Harden's survey result
“What a treat” – reporters (and the odd local celeb) “absolutely adore” former Heston staffers Nick & Mary Galer’s 18th-century inn; there are shout-outs for the “cosy” fire-lit ambiance, but it’s the “exceptional” food which stands apart, be it superior breakfasts, “lovely puds” or “unusual” libations (think Cornish pastis).
Elevated gastropub cuisine with a “unique twist” is on the menu at former Heston Blumenthal staffers Nick & Mary Galer’s modernised 18th-century inn. The kitchen’s “extraordinary attention to detail” delivers some “memorable” dishes (e.g. “a glorious clementine soup with candied citrus”).
In 2014 Mary & Nick Galer followed stints at Heston’s Fat Duck Group by taking over this “friendly” 18th century (but contemporary style) pub-with-rooms in a picturesque village handy for the Berkshire Downs and Chilterns, praised by reviewers for its “lovely, well balanced dishes”.
Taken over by Mary and Nick Galer, ex-of The Fat Duck Group, in 2014, this 18th-century coaching inn, in a pretty Thames-side village betwixt the Berkshire Downs and Chilterns, wins praise for its “fantastic” and “really well-presented food” (including a “perfect Sunday lunch”).
