About
Description
Located just a few miles from Newbury town centre, next door to Highclere Castle, on the route of The Wayfarers Walk and close to many other attractions such as Newbury Race Course and the beautiful North More Wessex Downs, this cosy inn offers an ideal retreat for business travellers and leisure visitors alike. The Grade II listed building was built in the 1800s as a coaching inn providing a stop off for travellers to nearby Highclere Castle, home to the present Lord and Lady Carnarvon. It is now beautifully restored and renovated, offering a stunning dining room with a high vaulted ceiling, a thriving friendly bar and 19 stylish bedrooms. With the focus on high quality, locally sourced produce, our food menu offers a choice of modern British a la carte dishes, traditional pub classics and a mouth-watering array of bar snacks. The bedrooms offer home from home comforts such as comfy duvets, thick fluffy towels, luxury toiletries, flat screen TVs with Freeview and free wi-fi. Not to mention a hearty 1st class traditional English Breakfast. The inviting surroundings and great service provided by our very friendly team, make this the perfect choice for a romantic weekend away. The Carnarvon Arms is perfect for a glass of champagne with the girls, a pint at the bar or a relaxed yet impressive lunch or dinner. Its the perfect spot for a weekend break in the country, or for private dining, offers bespoke meals and accommodation for shoot parties, ideal wedding accommodation and simply the best Sunday roast for miles..
