British, Traditional Restaurants in Oxfordshire
1. Orwells British, Traditional restaurant in Shiplake Shiplake Row - RG9
Ryan Simpson and Liam Trotman’s smartly converted old pub – “beautifully situated” in the woods between Reading and Henley – has “grown in stature since it opened” a couple of years ago “and has not rested on its laurels”. One or two reporters accuse it of “trying too hard”, but the overwhelming picture is of “superb cooking matched by the quirky and superb selection of wines available from their Coravin”. “Surely Michelin must give it a star soon – it’s already a cut above many who have that honour!”
2. The Perch British, Traditional restaurant in Oxford Binsey Ln - OX2
Claiming to be ‘as old as the university’, this thatched 17th-century building, a short stroll across Port Meadow from the city-centre has a “delightful” garden on the river, and was “nicely renovated” when experienced local licensee Jon Ellse took it over a few years ago. The ‘gastropub grub’ is “certainly not shabby” although quite “old skool”.
3. 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...
4. The Miller of Mansfield British, Traditional restaurant in Goring-On-Thames High St - RG8
Elevated gastropub cuisine with a “unique twist” is on the menu at former Heston Blumenthal staffers Nick & Mary Galer’s modernised 18th-century inn. The kitchen’s “extraordinary attention to detail” delivers some “memorable” dishes (e.g. “a glorious clementine soup with candied citrus”).
5. The Chequers British, Traditional restaurant in Burcot Abingdon Road - OX14
“Roaring fires, good food and great atmosphere” – that’s the straightforward appeal of Steven Sanderson’s modernised thatched pub, in a cute Thames-side village. There’s quite a wide menu, but the focus is on grass-fed, Sussex-reared steak.
