Set within three acres of gardens in the pretty village of Iffley, Hawkwell House is a great base for visitors to Oxford. With its shaped glass ceiling, the hotel s open-plan Iffley Blue restaurant is light and spacious with a weeping fig tree taking pride of place in the centre. You can expect focused cooking of seasonal ingredients on the modern British menu. Begin with roasted king scallop, celeriac, chicken wing sauce and apple, perhaps followed by confit pork belly, roasted parsnip, choucroute and salsify. Chocolate tart, salted caramel, popcorn, praline and vanilla ice cream makes for a satisfying conclusion.
