AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu
Open all year
Dog friendly

Right opposite the village cricket ground, the imposing Fox draws in spectators with the promise of great microbrewery beers from the likes of West Berkshire Brewery and artisan local ciders from Tutts Clump. It's also a useful stop for ramblers exploring the rolling countryside that cossets this chic, well appointed, village inn. Outside tables skim lanes overlooking rich farmland; or choose a spot in the modern-rustic bar with its polished wooden floor, settles and log-burning stove to consider the confident menu of tried and tested pub classics and contemporary British dishes. Robust favourites include pie of the day or haddock and chips; the carte presents an eclectic choice. Anticipate deep-fried tiger prawns with pickled vegetables and sweet chilli dip to start, trumping this with fillet of beef Wellington with a port and Stilton sauce, savoury potatoes and vegetables; or baked fillet of Shetland cod with herb mash and aromatic tomato sauce.
