Village-centre pub in the picturesque Kennet Valley

AA Pick of the Pubs
Open all year
From its strategic position in the centre of the village, this 17th-century coaching inn can keep an eye on everything coming up the High Street. Just outside, on a little green, a lovely old tree provides shade for a couple of benches, while the light, spacious bar serves beers from its own brewery, including Flint Knapper, Ramsbury Gold and Farmers Best. The kitchen offers a selection of hearty meals, maybe salad of Jerusalem artichoke with hazelnut, mushroom ketchup and black truffle, then Creedy Carver duck breast with variations of carrot, smoked potato and turnip. As well as the bar and restaurant, you can also eat breakfast, light bites and lunches in Cafe Bella.
