Refurbished pub has a room with a view

Refurbished pub has a room with a view

FAMOUS for its lovely views, the Five Horseshoes at Maidensgrove has just completed a major refurbishment.

The project was jointly funded by Brakspear and licensees Dan and Tracey Taverner.

The conservatory restaurant with its unrivalled views across the Swyncombe valley benefits from a new floor, ceiling, lighting, decoration and is a delightful space to enjoy a meal.

Five Horseshoes fans will be relieved to know that the 17th century bar area remains the same — with its cosy atmosphere, open fires and candlelight.

The pub, well known to long-term local residents, is a bit of a hidden gem, about 20 minutes’ drive from Henley. You approach from Stonor across Maidensgrove Common — a fabulous open space next to the pub.

Several national trails pass close by and it is one of the best walking and cycling areas in the district.

With a strong reputation for good food, everything is made in-house from fresh ingredients, and the menu changes with the seasons, focusing on local produce, such as Nettlebed cheeses and local game.

The pub has been listed in the foodie guides for years, so you won’t be disappointed. During November there is a weekday set menu at £12.95 for two courses.
