The bar

Our light, spacious bar retains its character as the original country inn and is the perfect retreat for an after-work drink or supper – or a proper pub lunch, relaxing with the Sunday ‘papers. Everyone is made to feel welcome, from our regulars, ladies who lunch or the impromptu visitor.

The bar is dog friendly (for friendly dogs) and tables are offered on a first-come first served basis, unlike the restaurant where booking really is recommended. Try our hand-pulled traditional ales from our very own brewery, which combines Kennet valley water with the highest quality home grown barley from our estate. 

Within 10 minutes, enjoy Marlborough, host to the world-famous seat of learning, Marlborough College, browse an abundance of ladies fashion boutiques amongst a chic cafe-culture atmosphere.

Equally near is Hungerford, your centre for countryside outfitters, the departure point for narrow boat excursions along the Kennet and Avon Canal or unearth that elusive treasure in one of the many antique shops.
