Fodor's Expert Review The Row Barge

West St., , RG9 2ED, England

This historic, 15th-century pub certainly looks the part, with low-beamed ceilings and a fire crackling in the grate. The uncommonly large guest rooms upstairs are a pleasant surprise, with a sophisticated, contemporary design that retains a few original features, such as exposed woodwork. The inn also serves good, unfussy British classics (beef and Guinness pie; sausages, mash, and gravy) which you can enjoy in the lovely terrace garden if the weather's good. On Sundays, stop in for the popular weekly roast.
