Built in Elizabethan times, this ancient, black-and-white timbered village pub appears as if on cue after an invigorating walk along the Ridgeway and White Horse Hill (NT), Uffington. It is said that Thomas Hughes (of Tom Brown’s Schooldays fame) penned some of his works here; indeed, one is called The Scouring of the White Horse. Upholstered stools line the traditional bar, and the fireplace conceals two priest holes which you can see if you don't mind getting your knees grubby. A weekday lunch could be pie of the day with potatoes and veg, or a super-food salad. For dinner, how about slow-braised ox cheeks, horseradish mash and onion sauce? The pub has a garden, although dogs are welcome throughout.
