Fodor's Review

It's worth detouring a bit for this supremely appealing pub on the village green at Great Tew, about 8 miles northwest of Woodstock. The bar stocks fruit wines and snuff as well as local ales, and there's a fine selection of mugs and jugs hanging from the beams. The small restaurant chalks up a traditional but creative menu, which includes dishes like baked salmon with pine nut and watercress crust alongside pub classics such as beer-battered fish-and-chips or a tasty homemade pie of the day. Sandwiches and Ploughman's lunches are available in the afternoon. Book ahead on weekends. If you can't bear to leave, a spiral stone staircase leads to five guest rooms (£100 per night).
