On the Thames path in rural Cricklade sits The Red Lion, an exceptional country pub that dates back to the 1600s. Locals and visitors flock here not only to enjoy top-notch fare made using seasonal local produce, but also for the excellent beer selection, which is one of the best in the area and includes four speciality beers from their own microbrewery. They also keep their own pedigree Saddleback pigs nearby, demonstrating an attention to detail that has helped to earn the pub many awards and accolades.

Informal pub classics are served in the bar, whilst top-quality cuisine is offered in the comfortable restaurant. While we perused the menu, we sampled three separate beers in third-pint 'tipple' glasses - great if you're finding it tricky to choose just one to try. My starter was a garden party in a glass: an exquisitely light and refreshing minted pea and cucumber pannacotta. I followed with a beautifully juicy chargrilled Belted Galloway rib-eye steak, whilst my partner raved about the shepherd's pie and lamb sweetbreads. One of the best treacle tarts I've ever tasted, served with clotted cream, provided a fittingly hearty finish to this fine feast.

The Red Lion is thoroughly deserving of its high reputation for first-rate food and drink. The pub's huge garden is a popular spot on warm summer days, and the five well-appointed en-suite rooms are ideal for a relaxed weekend away
