For many years, The Eyston Arms has been delighting the friendly folk of the historic village of East Hendred and its visitors with sophisticated pub food, fantastic, personal service and an extensive wine list in a setting that oozes tradition. A huge log fire makes this the perfect winter hideout, while a spacious courtyard is an ideal place to enjoy al fresco dining in warmer months.
Talented and well-respected chef Maria Jaremchuk is known for her regularly changing menu of beautifully presented fare that showcases local ingredients and draws inspiration from all over the world. For a classic starter, plump for chilli, salt and pepper squid with lime aioli, or rillettes of confit duck with homemade chutney, toast and cornichons. Showcasing Maria’s passion for fresh, local produce and world food, sumptuous mains include maple-glazed Tomahawk pork chop with black bean and chorizo stew and chilli greens, and the delicious roast pavé of venison served with pommes Anna, celeriac and carrot purée, buttered greens and peas and blackberry jus.
If you prefer something more classic, perhaps you’ll opt for The Arms Burger comprising beef and venison, topped with plum chutney, melted Cheddar and celeriac remoulade, and served with shoestring chips, or something from Maria’s specials blackboard. The dessert menu is a delight to behold; you’re sure to leave with a smile on your face.
