SquareMeal Review of 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, delivering “great food and great customer service” to an appreciative crowd. Cosy alcoves, flagstone floors and mismatched furniture set the tone in the bar, while foodie action centres on a family-friendly, timber-panelled room. The menu mixes pub classics with restaurant-style dishes – so expect anything from ploughman’s, burgers and beer-battered haddock to rose veal carpaccio with salsa verde, honey-glazed duck breast with seared duck liver, greens and roasted Jersey royals, slow-roast pork belly with champ and daily fish specials. To conclude, try tarte Tatin with iced apple parfait or some locally sourced cheeses served with Dorset honey. As well as taking rooms at the inn, visitors can also rent the neighbouring Mole’s Cottage – country comforts are guaranteed. As a local, The Museum is “just superb”, exclaims one fan.
