195 Godstow Road, WOLVERCOTE, OX2 8PN
The Trout was already ancient when Lewis Carroll, and later CS Lewis took inspiration here; centuries before it had been a hospice for Godstow Nunnery, on the opposite bank of the Thames. It featured in several episodes of Inspector Morse, and has long been a favourite with Oxford undergraduates. Its leaded windows, great oak beams, flagged floors and glowing fireplaces make it arguably the area's most atmospheric inn. On a summer day bag a table on the terrace by the fast flowing water to enjoy a pint and something from the menu that pleases everyone - 18-hour slow cooked British corned salt beef hash; stone-baked pizzas; and beer-battered line-caught cod and twice cooked chunky chips are possibilities.
