The Experience

Nick Galer (ex-Fat Duck) and Mary run their inn with enthusiasm and charm. You can have breakfast in bed, bring your dog (treats on tap), arrange a cookery demo from Nick including lunch and a glass of wine or book a nine-course tasting menu. They do ‘locals’ dinners’, wine evenings and also offer to pay £10 towards your train fare if you travel from London.

Nick’s style of cooking is modern British, and he’s keen on spontaneity and choosing the best seasonal ingredients he can find. There are unusual gins, cocktails and an extensive wine list – each bottle comes with a story that Mary is happy to tell you. There’s an informal feel throughout and you can eat where you want – cosy bar or restaurant.

Most of the bedrooms are on the first floor, with two suites up in the eaves on the second. They all have the quirky fun touch of Mary’s design, each one different, and of varying sizes. There’s a small courtyard garden for having a pint in the sun.

In the centre of busy Goring, just a stone's throw from the Thames, this 18th century coaching inn has had an impressive facelift. Thanks to the love and dedication of Mary and Nick Galer, who have been at the helm for four years, its reputation is growing. Nick whips up special taster menus and lunchtime cookery demos, as well as lovely dinners for locals.

The neighbourhood

Goring-on-Thames is a large village between the Berkshire Downs and the Chiltern Hills. The Ridgeway passes nearby – the Goring to Wantage walk. Ramble along the river, hire a boat, book a Shakespeare performance by the Goring Players or a band in the village hall. There’s an interesting collection of small local shops; Pierreponts is a popular café worth popping in to. Wallingford is 5 miles away, Reading 8; Oxford is a 30-minute train ride.

Local points of interest from Mary Galer

  • Goring on Thames is a beautiful village on the river bank. There are Thames Path and Ridgeway walks on our doorstep. And a train line with direct access to London.
  • Goring High Street is awash with stylish boutiques and a deli. Around and about this ancient village are fabulous examples of beautiful architecture and surprising shops and pubs.
  • On the edge of the Chilterns and the banks of the Thames, walking, rambling, trail walking and running is hugely popular. Goring is the starting point or midpoint of many cross country events.
  • We source much of our food from local suppliers including local game, locally reared meats, and vegetables. These all go towards helping Nick extract the most flavour from his ingredients to present the most intricate and experiential dishes.


Mary Galer

Nick and Mary met in France. They ran a pub in Dorchester on Thames, and they are both former team members of The Fat Duck Group. Mary started working in a cafe at 14, went on to do a De Vere training course. They completely refurbished The Miller of Mansfield and have been running it since 2014.
