The Five Horseshoes

Maidensgrove, HENLEY-ON-THAMES, RG9 6EX

There's every chance of seeing red kites wheeling around above this 16th-century, brick and flint pub overlooking the Chiltern Hills. Its two snug bar areas are characterised by beams, wrought iron, brasswork, open fires, traditional pub games and Brakspear's real ales on the handpumps. To dine in the large conservatory restaurant is to enjoy an approach to traditional English dishes that often involves tweaking them to intensify the flavours, thus a menu typically begins with pan-seared pigeon breast, walnuts, grapes and vegetable crisps; and Cornish mussels marinière. Then to follow might be a main course of poached smoked haddock fillet with poached egg, spinach and hollandaise; a 35-day aged steak, hand-cut chips and roast tomatoes; and Lincolnshire sausages, vegetables, mash, and bacon and mushroom sauce. There's sandwiches if you just want a light lunch. Dogs are welcome in the bar and two large beer gardens.
