This pub's traditional interior of dark wood floors and a double-sided open fire also houses a curving bar stocking ales such as Purity Mad Goose. Snacks include home-made pork scratchings, Scotch eggs, sandwiches and granary baps. Further 'simple and tasty' possibilities are burger and chips; a range of pizzas; beer-battered fish and chips; roasted vegetable strudel with braised red cabbage; and 'proper' ham, egg and chips. Beyond The Stables function room you’ll find a private garden. The pub’s name? James Figg, born in Thame in 1684, was the bare-knuckle boxer who Jack Dempsey called the 'father of modern boxing'.
