The John O’Gaunt Free House and Brewpub is a listed 16th century building which has been sympathetically restored, keeping many original features. It is steeped in charm and situated in the heart of the historic town of Hungerford.
As a free house they pride themselves on our constantly changing selection of at least six real ales, many of them from local breweries and some brewed by us in our microbrewery here at the pub.
They also stock selection of at least four draft real ciders, including offerings from some of our local cider makers.
For those looking for more variety they have an array of other beers. In the bottled range they have, over 35 bottled beers from Belgium each with their own glass, more than 25 bottled, award winning craft ales from around the world, award winning Kenyan Tusker lager and a range of bottled beers from local breweries. On draught they always have Leffe Blond, and an ever changing selection from the likes of BrewDog, La Chouffe, Meantime, Camden and Siren Craft Ales.
Their food is seasonal, locally sourced, cooked with skill and passion, have a look at the sample menus page.
As part of the INNformal Pub Co. and Brewery they are forging the way in bringing back the core values of traditional pubs, serving great, sometimes unusual, often amazing ales, ciders and beers with a welcoming smile and a friendly informed chat, with some lovely food offerings, they are many people’s idea of the perfect pub.
