Located in the quaint village of Long Crendon amidst picturesque thatched cottages, you’ll find The Eight Bells, a quintessentially British village pub that’s brimming with character. Just a 15-minute drive from the centre of Oxford and five miles from the M40, Eight Bells is the ideal place in which to retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life without having to travel too far. Nestled on the edge of the Chiltern Hills, this serene environment encourages total relaxation. From the very first glimpse of this charming pub you know you’re in for a treat. The pretty exterior, with its old fashioned charm is a welcoming sight. Step inside and you’ll find everything you could want from a cosy local pub; traditional features like an open log fire, original beams and tankards hanging overhead create a warm, homely feel that’s enhanced by the friendly, welcoming staff. In the summer visitors flock to the lovely garden to enjoy a refreshing pint in the sun.

A visit to Eight Bells wouldn’t be complete without sampling some of the exceptional dishes that the talented kitchen team produces. It’s the food here that really ensures that this pub is a cut above the rest. A great wine list accompanies the food, and knowledgeable staff can recommend the perfect pairing to your meal. You may sup smooth Chilean merlot whilst enjoying a starter of crispy sweet chilli beef, and follow with glass of fruity Miopasso Nero d’Avola to accompany a main course of slow-braised shoulder of lamb. Other dishes from the regularly changing menu could include sumptuous pies with hand-cut chips and fresh vegetables, and gourmet burgers. Desserts like apple and plum crumble, and gingerbread bread and butter pudding ensure proceedings end on a high. Children are well catered for with a selection of tasty dishes, while the dog-friendly atmosphere makes this a great spot for the whole family. They also serve delicious handmade pizzas that are stone-baked in an authentic pizza oven, and are available to takeaway and enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

Regular entertainment including live bands and quiz nights, as well as a special menu evening, mean there’s always a reason to visit The Eight Bells.
