Pub with rooms above. Very friendly & accommodating. Excellent food, great atmosphere! Please note that since the rooms are above the pub it will be a bit noisy until closing time. Not a huge issue on a lovely summer night.

Sublime Sunday
We booked to stay at Kingsclere as it is close to Highclere House - a lovely house to visit. The Crown was a lovely pub and they did an excellent Sublime Sunday deal where we had dinner, bed and breakfast for £100 for two. Fantastic value! We had a lovely meal, good service and a pleasant room.

Fantastic! Highly recommend
Hope to stay here again. The food is gorgeous, rooms fresh, comfortable, and a few unexpected freebies for residents! The price is amazing. Staying tonight in a more expensive room in Birmingham in a ‘respected’ chain hotel. It dies not come close to the Bel and dragon. Lovely staff, can’t do enough for you, very customer focused. Large chains have a lot to learn from this beautiful little place.

Winner.... look no further!
OMG... I try to do price myself out of the market when leaving a good hotel review, but this place goes the extra mile, then a bit more. The rooms are fantastic. With an adjoining games room / snug (just for guests) which really adds value. For both solo travellers and families alike. (I travelled for business, but would happily stay here with my 1 yr old as the space available really makes the difference for crawling etc....) it really is a place that works. It's a shame I don't work this way more often as if I did I would never look elsewhere for a room. Bar area cosy and comfortable. Food excellent. That's it... demand increases... I can no longer afford to stay! Credit where credit is due though... these guys nailed it....!

Great place to stay!
A great place to stay! The venue was historic while having excellent amenities. Each of the 8 rooms had a unique theme. Bottles of whiskey or gin in various places within the hotel for the late night drink if wanted -- nice touch! Can't wait to stay there again!

Excellent pub with great food. Room was a bit noisy with office next door but all in all really good. Will definitely stay again
