Square Meal Review of The Museum Inn ?

Standing out among Farnham’s myriad thatched cottages, this tall redbrick inn was built by pioneering archaeologist Augustus Pitt-Rivers, who also set up a museum nearby to house his extraordinary collections. The museum itself is now in Oxford, but the inn remains. Cosy alcoves, flagstone floors and mismatched furniture set the tone in the bar, while foodie action centres on a family-friendly, timber-panelled room lovingly referred to as ‘the shed’. The menu mixes pub classics with restaurant-style dishes – so expect anything from Caesar salad, burgers and chicken Kiev to steak tartare, Provençal-style lamb rump with baby potatoes and basil, roast duck leg ‘en cassoulet’ and daily fish specials. As well as taking rooms at the inn, visitors can also rent the neighbouring Moles Cottage as a summer hideaway or self-contained wintertime shooting lodge – country comforts are guaranteed.
