Good Hotel Guide Review

In the Vale of the White Horse guests enjoy ‘delicious’ food, ‘exceptional’ accommodation, and a ‘fine welcome’ at this 18th-century country pub with ‘a lovely beer garden’. Owners Martyn Reed and Catriona Galbraith have ‘given the red brick building a new lease of life’, transforming it into both an idyllic retreat and the focal point of ‘a village full of birdsong’, with events including jazz and pizza nights, garden parties, a monthly quiz. Downstairs, dining areas branch from the earthy-hued main bar (craft ales, well-chosen wine), with leather club chairs around brick fireplaces. Here, visitors and regulars enjoy chef Liam Whittle’s ‘imaginative’ menus, served by ‘friendly staff’: such dishes as pan roasted duck breast, pickled blackberries, fondant potatoes, and chicory. Upstairs, the ‘comfortable’ bedrooms have a contemporary country style with mellow beams and splashes of colour from cushions, throws and artwork. All have fresh milk, home-made biscuits, a Roberts radio; and a ‘smart, well-lit bathroom’ with Bramley toiletries, a bath, a monsoon shower, or both. Breakfast brings ‘a small buffet, good cooked dishes’. (AT, and others)
