A gorgeous country pub in a historical location

Your hosts, are Gemma & Shaun, at the all-new Carpenters Arms.

With plenty of character and really friendly, cheerful staff, The Carpenter's Arms has a good mix of both locals and visitors.

It is comfortable and understated with stools, lots of tables and a roaring log fire in wintertime.

- half a mile from Newbury bypass
- close to Newbury racecourse & Highclere Castle
- accommodation rooms
- homecooked pub food & Sunday lunch
- dog friendly
- totally refurbished in 2018

And pubs don't come in settings much better than that of The Carpenters Arms, Burghclere, either, which overlooks Watership Down, the inspiration for the famous story and film.


At The Carpenter's Arms, they're passionate about offering good, honest pub food 7-days-a-week using fresh, seasonal ingredients.

The chef works closely with trusted local suppliers to bring a wide selection of ever-changing light bites, pub classics and seasonal dishes - and a great Sunday Lunch, with a choice of three meats, all the trimmings plus a vegetarian choice!
