Playhatch, READING, RG4 9QU
Close to Caversham Lakes and the River Thames; a pleasant walled cottage garden, beams and open fire grace this long-established local favourite in tiny Playhatch. Beer lovers pop in for ales brewed just up the road by Loddon Brewery, whilst diners travel from afar to indulge in chef-patron Alan Oxlade's astonishing mutton dishes. The 7-hour roasted shoulder of mutton is famous, and the Moroccan-style tagine of mutton leg is worth a mention too; reserve a seat in the airy conservatory and indulge. The wider menu is equally tempting - chicken and wild mushroom pie; slow-cooked Gressingham duck breast, with roast almond, sour fresh salmon, cherry and balsamic sauce; and smoked haddock and prawns lasagne.
