Other than the occasional quack of inquisitive ducks, the medieval village of Chalgrove may be tranquil these days but that wasn’t the case in 1643 when Prince Rupert clashed with John Hampden’s Parliamentarian forces during the first Civil War. The stream-side beer garden of this old inn overlooks the compact green at the heart of the village, where thatched cottages slumber not far from the church which is, unusually, the owner of the pub. In the bar, select from the great range of draught beers complementing the appealing menu created from the best local ingredients by chef-patron Raymond Sexton. The choice may include roulade of smoked salmon with cream cheese and chives, an appetiser for lemon sole fillets 'simply grilled in a little butter', or slow-cooked pork belly with braised vegetables and roast gravy. Finish with sticky toffee pudding or warm treacle tart courtesy of Suzanne Sexton, an accomplished pastry chef.
