Imaginative cooking and Cotswold ales

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year
Dog friendly
Free Wi-Fi

Presiding over Charlbury’s main street, this handsome stone-fronted 16th-century free house, is a conveniently short hop from Woodstock, Blenheim Palace and other attractions of the Cotswolds. Inside the décor is beautiful and refreshingly homely. Outside, their vine-covered terrace is a lovely backdrop for a drink or meal in summer. The bar offers Bull Bitter and weekly guest ales. The changing menu adapts to the seasons and what's available at the markets that week. That said, you can always rely on the infamous Bull burger, a pie of the week, fish and chips and other pub classics to always be available. There are eight bedrooms if you're staying in the area.
