Set in the heart of Berkshire countryside, The Crab & Boar is a lovely country pub with rooms offering British cuisine, free Wi-Fi and a large car park.

The award-winning restaurant serves locally-sourced seafood and seasonal game in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
With an easy access to the M4 motorway, The Crab & Boar is located 25 minute drive away from historic Oxford, 16 minutes from Newbury Racecourse and 19 minutes from Highclere castle.

The Crab and Boar is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"Set in the heart of Berkshire countryside, The Crab & Boar is a cosy 14-room country pub with a thatched roof, beds in the eaves, wood-panelled public rooms, a log-burning stove plus a few four-poster beds and even al fresco hot tubs for some lucky guests.
In this idyllic rural setting, with fields rolling in all directions, it may seem a shame to go Cold New Year Turkey especially when there is such a fine selection of local ales, Sipsmith artisanal gin and Nyetimber, Britain’s answer to the Champagne question. But that is not what the Crab and Boar is proposing. Instead of Dry January, this pub has adopted Try January, a recent British landlord phenomenon that proposes that a change is a good as a rest. So when you go to stay the weekend at the Crab and Boar, instead of being offered carrot juice and spelt you’ll be encouraged to change your tox to something alcoholic you haven’t tried before, instead of detoxing completely.
It makes a lot of sense to me."
