The Baskerville
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Shiplake
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2008

My husband and I stopped off at this hotel for the night, as part of walking the Thames Pathway. At the end of a 24 mile walk we were utterly exhausted, and the Baskerville provided the perfect recovery spot.
The staff, atmosphere and food were all perfect. The location was ideal, both 5 minutes from a local train station and the river. The surrounding countryside is absolutely stunning.
If you fancy a weekend away, or are looking for a stop off whilst walking the Thames path, I would highly recommend this place.

Just returning from a four-nights-stay I can only and simply recommend this place for everybody looking for one of the best-kept pubs, the most outstanding pub-food at reasonable prices and a first-class b&b-accomodation.
Graham is keen on showing british cuisine at its best, the ales are well kept and the locals attending the pub are non-snobistic (mind the area ...) and very friendly. Rates are priceworthy and - at least in the room calles "Sonning" there is a power-shower that may succeed in drowning you standing up.
A bit tricky to get there especially in rush-hour-times as there are only the bridges in Henley or Sonning (single track!!) what will either cause a detour and/or some traffic jams.

Britain at its VERY best.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Oxfordshire Restaurant of the Year 2016. The Baskerville in Lower Shiplake remains a traditional village inn with a ‘proper’ bar, a delightful restaurant, 4 star accommodation, a beautiful garden and ambitions beyond its AA rosette. With Kevin Hannah and head chef Jamie Herridge at the helm, its outstanding customer service is matched only by its creative, seasonally changing menus. Fresh, ethically and locally sourced produce lie at the heart of its modern but classically based dishes which offer a memorable experience. 2015 Beautiful South Awards. Silver Award in Tourism Pub of the Year. It is a AA 4 star Inn and is similarly rated by Visit England but with a Silver Award. It is situated on the Thames Path in the tranquil, affluent village of Lower Shiplake, with well appointed en-suite rooms, the Baskerville is the perfect place to stay the night either for Dinner, business or just for a leisurely break. 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 1.5 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 150 m from the pub via the Henley branch line to 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. Shiplake is 25 miles or 30 minutes by cab or car from Heathrow Airport. ... more   less
