The Elephant at Pangbourne

Church Road, PANGBOURNE, RG8 7AR

1 rosettes

Prepare to enjoy the opulence of the former British Empire at this smart boutique hotel in Pangbourne, beside the River Thames. Throughout, hand-crafted Indian furniture and fabrics set the scene - be it in the more casual BaBar bistro or Christoph's stylish fine-dining restaurant. There's an enclosed garden, if the weather lives up to the theme. The menu sometimes harks back to the UK's colonial past with the use of the accordant spicing, but it's broadly modish European in focus; start, perhaps, with pecan, chicken and pork pâté served with rustic bread, apple juice and jelly before poppadom-encrusted coley with Bombay potatoes and sweet curry sauce, and finish with an Elephant knickerbocker glory or bitter chocolate parfait with rosewater and cardamom ice cream.
