One review of “The Baskerville”

    Ruth Hawkins

    26th September 2017

    I love a Sunday lunch, and the Sunday lunch at The Baskerville, in Shiplake, between Henley and Reading, is no exception.

    We had a really warm welcome from all of the staff at this family run and family friendly restaurant / gastro pub. The Sunday lunch menu had something for all palates, from soup to scallops to start, and from traditional roasts and fish and chips to swordfish for main courses as well as delicious desserts (all made from scratch in house). I had scallops to start, which were served with pancetta, black pudding, pea shoots and pea puree. They were done beautifully. My husband chose the caprese salad, which he polished off in the blink of an eye. Isobel, our daughter, also plumped for scallops and loved every bite.

    I am a big fan of pink beef and my roast dinner was done to perfection! If you prefer your meat cooked more thoroughly, or even less so, the brilliant chefs at The Baskerville will get it spot on for you. The roast dinner in its entirety was fantastic, with juicy vegetables, magnificent Yorkshire puddings and rich gravy. John went for fish and chips, served with crushed minted peas and homemade tartare sauce, and the chips were triple-cooked making them light and crispy. Isobel went for the smoked loin of pork, an interesting play on the standard roast dinner and it worked marvellously. The mains were huge hits all around.

    For dessert I had a fine peach tart which was light and delicious and John had a basil and rosemary parfait. The parfait was subtle and unique, and thoroughly enjoyed. The small person went for a large portion of New York cheesecake and was far, far from disappointed. We really enjoyed our lunch time visit, and will come back soon to try the other great options on the menu!
