Pubs & Inns

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Roasts with the most

    Can't be bothered to baste potatoes with goose fat this weekend? I hear you. Instead grab your gang and head to one of these 10 local gastropubs that do roasts with the most.

    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.

  • Fancy lunch in the Cotswolds?

    Well, if you insist! Muddy heads to Burford to chow down three courses in a bucolic, brilliantly-priced, dog-friendly inn. Definitely one to add to your list.

  • The Anchor, Oxford

    Author Clover Stroud dons the elasticated pants to eat her way through this laid back, family friendly local gastro pub in Oxford's Jericho district. What a trooper!

  • Muddy stays: The Fleece, Witney

    Cocktails in the Cotswolds? Well, if you insist. Muddy whizzes to Witney to check out a sleek gastro-pub with rooms.
