A laid-back young feel for an old pub in Charlbury, all friendly log fires, beautiful food, a beer garden in the offing and oodles of charm

The old pub sits on Sheep Street and ticks all the right boxes for lovers of Cotswolds’ inns: great food, great service, gorgeous interiors. But it’s the homely feel that pulls it into a class of its own. Warm up by log fires with a Bloody Mary (house speciality) or a pint of Fullers, and perhaps a starter of red gurnard with harissa. Menus change daily, the burgers (from local beef) are amazing, the wine list is short and includes some great finds… Charlie (young, friendly, charming) recently ran a vineyard in France. Find kelim rugs on seagrass floors, white limed beams and rustic walls, a sparkling little bar with zinc tops, and wood panelling painted a Georgian slate blue. Everyone’s welcome including kids and dogs, and the menu is short and delightful: baked gnocchi with mozzarella; battered whiting and chips; Pie of the Day with winter greens; chocolate sundae.
