The White Oak

The Pound, COOKHAM, SL6 9QE

2 rosettes

The team behind the White Oak reopened it in 2008 as a modern dining pub. Set in Stanley Spencer's beloved Cookham, it has splashy contemporary artwork, bare tables and generous washes of natural light from a skylight and patio doors. The core of the operation is traditional pub cooking, including a Monday steak night, but with some latter-day technical ambition. That comes off well in gin and tonic salmon with lime, cucumber and treacle granola, followed perhaps by rump and sweetbreads of Welsh lamb with artichoke puree and shimejis. Gird your loins at pudding stage for carrot cake with sweet-pickled sultanas, cream cheese and walnuts.
