British, Traditional Restaurants in Oxfordshire
1. Orwells British, Traditional restaurant in Shiplake Shiplake Row - RG9
“Love it, love it, love it!” is the universal theme in all feedback on Ryan & Liam Simpson-Trotman’s gentrified pub, a short drive out of Henley, where, in summer, you can “eat the beautiful garden with views of the countryside”. Service is “professional” and the well-judged cooking – “innovative” without being unduly ‘cheffy’ – is “exceptional”. Michelin continue to miss a trick here.
2. Magnolia Brasserie British, Modern restaurant in Faringdon Sudbury House Hotel, 56 London Street - SN7
A relaxed atmosphere boasting a brand new feature kitchen and wood burning stove creating an exciting theatre watching the talented Chef’s preparing your meal in front of your very eyes.Menus are available from breakfast through to dinner, including afternoon tea ...
3. The Miller of Mansfield British, Traditional restaurant in Goring-on-Thames High St - RG8
“What a treat” – reporters (and the odd local celeb) “absolutely adore” former Heston staffers Nick & Mary Galer’s 18th-century inn; there are shout-outs for the “cosy” fire-lit ambiance, but it’s the “exceptional” food which stands apart, be it superior breakfasts, “lovely puds” or “unusual” libations (think Cornish pastis).
4. The Perch British, Traditional restaurant in Oxford Binsey Ln - OX2
This famous thatched pub by Port Meadow, where the countryside encroaches into Oxford, is “lovely on a summer’s day for a meal outdoors” – and “highly recommended after a walk along the Thames if you’re staying in Oxford”. There has been a pub here for 800 years and the current building has hosted real and imaginary drinkers including Inspector Morse, C.S.Lewis and William Morris. Landlord Jon Ellse is from Oxford pub royalty – his father ran the Turf Tavern.
5. The Chequers British, Traditional restaurant in Burcot Abingdon Road - OX14
Steven Sanderson’s “welcoming” modernised thatched pub in a Thames-side village majors in grass-fed British steak from Sussex, alongside a variety of pub classics.
6. The Swan Inn British, Traditional restaurant in Ascott-under-Wychwood 4 Shipton Road - OX7
The co-founders of group that owns The Chequers in the Cotswolds and The Talbot in North Yorkshire have added another historic venue to their collection – a 16th century inn, complete with a 100-cover dining room and seven guest bedrooms. No survey feedback as yet, but press reviews are very upbeat.
