The Sun in the Wood

Stoney Lane, Ashmore Green, nr Newbury, RG18 9HF

It is places like this that give country pubs a good name. Well run, close to a good country town yet in a rural setting it is a quality example of how things should be done and is therefore little wonder that it is a buzzy place, full of appreciative people, both customers and staff. A woodland garden and heated decking terrace leave plenty of room to overflow on warm days and a play area for children and a newly constructed 9 hole crazy golf course keep everyone happy. The serving of decent food is clearly a priority and starters on the a la carte menu could include home smoked duck breast salad with a tangy raspberry dressing, pan fried salmon and red pepper fishcake with lime and crab dressing, or homemade chicken liver and foie gras pate.

Main courses follow a largely traditional pattern with roast rump of lamb, poached natural smoked haddock on a bed of buttered mash topped with a poached egg, or fillet of pork oven baked in puff pastry with a fresh garden herb and mushroom pate.

Amongst the puddings expect to find dark chocolate tart with Belgian white chocolate ice cream, meringue Pavlova topped with fresh strawberries and clotted cream, or lemon curd cheesecake with fresh strawberries and cream.

For two years out of three they have won the Wadworth Wine Pub of the Year which probably leaves as irrelevant any comment on the wine list.

REVIEWS OF The Sun in the Wood

Fay (31 May 2013)

A lovely venue, friendly, helpful, cheerful staff and better than just 'pub grub' for just a little bit more price wise. The menu has a good selection of foods and the play space is good for kids. There are nice indoor and outdoor dining areas and we '8' had a really good experience.

Leslie Webb (15 May 2013)

The Sun changed hands at the beginning of the year. We have visited several times and have been welcomed by the new licensees Darren and Maggie. The food is excellent and there is a good range of beers and wines. Looking forward to a return visit following the recent refurbishment. A proper pub with a good restaurant.
