Shenington, Banbury, OX15 6NQ

The Bell at Shenington is built from strikingly distinctive local ironstone. First opened in 1700, the pub is run by experienced proprietors Mike Hendry and Jennifer Allott, who, along with their dog Max, bring the true pub experience to the quaint village of Shenington – extending an inclusive welcome to all. Of course, a big part of the true pub experience hinges on great pub food. Mike and Jennifer know this, and strive to surprise with imaginative meals rooted in honest country fare.

Expect delightful seafood dishes such as lemon sole with sweet potato, samphire and capers, and hearty meat options such as roast lamb loin with braised shoulder, confit breast, braised baby gem lettuce, and petits pois. Everything is presented beautifully and the menu showcases freshly prepared, top-quality ingredients. The chalkboard menu is updated as fresh produce arrives on-site, and ingredients change with the seasons. The kitchen team excels with the creative challenge this provides, and will adapt meals to suit diners’ needs.

A full bar complement tops off this fantastic countryside inn – it’s chock-full of great ales and lagers, and a number of premium spirits. The wine list is extensive, yet reasonably priced and boasts 36 different bottles, nine of which are available by the glass. Dogs, children and muddy boots are always welcome in the pub, and you’re guaranteed a warm and cosy dining experience throughout the year.
