Oxfordshire has an abundance of great places to get delicious food and drink. Indeed, one of the many perks of living in Oxford is the great village pubs that surround the city. If you’re looking for the cosy comfort of a traditional English pub, combined with a top-quality dining experience, Oxfordshire’s gastropubs may be ideal, offering fine-dining experiences in a homely setting. From The Swan Inn in Swinbrook to the Nut Tree Inn in Murcott, here are some of our favourite gastropubs in Oxfordshire.
The Bell Inn is a modern country pub with eight newly renovated rooms, a cosy bar area with lots of seating to have a quiet drink, a separate restaurant with an open fire and pizza oven offering a seasonal British menu, and a beer garden overlooking the open countryside.
The handsome 17th-century Killingworth Castle in Wootton near Woodstock is as much a local pub as it is a dining destination. Concise menus have a British heart, with everything from jams and chutneys to ice cream, bread and sausages made from scratch on-site.
