Based in an area of outstanding natural beauty, The Pot Kiln is widely regarded as one of the best pubs in the country, let alone the Reading area. This country pub and game restaurant is run by Mike Robinson who also owns London’s Michelin-starred Harwood Arms.
Naturally game is focus of the menu, with local free-range, organic and humanely reared wild game available – no surprise considering the restaurant has its own deer park, which just so happens to provide beautiful views over the Berkshire downs.
I used to come to this pub a lot as a teenager, and have fond memories of the outdoor stone baked pizza nights which still happen, weather permitting. It’s easy to spend an entire day here enjoying drinks, food and the views, and you'll never feel like you’ve outstayed your welcome.
