Reader Treats Just For You!


  • 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.

  • Durban Spice and all things nice

    A South African chef has started serving sell-out pop-up supper clubs from his house in the middle of Wheatley. So what's all the fuss about? Waiter, my napkin please!

  • Summer supper clubs

    Can't be bothered to cook? Yeah, same here. Get in on the pop-up supper club action across Bucks & Oxon this summer- share tables, conversation and seriously impressive food.

  • Muddy eats: Monkey Island Brasserie, Bray

    A new hotel brasserie in foodie Bray with an ex-Simpson’s on the Strand head chef in the kitchen. We felt it our duty to nail three courses - *ahem* actually make that five - and report back.

  • The Greyhound Inn, Letcombe Regis

    Best-selling author Clover Stroud dons the Muddy elastic-waistband reviewing trousers before getting fully acquainted with the menu at this friendly Ridgeway pub. The cheddar soufflé is the one, apparently.

  • Do Henley Regatta in style

    The annual rowing fandango is fast approaching (3-7 July), and this year there's a flash VIP experience that's got Muddy's name written all over it. Shall we?

  • The White House, Bladon

    Near Blenheim Palace and happen to be starving? The White House, an award-winning, non-tradional gastropub should do just the trick.

  • Muddy eats: The Royal Oak

    This village pub on the outskirts of Marlow has an ex-Soho House head chef in the kitchen. So we felt it our duty to nail three courses and report back. Seriously, the things I do for you.

  • 23 brilliant pub gardens

    Summer is coming. I repeat, summer is coming! Here's where to soak up some rays with a chilled glass of rosé to hand in Bucks & Oxon. Cheers!

  • Muddy eats: The Greyhound, Rotherfield Peppard

    Muddy heads down to celeb chef Antony Worrall Thompson's renowned south Oxon gastropub. Bonkers interiors and stunning food? Now you're talking.
