Boasting both a traditional dining area and an airy conservatory – great for sunny summer lunches and romantic star-lit dinners – The Fish at Sutton Courtenay makes great use of its space. Playing to its strengths, the bar area retains all the charms of a rural Oxfordshire venue and is comfortably rustic with unfinished wood adorning surfaces, accentuated by cushioned farmhouse chairs.

Understandably, The Fish has gained the attention of diners across the county. Head chef Jean-Phillipe creates a spectacular range of dishes, drawing together the principles of contemporary cuisine with traditional ingredients to result in perfection.

The fillet of hake with gingerbread crust, pistachio and coconut sauce, new potatoes, and seasonal vegetables really stood out for us; as did the exceptional Scottish rib-eye steak served with peppercorn sauce, vegetables and French fries. Both dishes were beautifully presented, and the cooking, naturally, was exemplary.

Expect a diverse range of colourful and comforting desserts such as lemon cheesecake with raspberry sorbet and coulis, meringues with crème Chantilly, pineapple, mango, and raspberry sorbet, and warm banana bread with coconut ice cream and toffee sauce.

Another string to The Fish’s bow comes in the form of an extensive wine list, featuring a wide range of bottles from around the globe. A good number of these are served by the glass, including a crisp and floral sauvignon blanc from Languedoc-Roussillon in southern France, and a Spanish Rioja for those who prefer a light and fruity red.

The Fish also provides a great-value set menu, offering two courses for just £16 and three for £19, available for lunch Tuesday to Saturday and dinner Tuesday to Thursday. The team proved to be the icing on the cake, as the service was also excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about the cuisine – we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
