Square Meal Review of The Wellington Arms ?

‘Picture postcard’ may be a cliché, but this cottagey little pub is the image of a country idyll, and it comes with impressive self-sufficient cred – note the fruit trees, vegetable beds, chickens and beehives in the garden.

  1. Each September we've started a bit of a tradition in getting out of London, heading to Hampshire and going to the Newbury show - a proper country folk knees up! The past two years we have decided to make a whole weekend of it and stay at the wonderful Wellington Arms in Baughurst - a beautiful country pub serving excelling food and houses three beautifully furnished rooms. It has now become one of my favourite places to go, it's just bliss. The pub has a small, self sufficient farm which they use throughout their dishes.
