Review on Queen's Arms Hotel
The Queen's Arms Hotel is set in the picturesque village of East Garston in the heart of the beautiful Lambourn Valley, known for its horse training heritage and country pursuits such as fly-fishing, shooting and stalking. This is part of the Miller's Collection of Country Inns, following on from the successful Peat Spade in Longstock and the Anchor Inn at Lower Froyle. Lucy Townsend has teamed up with former Hotel du Vin chef Matt Green-Armytage for this latest venture, where they have completely refurbished the lovely 18th century building. The atmospheric dining room is welcoming with its wooden tables, mismatched chairs, some with colourful tartan throws on their backs, walls are adorned with sporting photos, and various lamps dotted around the room set the cosy picture.
Local seasonal ingredients are an important element in the dishes and game is purchased from local shoots, while poultry and meat comes from farmers in the area. To start you might go for chicken liver and foie gras parfait red onion marmalade, toast or six Maldon oysters, sweet and sour red wine onions., while mains take in braised pigs cheeks, white pudding mash and scrumpy sauce or whole lemon sole, caper berries, anchovies and parley. Old favourites round things off with Queen of puddings or an organic apple pie and custard. There is a very interesting well priced list that has been compiled by Vincent Gasnier. Eight luxurious bedrooms are available if you want to stay over.
