July 4th, COVID 19 and all that...
Please remember that you must book a table to join us for a delicious
meal or even a drink. This will allow us to control numbers in the pub and garden and ensure the safety of staff and customers.
We will be running on a very reduced capacity in order to preserve social distancing and we are working very hard to make it as pleasant and normal an experience as possible, but please remember to book a table, no exceptions.
We look forward to welcoming you back, in a safe and responsible way.

A family owned Free House and Brewpub, The John O'Gaunt 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. We have a achieved a trip advisor certificate of excellence every year for the last 5
years, putting us in the top 1% of pubs and restaurants in the country.
With the addition of our purpose built Tiki Bar in 2019 in our beautiful award winning garden, we provide a great offering with a chilled 'Ibiza Vibe' with great cocktails, draught craft ales and eclectic lagers, and our full menu can be served in the garden, in a perfect oasis tucked away from the hussle and bussle of Hungerford.
As a free house we pride ourselves on our constantly changing selection of at least eight real ales, many of them from local breweries and some brewed by us in our own brewery here in Hungerford.
We also stock a great selection of at least ten draft real ciders, including offerings from some of our local cider makers such as Tutts Clump.
For those looking for more variety we have an array of other beers. In our bottled range we have over 35 bottled beers from Belgium, each with their own glass, award winning craft ales from around the world, award winning Kenyan Tusker lager and a range of bottled beers from local breweries. On keg we often have Leffe Blond, BrewDog, La Chouffe and a selection of craft kegs from many other selected breweries that we like.
We are very proud of our food, and our local credentials, sourcing from local farms, local suppliers, our own beef reared on Hungerford Common, sustainable seafood, and locally grown produce.
As part of the INNformal Pub Co. and Brewery we 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, we are many people's idea of the perfect pub.
If you dont believe us...
Duck Duck Duck!!! Mmmmmmm. Totally amazing dish with blackberries and caramelized onion. And an awsome salad with goats cheese, figs, pinenuts etc. No, but really, this is the best gastropub food in Berkshire let alone the Southwest! You have to taste it to believe it!
Friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Lovely food, some of the best around and plenty of choice. Good selection of ales and a Belgian Beer and gin menu too.
Completely fabulous visit with my Mum for lunch.
Friendly service, reasonable prices, generous portions and amazing tasting and quality food.
We only nipped in for a quick sandwich and a drink but it was so good I felt compelled to write this review.
