Food & Drink

Good, fast, simple, casual food from great ingredients.

Our Chop House menu is based around everything good that we produce on our organic farm in Bishopstone.

From pork chops and ribs, to beef steaks and burgers, lamb loins and veal fillets. We combine that with organic fruit and veggies from Westmill, and milk and butter from our own cows at Berkeley Farm. It’s simple, fresh, nutritious and fun. Cooked and served by intelligent people, importantly.

All the meat (and bacon and sausages and ham) we use is from our own farm, Eastbrook, at Bishopstone, 8 miles from here. Organic since 1986.

The charcuterie is from Native Breeds near Gloucester, using Eastbrook raw materials. We use other local suppliers every time we can — veg grown by Pete Richardson at West Mill, Sevenhampton; he also collects our organic fruit; bread from Aston’s Bakehouse, near Lambourn; milk from Berkeley Farm, Wroughton — they use milk from Eastbrook’s cows; mozzarella and ice cream from Jody Scheckter’s buffaloes at Laverstoke, near Newbury.

Our dried goods, and tea, coffee etc. comes from Essential, a Bristol based Stalinist workers’ coop! Specialising in organic and Fairtrade goods.

Craft beers from wherever we can get them — wines from Vintage Roots at Reading.

Farm Safaris for livestock, landscapes and wildlife at Eastbrook Farm

We’re now combining  everything—the pigs, the cows and calves, the landscapes, the wildlife—deer, owls, badgers, flora and fauna generally, although not all of it appears on cue.  Our colleague James Andrews, expert at wildlife photography among other skills, will lead the ‘Safari’ tours, in the red land rover

Tackling the virus crisis ...

We have set up a farm shop at the Royal Oak in Bishopstone for groceries, organic meat and freshly prepared meals to take-away during the current restrictions on in-house dining. Please see our social media for updates and a full list of available produce. 

A lot of love out there for Corned Beef (without a key)

Delighted that our organic Corned Beef is being applauded across the land. 5* reviews with Abel and Cole and a Silver award at British Charcuterie Live!

Clive Hill's Eastbrook Inbetweeners

Clive gives us a twitchers update on all the comings and going on the farm.

"The rookeries in the ash trees around the farm have been active since late February/early March and the early-nesting rooks will now be sitting on eggs. For most of the other birds the lengthening days and increased hours of sunlight are the trigger to pair up and start breeding ...
