    Both high in my estimation.
    French Horn not cheap, but the Mill is a great evening out.
    Because of fear of not getting a mooring along that stretch , celebrating 25 years of marriage and going to see the Noel Coward play "Private Lives" at The Mill we actually went by car and booked into the French Horn. We stayed over night in one of their cottages across the road from the main hotel. Easy walk back to The Mill, excellent meal as always and the play was good. The cottage was a dream with its own outside area with table and chairs for eating breakfast and air con inside the cottage. Just a dream. SWMBO was over the moon and no falling out about arriving in good time and problems with moorings. Would highly recommend.

    I'm at the Sonning Moorings outside Uri Geller's house at the moment. He still owns it but doesn't live there at the moment and has a tenant taking over in early August. Whether that will affect the mooring situation remains to be seen.
    The green District Enforcement signs are, at the moment, an idle threat as they are no longer involved. The £10 a night mooring fees posted, with the boat name, through a letter box in the fence all go to charity.

    What a mess! DE have re-signed the whole of that stretch in the last month or less - but being 'highly organised' have not placed it on their website which you would think a competant organisation would do... If you're happy to fend off = ignore DE's threats, should they arise, then moor. There are other threads on here about DE which folks new to this issue could read.

    The DE signs were certainly here in May but can be ignored because they are not collecting the mooring fees, Uri Geller's staff are. Perhaps they lost the contract.
    Whether this changes when the new tenant takes over, we'll see.
