    Review: The Pointer, Brill

    It's always interesting when a much-loved pub is taken over. Will this award-winning fancy-pants gastropub with rooms still be up to scratch? Muddy's Kerry Potter investigates.

  • That’ll Roux nicely

    It may have the name Roux over the door (and on the floor) but Roux at Skindles is not hunting for Michelin star status. This is modern gallic, comfort food at its best.

  • C’est magnifique!

    My french may be lousy, but The Swan restaurant in Tetsworth is brimming with gallic flair. Read my review and book in - it really is that good.

    Last minute Mother's Day scramble? Or just really want to scoff some scones? Whatever your reason, here are 10 excellent afternoon teas in our 'hood. Bring out the cake stand, pronto!

  • Giggling Squid, Henley

    Giggling Squid is that unusual thing - a restaurant chain that's going like the clappers. We had a poke around the newly refurbished Henley branch. Prawn crackers ahoy!

  • Sticks’n’Sushi, Oxford

    Chopsticks at the ready! Author Clover Stroud and her brood of five tries the much hyped Sticks'n'Sushi - but does this sleek Oxford restaurant work for kids?
