This red-brick, 17th-century village inn effortlessly combines old-world charm with modern comfort; smooth leather sofas sitting above chequered tiles in the lobby, chunky wood furniture over a rugged parquet floor in the dining room.
Food is unfussy but delicious, as evidenced by the Michelin rating, and flavour is king. Beef and game are reared on the Yattendon estate and eggs come from a local farm. Dishes take inspiration from around the globe: katsu curry with panko aubergine and pak choi, risotto primavera with dukkah roasted vine tomatoes or the classic slow roasted lamb shoulder.
The candle-lit dining room is cosy, with open fires in winter, and come summer the walled garden throngs with people enjoying the borders and a game of petanque. It’s dog-friendly, so much so that they’ll get roast beef if they’re lucky, and the countryside nearby is blissful and laced with footpaths.
