Escape the city for some peace and quiet

One of the best things about The Crab and Boar is its location – there’s nothing within proximity of it! Just lush green fields. A calming quiet. And a night sky that’s dotted with crystal clear stars. An ideal escape, especially when you want to get away from the people and the pollution (noise and air) that’s the norm back home in London (or any other major city).

Located in Newbury, a 10 minute drive from the station, The Crab and Boar is a welcoming home for the night with rustic charm and frienly staff. It’s bright and airy, with outdoor space by the fountain for you to relax with a paper or book, and spacious, clean rooms with views that allow you to absorb your surroundings, take it all in and let that stress just drift away.

Being a countryside inn means you can expect good, wholesome food. Like a British asparagus starter with poached British eggs. Perfect crunch from the former and perfect ooze from the latter. Follow this with a juicy, well-cooked steak for dinner, and round it off with a dessert such as the palette-cleansing pavlova. There’s a strong wine list available, too. Don’t be afraid to ask for a recommendation because the staff are only too happy to oblige.

The best thing is the gorgeous night’s sleep that awaits. A large comfortable bed with pillows that cradle your head softly will have you asleep in no time. And as noted above, the location is perfect in lending to such a blissful night’s rest, always much needed.
