Babar at the Elephant Hotel in Pangbourne


An intimate drinking den



Low key dining

If you're dining with your pooch or fancy a more casual dining experience, our lovely Babar offers steak dining without the formalities.

We also have a great lunchtime menu, available from 12:00 – 14:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. From classic Ploughman's to meaty (and meat-free) burgers, there's something for everyone to enjoy. And Sunday Lunch is available in the bar, too, from 12:00 – 15:30. 

High key sippin'

Featuring more than 60 craft gins, delicious cocktails and a selection of beers and ales, the eclectic Babar is loved by guests and locals alike; it is the perfect spot for Sunday lunch, post-dining drinks or an informal dinner. From boozy to non-boozy tipples, we have a wonderful selection of beverages for you to choose from. Let us know your cocktail of choice and our talented bar team will shake, stir and serve. Your wish is our command.

Gin Flights

We’re a team of gin connoisseurs. Tell us what you like – or even what you’re having for supper – and we’ll recommend the perfect gin, tonic and garnish to challenge your taste buds.

We have a handpicked collection of over 60 gins is a lot to choose from, so for those times when one simply isn’t enough, we offer gin flights. A gin flight is a selection of three expertly chosen gins, served with a range of tonics and the ideal garnishes. Our gin tasting flights fuse the recognisable with the alternative, taking your taste buds on a naughty-but-nice botanical voyage.
