A stop-off after a gruelling walk. Sadly both the ales available (Brakspear and Wychwood Gold) were flat, listless and generally poor. Unimpressed.

August 2014
An attractive middle-of-nowhere pub a good 20 minute yomp up the hill from Wargrave. Pretty location and a bit of history about the place - started in Tudor times as a hunting lodge, to which a barn (now dining area) was added 200 years ago. Look out for the huge horns above the entrance. Usually two or three Marstons list ales on in decent nick.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Horns

An attractive pub in this small hamlet a pleasant stroll up from Wargrave, it has the traditional appearance of a country inn, but once inside it has perhaps had a bit of a contemporary makeover at some point. It’s not at all unpleasant, but just not quite as quaint and traditional as you may be expecting going on the outside.

It’s a good sized pub with a number of different rooms, although they all flow in to one another rather than being entirely separate. The flooring is a mixture of carpet and wood boards as well as some flagstones at the front. What appeared to be a dining area was off to the left, with the main drinking part of the pub being an L-shape around the bar counter. This was packed to capacity on a recent Saturday afternoon visit due to the television in the front bar showing the six nations rugby. The locals all seemed a friendly crowd. A small brick fire-place was at the rear of the bar, and this led through in to a light and airy room with pleasant views over the large garden and patio.

Beers on tap were just Brakespear Bitter and Hobgoblin. The solitary cider was Symonds Founders Reserve.
