Woody Nook at Woodcote

Goring Road, WOODCOTE, Reading, RG8 0SD

1 rosettes

Opposite the village green and cricket pitch, creeper-hung Woody Nook couldn't look more English with its leaded windows and beams. The menu has an international slant, with an ingenious kitchen turning out starters such as arancini stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella in puttanesca sauce and crab flavoured with ginger, citrus, coriander and chilli and sauced with rouille. Mains sound more familiar to 21st-century ears: ham-wrapped monkfish tail, say, with fettuccine sauced with tomato and basil, and chargrilled beef fillet with peppercorn sauce, fondant potato, mushrooms and tomatoes. End with exotic pineapple carpaccio with coconut ice cream and rum and ginger sauce or the admirable selection of cheese.
