WOOLSTONE, Nr Faringdon, SN7 7QL
Built in Elizabethan times, this ancient, black-and-white timbered village pub appears as if on cue after an invigorating walk along the Ridgeway and White Horse Hill (NT), Uffington. It is said that Thomas Hughes (of Tom Brown's Schooldays fame) penned some of his works here; indeed, one is called The Scouring of the White Horse. Upholstered stools line the traditional bar, and the fireplace conceals two priest holes which you can see if you don't mind getting your knees grubby. A weekday lunch could be Cajun spiced chicken burger with smoked Applewood cheese, or smoked haddock kedgeree with poached egg. For dinner, how about pan-fried turbot with fresh Lamorna crab, chilli and tomato linguine? The pub has a garden, although dogs are welcome throughout.
