Had a two course meal with two glasses of wine for £70. Well worth the money, great flavours, service and the menu is varied. Can recommend the scallops, beetroot /goats cheese starter and chicken main.

The welcome at this excellent pub is great and all the staff are cheerful and efficient. However, the room we stayed in was 'undergoing improvements' and barely worth the cost. Witness a brand-new and excellent shower alongside dated sanitary ware and even a cupboard full...More

About
Description
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 ...More 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 an 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. Less

I didn't leave mine as they are welcome in the bar area and at breakfast I put him in the car so we had some peace. I'm not sure what their policy is on the matter.

Not for staying at, all the rooms as far as I could tell are upstairs. I would phone them to double check.
