A delicious meal and a pint of real ale whilst soaking up the sun on the banks of the River Isis is the thing daydreams are made of. The Head of the River is a fine place to do just that. This gorgeous waterside pub and restaurant not only has an enviable location, but prides itself on the quality of its classic British cuisine.

If you're a game fan, try the famous venison burger with grilled apple, delicious Oxford blue cheese and homemade tomato sauce, or plump for potted ham hock with toasted brioche and English ale chutney. Seafood lovers might go for fresh mussels or homemade salmon and smoked haddock fishcakes with chicory salad and wasabi dip, for something with an exotic tang. The skilled kitchen team are also known to whip up delicious deli platters - wonderful accompanied by a glass of wine or seasonal ale. Speaking of which, given that The Head of the River has been awarded Master Cellarman status, beer buffs can rest assured of quality and freshness.

Sundays see a superb roast on offer, complete with all the trimmings. It's quite possible that you won't want to leave this charming establishment. But there's no need to worry, as there are 12 stylish and contemporary guestrooms in which to rest your weary head.
