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; the 5-hour shepherd's pie deserves equal consideration; reserve a seat in the airy conservatory and indulge. The wider menu is equally impressive; braised venison and beef pie cooked with beetroot-infused gravy, or the 6-hour cooked Gressingham duck in the 'River and Orchard' dish (with roast almond, sour cherry and port sauce) cases in point.
