Park Street, Hungerford, RG17 0ED

The Downgate is every bit the quintessential British country pub. Set on the edge of Port Down Common, The Downgate’s decor is sympathetic to its stunning setting, retaining handsome original features and pairing these with a light and airy feel that ensures diners feel at home from the moment they arrive. The pub’s lush natural surrounds create a relaxed backdrop and owner Lauren Weir and partner Dennis Andersson have taken plenty of cues from this, establishing an easy-going and unpretentious atmosphere where everyone is made to feel welcome – especially friends of the four-legged variety.

Daytime visitors can expect to tuck into light bites and hearty lunches such as generously filled sandwiches, fish and chips, and the Downgate beefburger. Evening menus mean traditional British dishes prepared with care. The pub’s seasonal fare consistently leaves smiles on faces thanks to carefully sourced quality produce and skilful execution. Think beef stew with warm French stick and butter, and smoked haddock with poached egg, new potatoes, wilted spinach and Hollandaise sauce. The Downgate’s stellar Sunday roast is a surefire way to please the whole family and the range of on-tap tipples available is certain to impress ale aficionados. Supplied by Arkell’s, the breadth and quality of real ales available has earned The Downgate a feature in both the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and the Real Ale Guide, as well as Cask Marque accreditation.
