Review on The Greene Oak
A top-class refurb of a has-been country boozer, the Greene Oak was named after its location - a clearing in Windsor Forest that marks the site of an ancient Saxon battlefield. Oakley Green is a lovely rural oasis midway between the culinary hotspots of Windsor and Bray, and this venue clearly has big aspirations. Contemporary interiors are welcoming with a rustic style, chunky wooden tables and upholstered chairs are set on slate flooring.
Top-class seasonal ingredients are used to telling effect, together with an excellent wine list, local ales and well-crafted cocktails. A good place to start is with the smoked pilchard and new potato timbale served with apple, caper and Keta caviar dressing or maybe the pork and apricot terrine, piccalilli purée, and toasted bloomer. When it comes to main courses, there's much to enjoy, witness roast guinea fowl breast with salt baked celeriac, charred shallot, turnip purée and parmentier potatoes or from the sea there's pan roasted Cornish plaice fillets, confit potato, courgette and tomato fondue and lie de vin. To finish there's desserts in the shape of chocolate fondant paired with mint ice cream and mint syrup, or you might prefer to opt for the The Greene Oak cheeseboard consisting of three cheeses, grapes, pear chutney and biscuits.
During summer months guests can soak up the sun in their lovely peaceful garden.
