“A great country retreat” – this “wonderfully well-run” thatched pub is older sibling to the Hart Street Tavern and the work of Harwood Arms alumni Alex Sergeant & David Holloway. Kudos, too, for their new, shed-like Burger Barn, serving patties, hotdogs and rosemary fries “with views of the fields and some new letting rooms”. (“Expect it to be rammed with Henley's glitterati on a sunny summer evening.”)

A “lovely” thatched pub serving a “short but excellent menu” of food “up to the standards of a London restaurant” – owners Alex Sergeant and David Holloway, graduates of stellar Fulham gastroboozer the Harwood Arms, have put their know-how to excellent effect in south Oxfordshire. “It manages to retain the atmosphere of a village pub while offering very high-quality dining”“locals still use it for a drink”. Two years down the track, the pair have opened their second venue, Hart Street Tavern, in nearby Henley-on-Thames. Top Tip – “wonderful garden serving great pizzas from a huge pizza oven and drinks from a horsebox”.

“Meals start with amazing bread and continue on from there” at “the latest incarnation of this slightly out-of-the-way pub near Henley” – relaunched last year by Alex Sergeant & David Holliday who “have certainly brought the standards of the Harwood Arms [London’s No. 1 Pub in the Harden’s survey] to South Oxfordshire”. “Each dish is carefully presented with rich flavours and many lovely sauces”, and the selection includes “melting venison from just around the corner”. “The dining extension is very nice but still new” and “the whitewash and high ceilings can make it feel a tad sterile, but as the place fills up it becomes relaxed with the chatter of happy diners”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
