Local Food and Brew - The Elephant

on 18 November 2016.

It is a growing trend among restaurants to source locally for their produce but few do it better or with more commitment than the Elephant at Pangbourne. Manager Dale Winrow believes passionately that buying local not only ensures the freshness and quality of their meat and produce but vitally, 'Really makes it a community thing, supporting the people who support us.' This is not just a cosy, feeling good philosophy, it makes good business sense; if you are a food producer who gets good income from supplying a local restaurant, you are more likely to take your family to that same restaurant for a meal.

Fortunately, in West Berkshire, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to small businesses who strive to produce high quality, sustainable and locally sourced goods. When you dine at the Elephant you will do so in the knowledge that most of what appears on your plate will have come from within a ten mile radius. And that applies to drink too. The Elephant prides itself on its microbrews and local ales - again, something West Berkshire does very well.
