EAT OUT

  • Carnivores united!

    All the fuss about clean eating and vegan this-and-that driving you insane? Here, get your chops around the unashamedly meat eats at The Chequers in Marlow.

  • The Bull on Bell Street, Henley

    One of my favourite eating spots in Henley, The Bull on Bell St ticks the boxes for cocktail drinkers, girl's lunches, family roasts and pretty much everything in between. Cool interiors too, don't you think?

  • London afternoon tea fashion shaped food colourful

    More scones, madam?

    It's Afternoon Tea Week from 14-20 Aug, but we don't need any encouragement to scoff tiny cakes and drink Earl Grey. Do we know anywhere nice? Of course we do!

  • Dirty Bones, Oxford

    Hip hop, hipster mac'n'cheese and dangerous cocktails - sounds like a job for Muddy's resident millennial, Sophie "The Hedonist" Hadj.

  • old thatched inn pub white walls thatched roof pink flowers

    The Old Thatched Inn

    There's only so many pub Sunday lunches I can wolf down in one month, so I despatched Muddy's Nicky Richardson to carb load on my behalf at this classic rural pub-restaurant.

  • Gin Heaven at The Feathers, Woodstock

    Take one 17th century hotel, add a 400-strong gin bar, mix in one of the prettiest towns in Oxfordshire, and you're ready to be intoxicated by The Feathers Hotel.

  • Oxford’s Best Cocktails

    Because sometimes we want something with a bit more pizzazz than a country pub, right? Make mine an Aperol Spritz, cheers.

  • Mexican wave

    Sombreros and amigos at the ready? Then let's go eat at Cocina, the new Mexican restaurant at Xscape in Milton Keynes

  • Jacob’s Plough, Bicester

    Best-selling crime writer Sharon Bolton turns her forensic eye to this stylish, family-friendly pub in Bicester. Finger print brush and evidence bags at the ready, she's going in...

  • picnic basket being opened by woman

    Wicker basket packed?

    On the back of National Picnic Week we're scoffing scotch eggs and heading off to Bucks & Oxon's 20 top picnic spots.
