Eat & Drink

Dining In
The Crab & Boar prides itself on serving up a taste of the great British outdoors, with seasonal game, fresh-off-the-boat oysters and crab, or real ales. The kitchen majors on using local produce with more than a nod to the seasons. Favourite tipples include Sipsmith artisan gin and Nyetimber British bubbly. Start with seared scallops or charred octopus salad, followed perhaps by Cornish game hen or pork loin served with hispi cabbage and chorizo. 

Breakfast
Served until 10am.  Naturally this is a great place to start the day with a full English.

Activities

See & Do
Tee off in the Berkshire countryside at the 18-hole Donnington Valley golf course, a short drive away, or   get the thrill of the chase at nearby Newbury racecourse, home of the Hennessey Gold Cup. Downton Abbey fans can make a trip to Highclere Castle (pre-booking essential), where the famous TV series was filmed. For those keen to bag a pheasant – or trout – during their stay, there are plenty of fishing spots and shooting estates in the vicinity.
