This family-run, dog-friendly pub can be found in Burford, near Oxford. The Grade II listed Royal Oak is both welcoming and relaxed, successfully blending traditional decor with contemporary style. Guests can expect to find a wide range of local ale, beer and wine, as well as quality gastropub fare. The Sunday lunches and traditional homemade pies are very sought after, so it’s worth making the trip to sample them.

On our visit, husband-and-wife team Jeanette and John couldn’t have been more accommodating, and chef son Harry was busy creating an inspired menu with seasonal specials. Wild boar and apple sausages, beer-battered fish and chips and spicy chilli were all on offer, as well as plenty of veggie options, making the decision of what to sample a tricky one.

Our dinner started with baked Camembert for two with bread and cranberry sauce, which was divine. My dining partner cleared her plate after her hearty homemade steak and ale pie, and my main of smoked haddock, poached eggs and asparagus was beautiful. With plenty of puddings to ponder, we decided to go for Eton mess and lemon tart with raspberry sorbet, and coffee to wash it all down. It’s not just the food that tempts diners – there’s also comfortable accommodation to make use of and events that run throughout the year. This lovely gastropub deserves to be at the top of every foodie’s hit list.
