Just a stroll (dog walkers welcome) from the Kennet & Avon Canal, this trim thatched pub is tucked away in the verdant Kennet Valley. Indulge in a beer from the respected West Berkshire Brewery whilst contemplating views from the sheltered beer garden, or sit beside the log fire, anticipating your choice from the kitchen overseen by experienced French chef-patron Laurent Lebeau. His essentially British menu might include Old Winchester cheese soufflé, followed by steak and kidney pudding or line caught haddock with West Berkshire beer batter and chips. There’s a thoughtful gluten-free menu, as well. As for the wines, Laurent chooses well.
