Playhatch, Reading, RG4 9QN

The image of a picturesque English hamlet – much like Playhatch – isn’t complete without an historic, beautifully kept watering hole for villagers to gravitate towards. Cue The Crown – a 16th-century inn with all the hallmarks of its era. It’s easy to feel relaxed and at home in front of the open fireplace amid The Crown’s interior of cosy corners, exposed wood and brickwork, and comfortable furnishings, which goes some way towards explaining its success.

A pub for all seasons serving fare to match, visitors flock to The Crown to enjoy a drink and a meal beside the fire in winter just as readily as they do to relax with a pint in the garden during the fairer months. Start your meal with the gorgeously gooey baked Camembert with red onion marmalade, ciabatta, rosemary, garlic and honey; it’s perfect for sharing. For mains, the lamb rump comes highlyrecommended, served with an impressive goat’s cheese soufflé, baba ganoush and rosemary jus. The pan-fried sea bream with asparagus risotto is equally popular, served with roasted cherry tomatoes and finished with a drizzle of herb oil. Finally, round off your meal with one of the spectacular desserts.

With a barn that can be hired for private functions and stunning letting rooms completing an already desirable picture, it’s no wonder The Crown is one of the area’s go-to hotspots.
