The Elm Tree lies at the heart of the picturesque village of Beech Hill and is frequented by locals and passersby alike, all of whom come for the outstanding views, well-kept real ale and exciting food. With a varied and interesting menu that draws influence from around the globe, The Elm Tree caters to many tastes while also staying true to its British roots.

Old favourites such as the signature Elm Tree pie of the day sit alongside more diverse options like duck breast served with Dauphinoise potatoes, braised red cabbage and red wine jus, and pork belly served with creamy leeks & pancetta, wholegrain mustard mash and apple purée. The team at The Elm Tree delights with accomplished, hearty fare. This is most evident on Sunday, when diners flock to this charming gastropub for some of the finest roasts in Berkshire.

Starters and desserts are equally good. Begin your meal with the locally renowned chicken liver parfait or spicy panko Brie with Port reduction, and opt to finish with sticky toffee pudding or the fig and honey frangipane tart. For a midday meal, plump for the daily catch fishcake, or perhaps the brie, apple & walnut salad served with roasted onion bread croutons & a lemon dressing.

The wine list complements the cuisine, with everything from classics from the Old World such as Chablis and Saint-Émilion Grand Cru, to the New World’s excellent pinot noirs and sauvignon blancs.

The decking area offers fantastic views best enjoyed with a cold pint and barbecue fare in the summer. In the winter the cosy atmosphere afforded by the three open fires offers welcome respite from the cold. The pub also caters for parties of all sizes. The Elm Tree offers traditional, homemade food in pleasant surroundings come rain or shine.
