We are just four miles from the market town of Newbury. Hungerford and its plethora of antiquities is just five miles away and the beautiful town of Marlborough is a further eight miles to the west.

To this day, the pub sits near the heart of The Valley of The Racehorse and nestled neatly between Lambourn and Newbury. So, it is with no surprise that our logo and brand reflects that of a horse.

Please see below, just a number of the attractions in the local area.
