Ever-successful village pub

At a glance

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 garlic baked scallops with cheddar cheese to start, trumping this with mixed game and juniper berry pie; or whole roast poussin with chunky chips and marinated vine tomatoes. Round things off with a honeycomb Eton mess or a passion fruit crème brulée with chilli and pineapple salsa.
