An historic pub near the River Thames has been placed on the market after closing down.

The John Barleycorn in Goring is a “charming” 18th-century tavern-style village pub up for sale for £750,000.

The former owners describe it as “an old village pub, full of character, with low ceilings and old beams" with a "sunny beer garden, and cosy bar with fireplace”.

“Being Grade II listed, the property is of period styling.”
