people at work at the Thames Valley festival, held at Mapledurham House near Reading.
Get out your gladrags for the Henley Regatta – all Pimms, picnics and rowing. Or wait for the Henley Jazz festival the following week.
