Bell & Dragon

High Street, Cookham, Berkshire, SL6 9SQ Tel: 01628 521263
Back to top MAP Excellent Food Well Kept Ales 3 Real Fires Children Welcome Well Behaved Dogs Welcome Thames Path M40 J4 Close to the River Thames Professional Service Highly Recommended Nominated by Cath Healy
The Bell & Dragon or 'Bel and the Dragon' is an excellent 14th Century wattle & daub inn serving a wonderful menu, excellent cask ales and good wines. Some prefer the inn before it was refurbished to form a few small rooms that open up into a large open plan dining area but the warm welcome and quality service can't be faulted. Gone are the copper topped tables, replaced by rustic timber ones - there still remains an Old English feel.

Bull Inn

High Street, Bisham, Berkshire, SL7 1RR Tel: 01628 484734
Back to top MAP Excellent Food Thames Path M40 J4 Close to the River Thames Professional Service Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre Highly Recommended Nominated by Ian Ruskin Brown
854.jpg (20441 bytes)Excellent inn originally called the 'Papal Bull' but known now as the 'Bull at Bisham'. Dating back to 1250 when the Stonemason building the village church occupied the building, the Bull now serves superb food which has a strong French / continental bias. The service is excellent as is the wine list and beer quality. Located just a few yards from Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre.

Crown Inn

Back to top MAP Real Fire Professional Service Thames Path M4 J8/9 Close to the River Thames Nominated by Cath Healy
Delightful 14th Century inn with very low beamed ceilings. It has a relaxed atmosphere with great open fires, friendly staff and good food. The large beer garden in the summer is always busy. Well kept ales and a fair choice of wines make the Crown one of the many good establishments around Bray worth visiting.

Wonderful Tudor inn filled with panelling and beams, sturdy oak furniture and leather porter's chairs. Well kept ales are complimented with good food, good wines and friendly locals. The Hinds Head has a real homely feel and even the 'log effect' gas fires look almost like the real thing.

851.jpg (21841 bytes)851b.jpg (26631 bytes)Monkey Island Hotel is as amazing as it's name suggests. Acquired by Charles Spencer in 1773 and boasting former Kings of England as customers, the hotel is a perfect venue for wedding parties. Situated on an island in the middle of the Thames, the only access is via a picturesque footbridge or by boat. Not a venue for real ale lovers but more of a destination for a relaxing stay accompanied by excellent food.
