Pubs & Inns

  • 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?

    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.

  • 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...

  • The loveliest pubs with rooms

    Fancy a weekend away in the countryside? The Muddy editors across 19 counties know all the best spots for a relaxed overnighter.

  • Worrall Thompson winner

    Excellent food and service from this quirky Worrall Thompson gastro pub in South Oxfordshire, renowned for its Wagyu beef. Shall we?

  • 15 lovely pub gardens

    Here comes the sun! Get thee to a pub garden pronto, I say. Pint of lager for me and a small white wine spritzer for the husband, thanks!

  • Owzat! The Bat and Ball

    Sunday lunch deluxe for families, locals, walkers and casual dropper-inners at this friendly pub near the M40 in mid-Oxfordshire.

  • We love The Bottle & Glass

    This recently refurbished rural inn near Henley looks like your classic country pub - but the food is anything but ordinary. Table for two, please, and make it snappy!

  • The Red Lion, Cholsey

    A stylish revamp, liberal sprinkling of fairy lights and three new enthusiastic owners in this historic pub in Cholsey, where Agatha Christie once lived. Who dunnit? The locals!

  • Snuggly Cotswolds pubs

    Day tripping across the borders? Well, you'll need a steer on the best places for a classy pit stop then!
