Our Name

The Bunk Inn derived its name from the habit of local workers, mainly from the nearby brickworks, ‘bunking’ off work early for a drink. The pub was previously called The New Inn. The term ‘to bunk off’ or ‘to do a bunk’ is of indefinite origin but is thought to derive from people absconding from work, school or home, escaping from capture or punishment, or merely hiding from detection. Many would hide in the bunks of rural barns or, in more extreme cases, actually flee to sea, where they’d sleep in bunk beds.

Late booking for an overnight business stay. Very welcoming, great service, high quality food served with a good beer. The room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space. Liked the stay so much I subsequently returned for a business meeting and received equally good service with superb coffee.

Spacious, quirky room well equipment with tea, coffee, and chocolate and wine (you have to pay for the wine and chocolate). A great night sleep and an amazing breakfast too. The service is second to none.

We booked one night here as we wanted to look around Newbury & Oxford. A lovely find. Superb room & roll top bath awaited us. Enjoyed a delicious meal in the evening. Friendly staff & a pleasant stay.

Very friendly staff and a good location for business in Newbury. The rooms are spacious and very nicely decorated. The breakfast in the morning is also very scrumptious. Plenty of parking adjacent to the hotel.
