A country pub in the finest tradition

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

The ancient walls of Calleva Atrebatum, known today as Silchester Roman City, are some of the best preserved in Britain. The ruins are not far away from this 19th-century Fuller's pub overlooking the common and cricket pitch. Two bar areas, with a log-burner in the middle, lead to a pleasant conservatory and pretty garden. A full lunch and evening menu includes baguettes and baked jacket potatoes; home-made steak and ale pie; ham, double egg and chips; fish of the day; and goats' cheese and tomato tart. Daily specials broaden the choice.
