The Stag & Huntsman
There are a few villages in the United Kingdom that can lay claim to the natural beauty of Hambleden - listed in 2013 as one of The Times' '30 Best Villages in Britain'. Nestled into the Chiltern Hills, between Henley and Marlow and just up from the River Thames, Hambleden can only be described as quintessentially English. Benefiting from the care of the Culden Faw Estate and the protection of The National Trust, the village is one that time forgot, with few changes over the last century.
The Stag & Huntsman, lovingly restored by The Estate under the auspices of heritage architecture, Ptolemy Dean, maintains the old world charm of a village pub. With a focus towards the local community - Hambleden and the local residents - myriad of small and cosy drinking and eating spaces within the pub, the nine letting bedrooms and the pretty garden also provide a resting place and watering hole for those who travel further distances to the village.
The refurbishment of this historic pub has maintained the old fashioned charm, while bringing greater comforts to those staying or coming to eat with us. The Public Bar maintains its 'local' charm with a wide and varied selection of local ales. The menu is one of pub favourites with a strong emphasis on local Estate produce and with a large variety of game, when in season.
