If feeling famished on your tour of Oxford, then seek out this rustically-cool pub on Osney Island in the heart of the city – it enjoys a magnificent and very tranquil spot beside the river. The decor is eclectic and interesting, with much to catch the eye, from rugs on flagstone floors and mismatched tables and chairs to bold artwork on whitewashed walls. Come for a relaxing pint of Punter Ale by the river or refuel on something tempting from the daily menu – pork goulash with pitta bread; potato gnocchi with swimmer crab and samphire sauce; rabbit cacciatore with polenta and fine beans; or chestnut and gorgonzola risotto with fried sage leaves.
