About the hotel
The Crown & Horns is a beautifully renovated and refurbished country inn nestled in the heart of West Berkshire's racing countryside with Newbury racecourse only 11 miles away. Our 11 individually designed en-suite rooms (from £55 per room per night) are clustered around a kitchen courtyard, and with roaring log fires, oak beams, lots of real ales and simple, fresh, locally sourced food, The Crown & Horns is the perfect stop over for business and leisure travellers. Didcot town centre is 8 miles, Newbury 10 miles and Oxford 23 miles from the Crown & Horns Inn.
Free on-site parking is available and the A34/M4 motorway junction is a 3 minute drive away. We are open all day every day from 12 noon, and serve food 12-3(ish) and 6-10(ish), although we always have sandwiches, sharing platter and pizzas available if you get peckish through the afternoon! So whether it's Mum's birthday, your wedding anniversary or you just fancy a couple of pints with friends, you'll be well looked after. Each of our 11 en-suite rooms is individually designed providing the style, charm and comfort you'd expect at prices you wouldn't. Every bedroom has all the things you really need and none of the things you don't - a piping hot power shower (some with baths), professional hairdryer, sumptuous linen, flat screen TV, free WIFI and mugs of tea and coffee. The village of East Ilsley, which can be traced back to the Domesday Book, is situated in the North Wessex Downs, in Berkshire, England in an area of outstanding natural beauty just off The Ridgeway. The village was historically noted for its great Sheep Fairs, and more recently for its horse-racing connections.

Great Place to Stay, but beware hidden breakfast charges
Top marks to the lady on duty taking orders and working behind the bar - so helpful and cheerful - credit to the pub.
The only thing stopping me giving top marks for everything is the breakfast - no mention of breakfast on website but we were asked if we wanted breakfast on arrival so we said yes. When going down to breakfast we were immediately asked if we wanted tea/coffee, which we agreed to and helped ourselves to cereal. Only when we sat down did we see the menu which highlighted that everything you have is charged for, ie tea/coffee £2.10/£2.40, cereals/orange juice £2.95 - approx. prices as cannot remember exactly what they were, on top of charge for Full English Breakfast. The room rate was extremely reasonable, as was the dinner menu, but not the cost of breakfast!
Gastro pub with great accommodation
We stay here a few times a year and it never fails to impress us.
The rooms are really comfortable and individually designed. The wine selection is good and the food always excellent along with the service. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.
