Pubs & Inns

  • Is your favourite local restaurant on the list?

    The list of Michelin star winners, that is. The prestigious 2020 awards have just been announced - with new entries including a Bucks foodie hotspot. Take a look at the full line-up for our region.

  • The Swan, Ascott-under-Wychwood

    Did someone say quintessential Cotswold pub with a twist? Let us in, right now. We go deep into the Oxfordshire countryside to have a gander (sorry) at the brand spanking new Swan in pretty Ascott-under-Wychwood.

  • crown inn enstone

    Regally yours: The Crown Inn, Church Enstone

    Fine art and luxe design: this Cotswolds pub is upping its game thanks to a fresh new fleet of B&B rooms. Muddy checks in and checks it out.

  • The Boxing Hare

    A strong Muddy fave, The Boxing Hare in Swerford comes out fighting with a Michelin chef, experienced owners, a newly renovated orangerie and celeb clientele. Book us in!

  • The Bull on Bell Street

    I'm a big fan of this stylish brewery/restaurant - it ticks the boxes for cocktail drinkers, girl's lunches, family roasts and pretty much everything in between. Read on for my brand new review.

  • Mmmm for Marlow

    The 16th century The Chequers on the high street in Marlow is a carnivore's paradise. But, um, what happens when a vegetarian goes to review?

  • Perfectly perched

    Looking for walk and lunch combo? Muddy grabs a perch at The Perch, the idyllic riverside thatched pub in Oxford's Port Meadow.

  • 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.
