A place of pilgrimage for foodies - try home-reared lamb, rabbit terrine, home-grown veg and honey from the hives. Spill into the big garden

We love the ‘Welly’ because their commitment to local sourcing raises the bar for all and has made it a place of pilgrimage for foodies. Try home-reared lamb, rabbit terrine, home-grown veg and honey from the hives. Boards are chalked up daily and the produce mainly home-grown or organic. Indoors is cosy and relaxed, outside is the pub's smallholding: seven little pigs, nine woolly sheep, a few bees and almost 100 assorted hens. The newly extended bar-dining room fills quickly, so make sure you book to sample Jason's inventive modern cooking. Kick off with home-grown courgette flowers stuffed with ricotta, parmesan and lemon zest, follow with rack of home-reared lamb with root vegetable mash and crab apple jelly, then finish with elderflower jelly, strawberry and raspberry sorbet. Migrate to the big garden for summer meals.

Jason King & Simon Page:

  • Silchester Roman Wall. Maintained by English Heritage, this is a wonderful place to walk around the perimeter of the Roman town, following the ancient walls. Do look our for the amphitheatre - it is quite amazing.
  • The Vyne, National Trust. An intimate family home with beautiful gardens and ancient woodlands to explore.
  • Highclere Castle, home of Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, most recently the setting of Downton Abbey is 20 minutes away. Tickets must be bought is advance as it is a very popular destination.
  • Sandham Memorial Chapel, National Trust. A modest red brick building housing an epic series of large scale murals, by the acclaimed war artist Sir Stanley Spencer.
  • Bombay Sapphire. Take a tour of the distillery near Overton, learn about gin botanicals, or maybe book a mixology masterclass.
  • Whitchurch Silk Mill is the oldest silk mill in the UK still in its original building. A gem of industrial heritage, the Georgian water mill still weaves silk using 19th century machinery.
