The Bacon Arms, Newbury

The Bacon Arms, 10 Oxford Street, Newbury, offers accommodation and beers from Marston’s breweries. It is a Grade II listed 18th century coaching inn, which may have 17th century origins. It is named after the Bacon family who were based at Elcot Park in Kintbury.

Ian MacQuire is the new Landlord at The Bacon Arms. Ian has previously run The George and Horn at Kingsclere. Prior to becoming a Publican he served for 10 years in the Army.

A special interest of Ian’s is matching beer with chocolate. Perhaps West Berkshire CAMRA should investigate getting Ian involved with this for a themed social event at the pub?!

The kitchen at the Bacon Arms has reopened, including serving roasts on a Sunday. Special offer nights are Curry night (Wednesday) and Grill night (Thursday). For meal details visit the Menus page on the pub’s website.

The pub is usually open daily from 12 noon.

Live music returns with Gary Myles on New Years Eve 2021 and there will be a Jazz Night on 22 January 2022. A Comedy Night is planned for 21 January 2022. The pub is looking for someone to host Quiz Nights and anyone interested should contact Ian directly.

The exterior of the pub has changed over the years as shown in the photo below, from several years ago.
