There was no one at the reception desk when we arrived and no means of attracting attention. However, the receptionist, when she arrived, apologised so charmingly that we did not feel aggrieved. This set the tone of the stay. The outstanding point was the excellence of the staff. In spite of its locatiion alongside the excellent Wokingham Theatre (the best amateur theatre we have ever come across), it does not offer a pre-theatre dinner, with the restaurant opening too late for a comfortable meal before the theatre opens. So, we did not eat dinner at the hotel. Breakfast was reasonably good.
Although this inn is part of a local pub, the rooms in a separate, quiet building not on a major road. The owners are nice and accommodating.. The breakfast is fine - you can order the "full English" if you want during the week, but weekends are continental, delivered to your room the night before.
The hours of the pub are 3-9 and the kitchen is only open for dinner - not on weekends or holidays. We did not try the pub fare but as mentioned breakfast was fine. We ordered a local ale to be nice but to be honest I felt like I was taking up a local's regular seat at the bar. Better if you have a car - we are from the U.S. and don't like to drive on the left side.
This market town is known as one of the healthiest places to live, part of which is due to the strong sense of community. This is seen in the amount of schools, churches, leisure groups and local events in the area. Suburbs abundant in red brick and Tudor style homes surround the town center. The annual Wokingham Festival is a local favorite with food and drink stalls and live music.
