The Elm Tree
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Elm Tree is a welcoming sight on Witney's West End, painted sage-green and white, with signs promising real ales and fresh homemade food. The weary rambler's heart will no doubt skip a beat when they spy the menu, for it is simply bursting at the seams with traditional pub fare. Those visiting on frosty days will be delighted with the shepherd's pie, topped with fluffy mashed potatoes, or a jacket potato filled with fiery chilli. Sunday diners won't be disappointed with the traditional roast, which is served with fresh vegetables and plenty of gravy; and those who have been burning the candle at both ends will breathe a sigh of relief when presented with an all-day breakfast. The fish and chips - served with a generous dollop of mushy peas - is a favourite dish of mine, and one that I frequently make the journey to Witney for.
So, for traditional pub food, served up with a generous helping of friendliness from the cheerful bar staff, look no further than The Elm Tree.
