It has been said that Gerry and Ann Price’s renowned village pub out-manoeuvres many a competitor. One particular attraction is its special wine events, linked to its own on-site wine shop (open on request) whose wide range includes Pinot Noir and Claret collections, magnums of reds, bin ends and own-label Labradouro Tinto, created by Gerry, who loves the Douro region of Portugal, and his Labrador dog. But don’t let this passion deter you from just slipping in for a pint of West Berkshire Good Old Boy, local Thurstons Horsell Gold, or Aspall cider, with a newspaper in the bar or out on the clematis-hung terrace overlooking the garden and boules pitch. The modern interior is open plan with wooden floors, crisp linen-clothed tables and an open fire. In the newly revamped kitchen, the brigade make great use of fish from the coast and game from Windsor Great Park, or shot by Gerry himself. Seasonal menus reveal all with such dishes as Royal pigeon breasts with white pudding, baby beets and port reduction; wild mushroom, chestnut and spinach risotto, rocket and truffle oil; pan-fried selection of fresh British fish with crushed new potatoes, seasonal greens and lemon beurre blanc; and seared calves’ liver with haggis mash, spinach, crispy bacon and port jus. At lunchtime, consider pairing Cornish mussels and hand-cut chips with a glass of white Rioja. There’s a comprehensive bar menu, too. Weekly fish nights, monthly quizzes and 12 boutique bedrooms further enhance the overall package. Children over five years old are welcome for meals.
