user reviews of the Bladebone Inn, Chapel Row

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This really does seem to be a pub on the up, given that I'm awarding it a 7 and suspect that more visits might make me increase that further. We contacted the pub in advance as we were just passing through and the landlord was most helpful, as were the staff when we arrived, asking for a beer from Two Cocks which was ready but not on tap yet - they got it from the cellar. The other beers we tried (Vale "Isis Tawny" and Ardwell "Crouch-Hold-Engage") were all very good. The pub was very busy, maybe due to a French Wine Tasting Dinner that was announced on their website. However, the mix of ages and the fact that women outnumbered men that night speaks well of the pub's style and atmosphere, as well as the welcome to walkers and dogs. The menu (bar and restauant) is attractive/interesting and judging from the folk there, is well-prepared too. This looks like a pub to follow and to support and see whether this improvement is sustained.

Has changed hands in Nov 2011 and now run by a bright young couple from London. Our walking party of 15 thoroughly enjoyed our meal here today - really tasty Sunday roasts, lovely desserts and reasonably priced. The service was very friendly if a little slow, but they are still in the early stages of running the place. The pub and dining areas are still being redecorated and clearly going towards in quality gastro pub end of the spectrum, but the new owners are trying to keep the atmosphere warm and welcoming. Staff are very friendly, there is a large open fire in the dining room and dogs & muddy boots are both welcome!! Well worth a visit and with a few more ales on tap and a larger selection of desserts this will be an 8+ out of 10 pub.

The food and drink choice here is rather good. Decor in places looks like it needs a good paint. Beer garden is very tidy and neat, like a real back garden. Adorable friendly dogs make this worth going back to.

I was really surprised to see no reviews of this pub as it seems to tick all the boxes. Visited with some friends on Saturday afternoon, friendly staff, local beer (West Berks Good Old Boy) and a good Suffolk Cider. Great location for walkers on the edge of Bucklebury common, interesting history, didn't eat this time but plenty of other people were. Looking forward to a return visit.
