Restaurants

  • Culinary reboot of the year?

    Attention South Oxon foodies! There's an incredible new chef and menu at the Leatherne Bottel in Goring. Muddy's Sascha Way gets stuck in.

  • Need a romantic weekend away?

    We make a break for the border, with Muddy's Sophie checking in to the recently refurbed Woburn Hotel in Beds for a romantic weekend. Ooh la la!

  • Local stars

    It's the accolade that all chefs want - so whose wish on a Michelin star in Bucks and Oxon came true this year?

  • Is this the best boutique inn in Bucks?

    Very rare that I gush, but The Mash Inn is about to get it with two barrels for its fantastic offering for grown-ups in rolling Chiltern countryside. Go!

  • Dirty Bones, Oxford

    Hip hop, hipster mac'n'cheese and dangerous cocktails - sounds like a job for Muddy's resident millennial, Sophie "The Hedonist" Hadj.

  • Gin Heaven at The Feathers, Woodstock

    Take one 17th century hotel, add a 400-strong gin bar, mix in one of the prettiest towns in Oxfordshire, and you're ready to be intoxicated by The Feathers Hotel.

  • Mexican wave

    Sombreros and amigos at the ready? Then let's go eat at Cocina, the new Mexican restaurant at Xscape in Milton Keynes

    7 Michelin stars

    It's the 20th birthday of Newbury's The Vineyard, and 7 famous former chefs are cooking up a storm to celebrate.
