The Cunning Man in Burghfield Bridge is a country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

Whether you are planning dinner with friends or Sunday lunch with family, book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.

The pub's name comes from a local legend of a 'cunning man' - a good wizard who would help to protect people from dark spirits and witches. The original building was destroyed following repeated flooding, however the newly re-built pub-restaurant has been impressively restored in its original style - complete with thatched roof.

There numerous attractive walks around our pub. From our attractive gardens there is an exit directly onto the Kennet and Avon Canal towpath where one can stroll and see the narrow boats passing by.

l Not busy at the time we went as it was during the week, had a fairly decent roast there and it?s a nice country style big pub. Good service and the prices weren?t bad either
