The Pub

Set in the rolling hill of West Berkshire, the Crab & Boar showcases the best of Britain, from its fields to its shores.

Its ever-evolving menus include fresh, local produce, from rich game, to off-the-boat crab and dishes tip their hats to the seasons.

In summer diners can enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace, enjoying beautiful views out over the countryside.

The pub is proud of the connections it has with some of the country’s leading producers and suppliers, including seasonal cheese by A David, to sustainable fish fresh from the local morning catch at Kingfisher of Brixham.

Something to Eat and Drink

Food plays an important part in this country pub’s ethos, but goes hand in hand with its top-quality tipples.

Staff have spent time selecting the best local ales and award-winning British spirits and wines to complement the food.

From Sipsmith artisan gin to Nyetimber’s British bubbles, these is something for everyone on the drinks list – even Snuffle dog beer for any canine companions.
