Overlooking Deddington’s pretty market square, this striking 16th-century former coaching inn boasts a wealth of timbering, flagstone floors, numerous nooks and crannies, crackling winter log fires and sought-after window seats in the beamed bar. Here you can savour a glass of Hook Norton or Somersby cider while perusing the menu. Eat in the bar or head for the elegant dining room. The cheese selection tempts with notable products from around the UK.
