This is a good place to stay if you need overnight accommodation with close access to Heathrow airport, which is less than an hour away. It is easily accessible from the motorway, less so if you arrive on the A-34 where you're plunged into a bewildering maze of lanes. But the Olde Red Lion is far more than just a... More

We stayed here for one night on way home from a bad sailing on the Santander to Portsmouth Ferry. The owner was charming and helpful, the room (Lochalsh) was very clean and very comfortable. We had a lovely meal unfortunetly I could not do justice to it as I was still feeling a bit sick. We slept for about 12... More

We read the review in "Just off the Motorway" and called in for Sunday lunch. Helpful landlord helped us park our oversized campervan. Good food and service reasonably priced. Don't expect haute cuisine, just good gastro-pub food. The highlight for me was the gent's toilet. The landlord has framed all the bad trip advisor reviews for you to read above... More

We stayed for one night following a trip to Newbury races. The pub is located in a lovely setting and the accommodation is separate from the main pub and so the rooms are quiet. There are tables available in the garden and plenty of parking. The staff were very friendly and we ate a nice evening meal from a wide... More

Only stayed one night, but wish it had been more, what a lovely pub! The B & B rooms have been converted very sympathetically, and with great attention to detail. There are flowers everywhere in and around the pub - beautiful. Great breakfast over at the pub, brilliant service and lovely coffee. Don't hesitate to book there, though not cheap,... More

Typical pub grub over priced. My husband had a lamb dish and it was ok, but big price. I'm vegetarian and not a fussy one, I had the vegetarian burger, burger was the size of a tea plate no too big for the bun, full of mushy beans and veg, why do some chefs presume we only eat that??? It... More

Really enjoyable visit to the pub whilst on the way to visit friends. Didn't book in. We got a nice welcome and good beer followed by a very tasty meal cooked and presented well. Would recommend this pub with a nice atmosphere

In a rural location and very conveniently placed for the M4 just 40 minutes by car away from Heathrow. Our first floor room with its own external entrance was in a small building immediately alongside the pub. The bedroom was furnished to a high standard and the generously proportioned bathroom had a large shower. The rooms were well heated once... More
