We were on our way home and stopped in here for a quick lunch. It has changed a lot since we last visited a few years ago. And changed for the better. We were given a warm welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble. It is an excellently family run pub now. The beer and wine selection was good and they were able to offer gluten free bread. I had the fish finger sandwich which was very good. The bread was griddled and the goujons inside were superb and the batter was crunchy right up till the end. My wife had egg mayo on gluten free bread which was also very good. A real surprise at how much this place has changed and is so so so much better. Great food, great people and we will be back without a doubt. Best of luck.

Stopped in here on way back to Southampton. We had a fish finger sandwich which included home made fish finger and a gluten free egg mayo sandwich. It is so great to be able to eat a sandwich in a pub as so few have gluten free bread which I don’t understand these days.
Staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough for you
Good prices
Highly recommend this pub
Thank you

Friendly welcome despite being one chef down. Fairly busy as it was Easter school break. Opted for the lunchtime sandwiches which made a good snack as they came with french fries (chips). Overall a pleasant lunch and drink. Location is below the Newbury By-pass (A34) and the Newbury access road so quite a bit of traffic noise if outside. Access not really possible unless going by car or a determined walker. Plenty of parking space.

I sent my boss and some colleagues here for dinner last week and they could not rave about it enough. They are not the easiest people to please so I was ecstatic to hear this! They mentioned that the staff were very welcoming and had great banter with them. They said the food was a solid 11 out of 10! They loved it. Thank you Fox & Hounds for looking after them.
