Church Road, Pangbourne, RG8 7AR

Located in the village of Pangbourne on the River Thames, this 18th-Century tavern has recently been renovated into a tastefully modern restaurant; but its rustic roots have not been ignored. From a tantalising list of starters including goat's cheese, garlic and chilli king prawns, scallops with chorizo, and chicken liver pate, I chose the exquisitely tender smoked salmon with horseradish mayo, granary toast and lettuce. My wife began her meal with a delicious serving of garlic mushrooms on herb bruschetta, which was a prelude to tempura sea bass, a mouth-watering main course with a thin batter coating. For my main, I could have chosen confit of duck leg, pea and asparagus ravioli, pork chops, steak or the 6oz Aberdeen Angus burger, but eventually decided upon the king prawn curry. The plump, juicy prawns were bathed in a delicious balti sauce, and proved to be the highlight of the meal. We topped off our indulgences with a small selection of tasty treats from the sweet menu, tucking into a beautifully presented white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and a trio of creme brulee, crumble and chocolate brownie - a lovely end to the evening and excellent value for money, I might add. With generous portions, an extensive riverside patio and a heated gazebo and barbecue area, you're onto a winner at The Cross Keys.
