Welcome to The Carnarvon Arms

Ruthie and her team would like to welcome you to The Carnarvon Arms, a former coaching inn which served travellers to-and-from Highclere Castle in the quaint hamlet of Whitway.  A glorious newly renovated country pub that envelops you in a traditional English setting, with roaring fires, wooden floors and traditional beams along with a glorious garden for cosy, autumnal evenings. Serving delicious seasonal dishes all day using only the best locally sourced ingredients and good old-fashioned hospitality. The Carnarvon Arms is the ideal place to relax, recharge and explore the beautiful surrounding area.

The Carnarvon Arms makes a great base for those wishing to indulge in country pursuits.  Located just minutes from the A34 and Newbury Train Station you won’t have trouble finding things to do nearby, with the famous Downton Abbey Highclere Castle on our doorstep, plus the Bombay Sapphire distillery and Newbury Racecourse just minutes away.

Dog Friendly

Life is always better with your dog! We’re huge dog lovers here at the Carnarvon and you’re four-legged friends are welcome in our bar area and hotel. With a doggy pit stop full of complimentary biscuits and water we are the mid-walk break for dogs and owners alike.

Our Local Area

With so much to do in our local area, including Highclere Castle the home of Downton Abbey, Newbury racecourse, Marwell Zoo and the Bombay Sapphire distillery, there won’t be a moment to be bored during your stay.
