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 whole-baked Camembert, smoked almonds and Hendred honey, or pork and black pudding Scotch egg with apple and spring onion slaw, and basil aioli.
Showcasing Maria’s passion for fresh, local produce and world food, sumptuous mains include: slow-cooked duck Panang curry with jasmine rice and a salad of carrot, orange, chilli and coriander topped with crispy garlic, and superfood salad with chicken yakitori, roasted squash and pickled kohlrabi. If you prefer something more classic, perhaps you’ll opt for The Arms Burger comprising beef and chorizo, pickled courgette, melted Emmental cheese, chips, and tomato and rocket salad, 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.
