Warm welcome with friendly hosts and great accommodation. An added bonus is the restaurant with imaginative food and a good range of beers and wines. Would certainly like to return and will highly recommend.

We went with a couple of friends on a Saturday night. The menu choices were very varied and extensive. It was really difficult to choose! The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Good range of real ales. Will definitely go back. The owners are lovely and all staff very attentive. Alfie the dog is great too!

We left it until our last day to try out The Ugly Bug Inn but heartily wish we had gone there on day one. Very friendly owners with their equally friendly dog and cat! Food was delicious and very reasonable and service excellent, pity they are not nearer Newbury!

Taken to the Ugly Bug as a birthday treat by my daughter. We were greeted by a very friendly staff. After getting our drink we were shown to the lounge were our order for meal was taken. When meal was ready taken to our table in their well layed out dining room. The food was great, well presented and hot....

We booked in here as it was local to a wedding we were attending. Having heard from another guest attending the wedding that their booking had been cancelled just a week before visiting by the pub owners I was rather worried that ours would be too - but it appears they only over booked by one room that night....I'm still...

This is a difficult place to categorise. The first thing to note is that it is quite remote, there is virtually nothing within walking distance, but on the other hand it is well placed if you are going to drive. It is a country inn, but it is quite modern in many respects. The rooms are excellent, and very comfortable....

I had to do a little searching to find vacancies for a Saturday night at the end of August so I was not really sure what to expect when I managed to find two rooms at The Ugly Bug Inn. Were very pleasantly surprised. The inn looks a little old fashioned but the rooms are nicely set out with huge,...

A very rude patronising woman called me just a week and a day before I was supposed to visit to say the twin room I booked early Summer was no longer available. The only weak vague explanation I had was it was because it was a twin!? She would do what she could but couldn't confirm until 2 days before...

Our first visit to The UB following friends' recommendations. A charming welcome from the host, a relaxed and warm atmosphere, and a comprehensive menu. The food was of good quality, well served, and the house wine was very drinkable. We would go again.

First impressions are "what a lovely looking pub", then you notice the enormous ugly green pub sign, what an eyesore to put on the side of such a beautiful building! Then we saw the list of rules and regulations on the front door! Very dark and dreary inside, no atmosphere felt at all. Made our way to the bar and,...
