Reading Road, SHIPLAKE, RG9 4BX
Between Henley-on-Thames and Reading, The Plowden Arms takes its name from the family who occupied Shiplake Court (now Shiplake College) in the 17th century. Period features, original beams and a working fireplace are the setting for Brakspear beers, draught ciders, and a menu that takes its inspiration from forgotten dishes of bygone times. The recipe for Alexis Soyer's Lamb 'Reform', for example, dates from 1839; and the pudding of Barley cream (on the menu with blackcurrant compôte) was first created in 1859 by Robert Kemp Philp. Other dishes that might tempt are devilled kidneys on toast; and whole roast poussin, onion cake, baby vegetables and Madeira gravy.
