Nice inn/ pub with character and pleasent staff. Enjoyed both evening dinner and breakfast. Pleasent garden. Car park available. Noise from pub disturbing in room. Likewise, the occassional dog barking. Odd to experience this in a eating/ drinking establishment.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and everything was really good. We had the Shiplake Lock room which had a queen and a single bed. The room was huge by European standards. The shower was a bit tight but plenty of hot water and pressure. Breakfast was excellent with a nice choice, the full English, kippers and smoked...

Fabulous! We had a wedding in the area and found it by Googling hotels in and around Henley. A very pretty pub with just 4 rooms. The room was fine, very comfortable and clean. Such lovely welcoming friendly staff. The manager, Kevin, had been very helpful prior to our arrival as I "lost" our confirmation. Only had 1 night stay...

I was passing through on business and picked this place at random and was very surprised! Room was large, clean and comfortable and staff very friendly. The steak i had in the restaurant downstairs was incredible! Felt like i was in a steakhouse! Minor downside, probably only for business users, breakfast doesnt start untill 730, which was a bit late...

I wasn't sure about staying at a pub fro B&B, but The Baskerville was first class and not too noisy. Very good welcome and shown to a smart first floor room with all the usual facilities plus a good shower. Beds were comfortable and lovely duvets. Our breakfast was excellent with a wide choice, which was no surprise as our...

Came here for a night to attend the Henley festival, was greeted with a warm welcome and the room was nice and big. Shower was also powerful and clean! Didn't spend much time here due to the traffic getting into Henley. Breakfast was good next morning.

Mid week business stay, Hidden gem but not too far away from Henley, Twyford and Reading. I stay in this area frequently and this is by far the friendliest and most comfortable place in the area. Shame they only have a few rooms and seem to be always fully booked or I'd stay more often. Nice pub / restaurant with...

Handy for Henley (close to Shiplake train station), comfy bed, warm welcome, beer garden, mostly good food. Two good dinners, one good breakfast and one very disappointing breakfast - staff and food. Saturday breakfast was great, as were the helpful staff who served us. On Sunday I think we had the 'B' team. Dishevelled and seemingly unaware that we could...

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
