About the hotel
With well appointed, ensuite rooms featuring luxury pocket sprung single and king size beds, the Baskerville is the perfect place to stay the night either for business or just for a leisurely break. The bar with its sporting memoribilia offers four cask ales and over 40 malt whiskies is the place to meet the locals and engage in conversation or simply to relax with the newspaper. It is cool in the summer and cosy in the winter with roaring log fires.
The restaurant with an AA Dinner Award and an enjoyEngland Breakfast Award offers a modern British cuisine with continental and eastern influences. Menus change frequently to reflect seasonality and availability of produce which is locally,organically and sustainably sourced. All dishes are homemade, prepared from basic ingredients and cooked to order. Not only are they well balanced in their flavours but they are delight on the eye without being pretentious. Truly a testament to the creative flair and imagination of Head Chef, Marc Price and his brigade. We offer a wine list of over 50 bins with 12 by the glass to complement your meal. The small town of Henley-on-Thames with its many interesting shops and home to the Henley Royal Regatta and the Henley Festival is only 2 miles away. Enjoy a boat trip up the Thames or visit the River and Rowing Museum. Try a night at the Kenton theatre, the fourth oldest in England. Within the village why not stroll along to Shiplake lock and watch the river cruisers pass through. A little further up the hill is the 13th century parish church of St Mary's where Alfred Lord Tennyson was married. Further afield are the towns of Reading 7 miles, Windsor, with its castle, and nearby Legoland. 15 miles, and the university town of Oxford, 22 miles. All of these can be reached by train from Shiplake station via Twyford on First Great Western trains. Feeling a little more adventurous? Paddington station is less than an hour away with all that London can offer.

Fantastic Food and great staff
We really enjoyed our stay here.
After travelling from Belgium staff were keen for us to settle in at our own pace rather than rushing us into dinner. They were also more than accommodating with regards to a parcel we needed taking in.
Mid week stop-over
Charming pub in a quiet country village area clearly very popular with the locals.
Room was spotless and comfortable. I was stopping over for work so sat in the bar slaving over my laptop but wish I'd had the time to go for a wander, apparently the river walk was just down the road. The bar was quite full and lively for a Wednesday night so imagine it's pretty full-on at the weekend. The drinks and the food menu pricing clearly reflects the pub's popularity just over £4 for a pint of IPA and cheapest main is £17 which challenged my company expenses policy but the meal was excellent. Breakfast started too late (7.30) for me but looked good as I grabbed a banana on my way out.
