The Modern Inn

18th century roots. 21st century twists.

You’re spoilt for choice of snazzy gastro pubs and dilapidated public houses, but lost for a true foodie experience and warm welcome. You can’t remember when it was last a real ‘treat’ to eat out. You’re stuck for a rural retreat that’s easy to get to, hot on its food, with a serious cellar and perfect for that night or two away from it all. You need the modern inn.

Welcome to The Miller. Find your nook in the cosy bar with its bubbles by the glass and gins you’ve yet to hear of. Dine on fine modern British dishes with unpretentious, yet nothing’s-too-much-trouble service. Rediscover what it is to savour every morsel because your palate’s in overdrive and the wine’s too good to quaff. Spot the locals who are loath to leave. Sleep in like-no-other bedrooms characterful for their aged architecture as much for their bold décor. Wake up from the ultimate slumber provided by luxurious mattresses to the freshest of breakfasts and clean rural air.

Because the modern inn isn’t about snazzy pub grub or mead. It’s about award winning food, produce provenance and storytelling, friendliest of service, and a great night’s sleep.

Since 2014, The Miller has been home to Mary and Nick Galer, host and chef patrons. Both former team members of The Fat Duck Group, at The Miller they bring you their take on elegant food, personally selected wines and effortless service. We encourage you to savour every Miller morsel in our cosy and characterful inn nestled between the Berkshire Downs and the Chiltern Hills in the beautiful village of Goring-on-Thames. Our service ethos is: eat what you want, where you want. So make yourselves at home.

Eat fine food from the freshest seasonal British ingredients.

Drink a well kept pint, a “fruity Friday” cocktail or a glass of well chosen wine.

Sleep like a baby in characterful and individually designed rooms.
