Located in the Berkshire village of Curridge, and within easy driving distance of Oxford, Swindon, Reading and Newbury, this rural property is the ideal country retreat for tasty food and charming boutique rooms. The restaurant serves a mix of traditional and hearty English food, as well as a host of innovative world cuisine plates, making this an excellent – and affordable – choice for a break.
The restaurant prides itself on the use of both local and seasonal produce, working with family-run suppliers, ensuring the best experience for its diners. The menu changes regularly, and the knowledgeable staff are always on hand to advise on dishes and drinks. Choose from plates such as salt and pepper calamari, Thai crab bon bons, confit leg of rabbit with braised barley, or deconstructed beef wellington. For a bird's eye view, book the chef's table and see the culinary masters at work.
Relax in one of the 9 well-designed rooms, where each features flat-screen TVs, facilities to make tea and coffee, 24-hour room access, and added extras such as biscuits. Modern, and decorated in warm tones, they make for a comfy place to rest your head.
The inn is ideally situated for a wide range of day trips and family fun: racing fans have Newbury Racecourse nearby, with the market town itself being a charming place; and for fans of Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle, the shooting location for the series, is less than 10 miles away. Nearby Donnington Castle is also a treat for lovers of history and spectacular architecture. And for those wanting to explore the West Berkshire countryside and the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are three village walks you can take directly from the pub.
Free parking is available.
