Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Standards, however, are no less exacting, maintaining the pub's reputation for exceptional food and service.
The Bridgewater Arms caters for all tastes and specialises in - well - everything. The menu has a broad range of choices, from nachos to curry, chilli con carne to lasagne. The wine list is similarly cosmopolitan - made up of a mixture of old and new world wines.
Even when tucking into Mediterranean roasted vegetables or Greek olives and feta cheese, it's impossible to forget that you're in an English country pub, surrounded by open fires and views of acres of National Trust land. Staying true to the setting, you can lunch on wild boar and apple sausages on a bed of beer malt mashed potato, or their fantastic venison Wellington. This pub is an absolute find for lovers of real ale, serving Greene King's finest with rotating guest ales. Devotees will also love the steak and Abbot Ale pie.
It's plain to see why the Bridgwater Arms won the Greene King Kitchen of Excellence Award 04/05, and with the sociable atmosphere and beautiful backdrop, its not just the food that makes a lasting impression.
