The Pub

This beautiful country pub is nestled in the picturesque West Berkshire village of Yattendon and boast Michelin rated food, luxurious bedrooms and award-winning ales.

It is proud to be child and dog friendly and extends a warm welcome to all visitors.

It is set in beautiful grounds, with a walled beer garden and its own boules piste.

The Food

Superb local produce and fantastic suppliers in close proximity to the pub help head chef Nick MacGregor create his simple, seasonal dishes that gain annual recognition in the Michelin Guide and the Good Food Guide.

The beef and game come from the Yattendon estate, farmhouse cheeses from Greys of Pangbourne and eggs from Beechwood Farm in Hampstead Norreys.

The pub’s commitment to supporting local businesses and ensuring it only serves the freshest and very best ingredients is unwavering.

The food is best enjoyed in front of one of the two roaring log fires in the winter or settled in to the intimate dining room overlooking the village square. In the summer lunch and dinner can be served outside on the lawn or under the vines.

A children’s menu is available.
