Village tavern just outside Newbury

At a glance

Bar menu
Restaurant menu
Beer festival
Open all year
Dog friendly

One of the oldest village buildings, this inn is owned by the Upham Group so you’ll find their brewery’s tasty beers at the bar. The log fire-warmed village snug remains a comfy focus for chatter or contemplation, whilst an airy restaurant with eye-catching decor or a heated patio offer alternative locations to sit, sup and study the compact, well-balanced menu. The chefs home-in on local suppliers and create dishes such as glazed pork faggot with black pudding, baked potato purée, Savoy cabbage and honeyed parsnip; and curried Brixham crab and leek omelette. Specials may feature game from the local estates and woods that characterise this green heart of Berkshire.
