The Shoulder of Mutton

Playhatch, READING, RG4 9QU

This rustic inn with an airy conservatory restaurant draws a dedicated crowd keen to share chef-proprietor Alan Oxlade's passion for the finest foodstuffs and local Loddon ale. The pub specialises in mutton dishes (of course) and is proud to be a member of HRH The Prince of Wales' Mutton Renaissance Club. The signature dish is Welsh organic mountain mutton, slow roasted for seven hours; some dishes take up to two days of precision cooking. Everything on the menu has an inventive name: 'Titan's Crust' is a vegetarian tarte Tatin, 'Goosey Goosey Gander' a free-range goose breast served with a port and redcurrant sauce. The walled garden is a popular retreat.
