  • Culinary reboot of the year?

    Attention South Oxon foodies! There’s an incredible new chef and menu at the Leatherne Bottel in Goring. Muddy’s Sascha Way gets stuck in.

    • Local stars

      It's the accolade that all chefs want - so whose wish on a Michelin star in Bucks and Oxon came true this year?

    • Is this the best boutique inn in Bucks?

      Very rare that I gush, but The Mash Inn is about to get it with two barrels for its fantastic offering for grown-ups in rolling Chiltern countryside. Go, go, go!

    • The Lion, Wendlebury

      This vast pub-with-rooms near Bicester Village is offers lovely all-day dining. Muddy pops in and pigs out.

    • Carnivores unite!

      All the fuss about vegan this-and-that driving you insane? Get your chops around the meaty eats at The Chequers in Marlow.

    Ready to shop the new season? We’ve picked out five trends we love, with an option for every budget, and all available at Westgate Oxford (or if you can’t be bothered to move, online!).

  • Beauty
    • The Popham treatment

      Oxford hairdresser David Popham worked with Vidal Sassoon in Sixties London - so he has five decades of cutting experience. Yeah, I think I'll let him loose on my hair!

    • J’adore Isabel Marant

      We can't stretch to new Isabel Marant boots or bags right now but it's a big "OUI!" from us to her super-chic new lipsticks.

    • The light fantastic

      I'm already planning my attack on God's Own Junkyard's neon sign pop-up at Selfridges. I want it all. And I want it now!

    • Drink me

      When you drink as much caffeine as I do, a decent mug collection is a must. Pop the kettle on, love, and I'll show you my new season favourites.
