Reviewed 3 March 2013

It's all down to expectations - and as we were spending quite a lot on what looked like a "boutique style" room with a good restaurant, we were bound to be disappointed. The room probably had been fine several years ago. It was tired with a broken shower, blind and two light fittings which were not working. An ugly T.V balanced on an even uglier mini bar fridge (empty) didn't add to the ambiance. I was worried about the close proximity to the railway line, but luckily it didn't disturb us. The dining room was charming, if a little cool and drafty. Unfortunately the young inexperienced waiter got our meals completely muddled and we didn't have a good start to the evening. However, apart from the mussels, which were obviously prepacked long life type,the main courses were tasty. The inn was well positioned for the lovely walks along the Thames Path, and the owners were very friendly. If we'd paid less all these problems would have been perfectly acceptable.

A warm, friendly welcome in a cosy inn in a pretty village.
The bedroom was perfectly comfortable.
The breakfast was really good - the fruit salad was all fresh and the cooked was tasty and filling. Oh, and the coffee is pretty good which made a nice enough change from many places.
The owners were helpful and genuine.

So, overall, nothing fancy - just a good solid inn with accommodation that delivered exactly what you'd expect for the price.

Have no hesitation recommending it nor returning at some point.

Breakfast finishes at 0900 and we were there for a Sunday morning and there was no warning about that in the room (far too early, why not 1000) - however after some sideways looks cooked breakfast was produced. the bedding needs upgrading at this price, thin duvets and man made fibre pillows at £105 per night is not good. but we were made very welcome and breakfast when a chef appeared was good enough despite plastic wrapped Golden Shred marmalade - all a bit portion controlled.

Made to feel very welcome in this beautiful village location. It was nice even in torrential rain. A little noise from the railway didn't detract from the overall experience. Food was great and all staff friendly and helpful when we were trying to sort out next stop on our route. Happy to recommend.

Stuck for something to do & see, we stopped off here for a quick drink & ended up staying for lunch. We couldn't find fault with anything. The service was quick, attentive & pleasant. There were several places to eat throughout & the restaurant itself is large, clean, bright & airy; it’s nicely sectioned for privacy & comfort.
We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food & presentation which also arrived very quickly. The waitress, owner & chef paid good attention to detail & asked several times if everything was OK. The food was reasonably priced.
It is a lovely Inn to eat, drink or stay in (we can’t comment on the accommodation). It has a large car park & plenty of tables out side to enjoy the sun & scenery.

Went for a meal to celebrate our son's 18th birthday. Got a warm and hearty welcome from the landlord. The pub area was lovely, clean and with a big open fireplace, with real fire blazing, particularly welcome on a freezing cold Thursday in December! The dining area was modern and well-laid out. The food was delicious. We all had something different and there were no complaints at all, even from a fussy, picky 16 year old lad who had spicy duck noodles. The service was spot-on, not too intrusive and not too remote. Great family night out and wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Our room at the Perch & Pike was beautiful - everything was perfectly clean and the bathroom was lovely.

The restaurant was very busy both nights we stayed, and the food was excellent; really innovative and tasty!

We walked part of the Thames path and some other trails on our stay - the hotel is perfectly situated for walking holidays, and there's a lovely beer garden for a pint in the sun when you return in the evening.

We were made to feel very welcome by our hosts, and we will definitely be back! I would thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: The room with the glass wall between the bathroom and bedroom is lovely!
