THE BLACKBIRD, Bagnor a very small cosy family run pub (no table larger than 10) for a really delicious a la carte, children and dogs welcome.  As it is so tiny we highly recommend booking.  Follow signs from Newbury to The Watermill Theatre, and it is on your right.

To top it off there are 11 stylish bedrooms to crash in if the journey is too much.  Just off Junction 14, M4, 5 mins from Welford Park.            Booking essential.    01488 648 284

ALL products may contain traces of :

Nuts  Peanuts   Egg   Milk   Mustard   Celery and other allergens.  We go to alot of trouble to research all allergen content in our food , so please do enquire when placing your lunch order.

Gluten free bread is sometimes available upon request at an extra charge as it is SO  expensive to buy.

Our gluten free bread may contain mild traces of gluten as we do not have a gluten free kitchen.  But we do serve it in its individual wrapping that it arrived here in !

The Welford Food Policy:

1. We pride ourselves on using only homemade or locally sourced produce in our tearooms.

2. The pork sausages are sourced from Welford Farms where we have a small holding of free range pigs to ensure the meat we serve is healthy and nutritious.    We sell our Pork Products in the gift shop and online.

3. Our food is professionally prepared to the highest standards.

4.  Our very young table wipers are children of the waitresses etc .   We have very strict age related policies as to what tasks are suitable, and whole local families are able to get involved. We hope that by employing so many young from our surrounding villages we are giving them the life skills and experience needed for future employment.  

 5. Our staff are trained carefully by us, and anyone involved in actually handling and cooking the food  holds a current Food Hygiene Level 2 certificate. All staff are expected to smile, serve and look after our valued customers to the best of their abilities.

6. Our tearooms consist of the main inside building with two seating areas which lead into our famous gift shop and a heated tent outside. Our heated tent serves the same menu, offering  a dog and pushchair friendly zone . We take the issue of allergies seriously, but we are not even pretending to be a professional restaurant and do not have the resources to be one.  This is NOT a NUT free or GLUTEN FREE kitchen.  

7.  We have just been awarded 5 stars from the Environmental Health & Licensing Department at West Berkshire Council.

We hope you have a lovely day with us.
