“The closest inn to Highclere Castle, The Yew Tree is a firm favourite amongst families and couples making a break from London for the weekend. Stylish rooms and interiors feature tartan prints, reclaimed furnishings and novel lighting. Perfectly executed pub grub is the focus of the menu. Tuck in.”

Hotel Review

Within hailing distance of Highclere Castle, near Watership Down and Beacon Hill, The Yew Tree is a classic countryside Inn which continues a long tradition of top quality cuisine (with an emphasis on seafood and fresh local produce) and charming accommodation. Each of the eight bedrooms is contemporary yet classic country chic (designed for townies visiting for the weekend), featuring low beams, tartan rugs and William Morris wallpaper. Charming design quirks, such as old tea boxes for bedside tables, demonstrate the attention to detail that has gone into this property. Bathrooms have invigorating rain showers, fluffy towels and bath robes. At the back of the Inn, al fresco dining is available in the warmer months and you can choose your own (luckily you don't have to catch it) fish supper from the seafood display counter. Indoors, candle-lit dinners in front of a roaring log fire are more the thing! For a shooting or celebratory party, there is a private dining room for up to eight people. A great little property for a weekend away and local exploring.
