Dew Pond

Old Burghclere, Kingsclere, Hampshire, RG20 9LH
Find this good restaurant, complete with dewpond in a pair of 16th century cottages at the foot of Watership Down. The old oak beams and open fires make his a romantic destination – and enjoying a pre-prandial drink in one of their comfortable sitting rooms or on the terrace adds to the enjoyment.

Chef/proprietor Keith Marshall, uses plenty of local produce and game is much to the fore during darker months.

Starters such as ‘Terrine of Ham Hock and Foie Gras with Toasted Brioche and Spiced Apple Chutney’; ‘Brixham Crab Salad with Avocado and Tomato and Herb Mayonnaise’ and ‘Wild Mushroom Risotto, Wild Rocket and Parmesan Wafer’ set the style.

Maybe to be followed by ‘Roasted Fillet of Turbot with Tempura Prawns, Asparagus, Mousseline Potatoes and Vermouth Sauce’; ‘Fillet of Beef with Morels, Confit Shallots, Wilted Spinach, Fondant Potato and Madeira Sauce’ or ‘Tower of Mediterranean Vegetables with Goats Cheese, Basil and Tomato Juices.

Desserts maintain the high standard, with the likes of ‘Prune and Armagnac Crème Brulée with Tuile Biscuits’ and ‘Dark Chocolate Fondant, Griottine Cherries and Honeycomb Ice Cream’; or for the more savoury-toothed their selection of local cheeses.

Friendly, professional service.
