About the Pub

Originally a farm on the Mapledurham House estate dating from the 1600s, and a former Gales pub, this Brunning & Price owned establishment is now a cosy pub and comfortable restaurant. The original low beamed bar has ample seating for drinkers and serves five ales, with local microbreweries often featured in addition to the regular Loddon Hoppit and West Berkshire Good Old Boy. Real ale prices are discounted by 60p per pint from 5-7pm Mon-Fri. The larger restaurant area is furnished with bookcases and numerous prints and has a wide-ranging good value menu. A large secluded garden at the rear has a shaded seating area overlooking fields and also has a kid's play area. Meet-the-brewer evenings several times a year and mini-beer festival in April/May at which 6 or so local brewers attend to give samplings of their ales. Huge gin selection of around 140 types, purportedly the largest of any bar in Oxfordshire, and also frequent meet-the-distiller evenings. Open for breakfast on Saturday mornings, with monthly walks at this time also proving very popular.
