A popular rural free house, this is a perfect place for refreshment following a day at the Newbury Races, walking the Berkshire Downs, or visiting Highclere Castle. The bar menu features a good range of favourites, such as medallions of pork fillet with cider sauce, black pudding and mustard mashed potato; chicken Madras curry; gourmet minted lamb burger with brie; steak and kidney suet pudding; and warm chocolate fudge cake for afters. There’s a large front garden, a children’s play area and a rear patio with parasols – perfect for summer drinking.
