I booked the Kingfisher online, as part of a hike along the Thames Path; I found it easily, it's on the side of the main road that passes through Shillingford. Because it backs on to a busy road, it doesn't look very attractive; the entrance nowadays is around to the side and is less than imposing. However once you find...

Stayed here for a couple of nights. The landlord was very helpful and gave us a warm welcome. The bar was quiet on a Sunday evening; there were no draught ales but a reasonable selection of bottled ones and good house red. The food we had for dinner and for breakfast was very good. The only thing I didn't like...

The owner of the property was very welcoming and friendly. The quality of the food was excellent and the bedroom was very clean and tidy. Ale was not available on tap but there was a reasonable selection of bottled beers. Slight pricy but not excessively so.

Very convenient overnight stop directly on the Thames Path. Owner was very welcoming although we were a bit early for the 4.00pm check in. Rooms were a bit sparse and the one facing the main road made it a bit noisy although traffic was light during the night. Rooms however were clean and tidy. Investment in new TV for rooms...

........as boaters off the nearby river Thames The Kingfisher was a disappointment. Having moored for the night we walked the Thames path hoping for a good selection of ale and food. We were v disappointed when we arrived only lager on tap and food only for residents. And directions to another eatery that did not seem to exist. Disappointing all...

This inn is next to the bus stop so very accessible from Reading or Oxford. Nice surrounding countryside and villages. Friendly staff, nice clean comfortable room, ensuite, nice breakfast. Would recommend for people needing a reasonably-priced base in the Oxfordshire area. It is on a main road so there is traffic going past.

A lovely clean no-nonsense place to stay. Alexis was a great host and Mayumi cooks a marvelous breakfast ! The hotel is in a beautiful location only 100 metres from the Thames and there are some lovely walks. We would definitely stay there again. John Cheryl and David.

We were having dinner at the nearby Crazy Bear restaurant and decided to stay at the Kingfisher Inn for one night. What a lovely place with a very nice host, Alexis. Room was large and airy, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. There were Tea/coffee making facilities in the room with chocolates plus complimentary bottles of water which were all very...

We arrived at 11:30 on the day of a lunch booking at le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, i.e. long before the earliest check-in time advertised by the Kingfisher. However the room was ready and we were welcomed warmly. After the long le Manoir lunch we returned to the Kingfisher and were given good advice about a walk along the Thames path,...

“On a main road so a room at the rear may be quieter”

“I had a room overlooking the road which is quite busy so if you are not used to traffic ask for a room around the back.”
