Oxford Street Kitchen & Bar
Situated in the heart of Newbury is Oxford Street Kitchen & Bar, Chequers Hotel’s impressive restaurant. An elegant yet tranquil space is created by the combination of blue, gold and cream walls, patterned seating, dark wooden tables and hanging lights. After being shown to your table by the friendly and attentive staff, take your time to pore over the extensive menu. Opt for some nibbles to keep you entertained while you decided on your mains – perhaps breads, olives or the moreish pork scratchings with apple sauce.
Tempting starters include the likes of caulifl ower velouté, smoked haddock and pea croquette and stuffed saffron arancini. You might follow with a highly recommended dish such as wild mushroom linguine served with a confit egg yolk, or the venison loin with caramelised parsnip purée, braised red cabbage, charred sprouts and potato puffs. Both are rich and indulgent – the perfect plates for those cooler months. Save room for dessert, where mango and coconut soufflé, chocolate fondant and amaretto brûlée are just a few of the sublime puddings on the menu. There’s also a bar in which guests are invited to enjoy fine wine, ale, spirits and stunning cocktails. A warm welcome, beautiful food, excellent service and a stellar drinks selection awaits at Oxford Street Kitchen & Bar.
