A riverside pub in the beautiful Berkshire countryside

The Dundas Arms is a traditional country pub in Kintbury, in the heart of rural Berkshire, nestled between the River Kennet and the Kennet and Avon canal.

Their eight beautifully-appointed bedrooms make for a luxurious country retreat, and their crowning jewel is their vast beer garden which offers al fresco dining in the summer and is the perfect spot for a garden party, outdoor wedding, or just relaxing in the sunshine with a few pints of Butcombe.

Although the exact origin of The Dundas Arms remains somewhat of a mystery, this Grade II listed Georgian inn has most likely been providing sustenance to hungry and thirsty travellers in the picturesque village of Kintbury since the end of the 18th century.

On the menu, it’s all about traditional pub food created with the finest seasonal and local produce, and the best Sunday roasts in the area.

Behind the bar, you’ll find a cracking range of cask ale and craft beer, plus local cider and a great wine selection.

The Dundas Arms’ passionate kitchen team is dedicated to producing well considered, seasonal menus, that make the most of the wonderful produce available from the surrounding rivers, farms and fields, and champion British provenance.

Their menus consist of dishes that showcase the best of the seasons, using locally grown organic vegetables, and responsibly sourced meat, fish and game, helping support local producers and ensure you enjoy a true taste of the countryside when you dine with them.

Sundays are important to them at The Dundas – their roasts are made with fresh field-to-fork ingredients and the finest local produce around, alongside delicious Bloody Marys, board games, and indulgent desserts.

The Dundas Arms is home to eight stunning ensuite bedrooms decorated in a gorgeous country house style with luxury white linens and well-appointed bathrooms, complete with vegan and environmentally friendly British bath and body products.

Five riverside ensuite rooms, each featuring a private terrace, allow you to sit with a cup of coffee and enjoy the canal’s array of wildlife.

Upstairs houses three more impressive double ensuite rooms, and one deluxe suite with free-standing rolltop tub.

Each of their lovely riverside rooms is dog-friendly.

There is a small extra charge of £15 per dog and they can provide dog beds and bowls on request.

Please enquire with theirteam on booking.
