A bit about us

The Pointer

The Pointer is a multi-award-winning country pub with rooms. You’ll find us next to the green and All Saint’s Church in the pretty Buckinghamshire village of Brill. We’re just a short amble from the famous windmill on the hill, with breath-taking views and endless country walks right on our doorstep.

We’re proud to offer our guests a relaxed dining experience and an ever-evolving menu, driven by what seasonal produce is available to us in our kitchen garden and the neighbouring fields of the Chilton Estate.

There’s ample parking and we have a beautiful, enclosed beer garden.


Join us for a drink in our comfortable front bar where patrons can while away an hour of two in the company of some excellent beverages, open fires, and chairs. Our wine list champions small producers and family-run vineyards, and we serve an excellent range of local ales including our very own Pointer Pint. Our gin list is extensive and boasts world classics alongside English artisanal brands, while our inventive bar manager also concocts a range of spirits in-house using foraged ingredients for a truly seasonal cocktail list.

Our Farm & Kitchen Garden 

We’re passionate about sustainability and we work in close collaboration with neighbouring farmers, gardeners and foragers to serve stunning food that celebrates the very best of the bounty right on our doorstep. Whatever is not grown in our kitchen garden in Ludgershall or reared in the fields and farms of the nearby Chilton Estate is carefully sourced from artisan producers and the finest fishmongers who share our commitment to quality and ethical production.

Our Butchers

Pop next door and visit our Butcher’s shop for a varied and seasonal range of meats reared to a consistently high standard. The shop also sells charcuterie and freshly baked bread and pastries as well as a variety of condiments, pies, snacks and kitchen cupboard staples – all sourced from local suppliers and artisanal producers.


A spectacular night’s sleep awaits you just a hop and skip across the road from our pub should you wish to make a night of it. The quality and comfort of our beautifully-appointed bedrooms won us the Sunday Times Hotel of the Year award, and well-behaved dogs are welcome in our rooms as well as our friendly bar area.
