Situated in the stunning countryside of Old Windsor, Berkshire, the gastropub, which is overseen by celebrity chef Adam Handling, specialises in British dishes with a luxury twist.
Its set menu has previously included dishes like beef tartare with smoked pepper and crispy potatoes, and corn-fed chicken with purple-sprouting broccoli and London Miso.
There have also been sides including green salad and dessert such as the King’s trifle and a caramel soft serve sandwich.
Adam Handling’s cooking is all about celebrating the produce he uses – with his unique dishes packed full of flavour to really get the most out of the ingredients.
Furthermore, there is a full vegan menu on offer. This has previously included the famous dish Mother, made from celeriac, apple, dates, beetroot cashew and lemon, as well as a mango salad, wild mushroom risotto or a spiced aubergine, onion fritter.
The team go out of the way to use all parts of the produce. For instance, the knuckles, tail and claws of a lobster are all used, and plants sourced locally or from the gastropub’s very own garden.
There’s also the option for guests to stay the night in the pub’s two bedrooms. The rooms have been created with history and luxury in mind and every piece of furniture tells a story.
Customers can expect a freestanding bath in the living room of each bedroom. What’s more, the overnight packages include breakfast, as well as full access to the gardens and the option to take one of the Nespresso Velosophy bikes (made using recycled coffee capsules) for a spin.
Guests can also dine in style in the private dining room, which seats up to 12 people, and comes complete with its own personal chef and waiting staff, who make sure to ensure a special occasion.
